HMART Wooden Gymnastic Rings

Feeling like you let yourself go during any of the lockdowns these past two years? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. A whole lot of us slipped into some less-than-ideal eating and exercise habits as we coped with everything else going on.

The good news is, getting yourself back into shape and building a good deal of strength doesn’t necessarily require a gym membership or a bunch of expensive equipment at home. By following a workout routine based on calisthenics (aka bodyweight fitness) you can use your own body to work against gravity through a series of exercise progressions.

A set of adjustable gymnastic rings is invaluable for doing all kinds of bodyweight exercises, either in your home or at various places outdoors. You can hang them from secure objects such as pullup bars, stairwells, solid tree branches, swing sets, or any number of other things that can support a person’s weight.

From there, you’ll have the option of doing rows, pull-ups, dips, leg raises, pushups, and more. And because you can extend or shorten the strap as needed, they accommodate you at every level of your fitness journey, from beginner to calisthenics master.

I like wooden rings better than plastic ones because they feel nice and are easier to grip onto when your hands start getting sweaty. The downside is that you’re not supposed to leave them hanging around outdoors, meaning you have to take them down every time you finish working out. Not a huge deal, but something to consider.
