PREMIUM GYMNASTICS RINGS - WOOD

This weekend only get our number one best selling premium US Made Wood Gymnastics Rings for $59.99 out the door!  This sale won't last so get yours now.  **And we'll pick one buyer at random and include an awesome free gift!**

Our wood Gymnastic Rings are one of the most versatile pieces of home gym equipment you can own.  Many athletes are turning back to old school equipment that doesn't need to be plugged in.  And Gymnastic Rings are one of those tools that can be used to challenge any level athlete.

Our wood rings have been featured in a host of competitions throughout the US to challenge top level athletes.  Movements like ring dips, muscle-ups, back levers, front levers, ring push ups, pullups, knees to elbows and even static holds and ring turn outs will keep your programming options varied and your workouts fun and intense.

Our first product introduced back in 2010, our gymnastic rings are still manufactured from wood.  Wood has that perfect feel that takes chalk well and helps hold our grip even through those long workouts.  And even after a year of use, buffing them up with sandpaper returns them to like-new condition.

Product Specifications:

  • 100% Made in USA
  • [2] Wood Rings and [2] Ring Straps included with purchase
  • Dimensional Info - Outside Diameter 9", Thickness 1.11" FIG Specs*
  • Straps 1-1/2" Wide Polypropylene and 15 feet long
  • Cam Buckle - coated with a non-slick matte black powder coat
  • Maximum Distance from Hanging Point - The bottom of the gymnastics rings will hang 8'11" down from the hanging point in the ceiling.

Note: Our wood rings and polypro straps are great for the occasional outdoor training session but should not be stored outside in the weather or used in the rain.  Hanging ring straps from sharp or abrasive surfaces voids the warranty.

Here's a list of our favorite exercises:

  1. Ring Rows - with your body weight supported below the gymnastic rings, the instability is greatly lessened.  And that's not a bad thing, especially when you are first starting out.  For the ring row, start by hanging the gymnastics rings so that the bottom of the ring is level with your waist.  Grab the rings with both hands and lower your body to a supported position underneath.  Keep your core tight and your body position flat.  Raise your chest to the rings as high as possible and lower again to the starting position.  Work in sets of 3-5 with a continuously running clock, beginning work at the top of each minute.  Rest more if needed.  Gear Tip:  The natural position of the hands during the movement is palms facing each other.  To increase difficulty and to vary the muscles worked, rotate the palms to either facing your feet or facing your head.

  2. Supported Position - working the supported position above the rings is another great beginning exercise that anyone can do.  With a continuously running clock and the gymnastics rings hung from waist high position, grab the rings and jump up into a fully supported position with arms straight and close to your hips.  Hold the position for 5-10 seconds then lower yourself to the floor.  At the top of each minute jump into position.  Work on this movement for sets of 3-5.

  3. Plank Hold - Position the gymnastics rings so that they are 2-3 inches from the floor.  Get into a good plank position with a straight back and tight core then grab a ring with each hand.  Like the supported position above, work on holding the plank for 5-10 seconds each minute for 3-5 minutes.

  4. Inverted Tuck Hangs - For those that are a bit more adventurous, hang the gymnastics rings just above waist level, grab each ring and move your body into an inverted tuck hang position.  If you are just starting out with this movement, first move your body into the ring row position then bring both of your knees to your chest.  This collapsed body position is called the 'tuck'.  Hold the tuck for 5-10 seconds each minute for 3-5 minutes.  Tip:  Once this supported position becomes comfortable at 10 or more seconds, work on extending your feet up to the ceiling for the fully inverted hang.

  5. Ring Dip Negative - with the rings at waist level and starting from a supported position above the rings, lower your body slowly keeping your arms in close.  Hold at the bottom for 3-5 seconds then jump up to a fully supported position above the rings.  Repeat for 3-5 reps every minute for 3-5 minutes.

  6. Leg Raises - With the gymnastics rings positioned overhead, grab the rings so that your body is fully extended from your arms to your toes.  Optimally, you should have to jump just a few inches to be able to grab the rings.  From this hang position bring the knees up as high as possible, curling the lower back as the knees approach the chest.  Variation:  Once this exercise is mastered, work towards getting the toes to touch the rings.

  7. Ring Rotations - absolutely stellar at building shoulder stability and strength is the gymnastic ring rotation.  It sounds simple but it is challenging to do at first.  From any of the above supported positions, work on rotating the wrists from pointing toward the hips [most natural position when first learning] to pointing away from the body.  You may find that your mobility and strength only allow you to turn the rings only slightly [especially when your body is supported above the rings] but keep at it and as your strength improves your ability to rotate the rings will too.  Even if you are turning the rings slightly at first, keep at it.  To make the movement easier, rotate the rings while in the ring pushup position.  Once your strength improves, rotate the rings from a fully supported position [top of the ring dip].  Advanced: Once this movement becomes fluid and strong, add it to the top position of every gymnastics ring dip.

  1. Had them for 3 days

    Posted by Frank on 12th Feb 2017

    The delivery was fast I felt. They even sent me daily tracking to inform of the arrival date. The thickness of rings good. Straps easy to navigate. My biggest critique? I will have to take a soft grade sand paper to them because they weren't finished and polished as rings should be. Texture is rough and it appears to have no protective finish on them.

  2. Great rings

    Posted by Ryan on 4th Feb 2017

    These are really great rings. Quality looks to be excellent. Impressed so far with this product. Will update this review a year from now to comment on how they are holding up.

  3. My second set

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2016

    Great product, this is the second set that I've purchased from Hammerhead

  4. Quality is second to none

    Posted by Shane S. on 6th Nov 2015

    The quality - from the rings to the straps to the buckle - completely exceeded my expectations.

    The only thing I'd do different, for others who are unknowing, is include an insert of how to correctly feed the straps into the buckle.

    But other than that very minor change, buy these rings. They’re awesome and exponentially better than plastic ones.

  5. Very impressed!

    Love the new wooden rings I recently purchased. Great quality and the wood provides great grip.

  6. Great product!

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Mar 2015

    The wooden rings are high quality with a heavy duty strap system. Not to mention they're equal to the quality of [Competitor's] rings and cheaper.

    *Note: Out of respect for our competitor, we've deleted the reference.

  7. Perfect for my at-home collection

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Oct 2014

    Sturdy, easy to use and extremely versatile! A definitely clutch for an at home set up.

  8. Highly recommended

    Posted by Michel Lavau on 21st Aug 2014

    In my opinion, these Hammerhead Fitness wooden rings are an outstanding product, perfectly well designed. That's when you can watch them closely that you actually realise how excellent is their quality.
    This very solid birch wood, rough just a tad to have a comfortable grip, gives a perfect feel in the hand. The wide straps and buckles are really tough, no slip at all. Those rings are light and easy to carry and set up, you'll get them ready to go anywhere.
    The big plus is that all that stuff has a lifetime warranty.
    I must not forget to praise Steve Jaeger, always very responsive to all my enquiries.
    Go get them!

  9. High Quality!!

    Posted by Jay on 20th Jul 2014

    I have compared these rings to those offered by rogue fitness. I believe they are of equal or superior quality. My criteria was for the rings to be 100% made in the USA, with a lifetime warranty, and at a reasonable price. These fit the bill. Hammerhead seems to be a down to earth company. None of the typical gimmicky advertising and inflated pricing on their equipment.

  10. rings

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jul 2014

    I absolutely love hammerhead fitness rings. I don't enjoy using plastic rings anymore. Also the straps are so easy to thread through the buckle. All our others are a nightmare to thread through
