Over the past seven years this site’s amassed an enormous amount of content. To help you find the highlights, I’ll be taking an occasional wander through the archives.
We first looked at Ring Training (in this series) almost 3 years ago. While the basic idea is very much the same, a couple of new exercise variations have cropped up since then.
Here’s another look at this wonderful form of training :
- Ring Dips with Progressions
Looking for a challenge? Try some of these. Good stuff.
- Ring Push Ups
If you’re just getting in to Ring Training, consider the humble Ring Push-Up. Feels great.
- How to Use Rings
Looking for even more ideas? No problem – over to Peter.
- DIY Rings
If you haven’t got your own rings (or you just like making your own gym gear), here’s a superbly simple set of home-made rings in action. Nice one Dan.
- Rings, Ropes and Kettlebells
Finally, a great way to integrate ring training with existing routines (NB : this is my kind of workout – outdoors, great tools).

- The Bodyweight Aficionado’s Guide to Gear (Jason Kirby)
This is a superb look at the equipment that falls into the ‘optional, but great to have‘ category.
- Another 30 Days Without Weights (Matt Potak)
If you occasionally train without the weights, there are a few things to keep in mind. Matt explains.
- Which ones to get?
If you’re starting from scratch, a kit is probably the best solution. These typically contain both the rings and instructions in the form of a DVD or eBook (or both).
My favourite is the EXF Pro package from RingTraining.com.
