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.

Here's a list of our favorite exercises:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Wooden Gymnastics Rings

The straps and buckle are awesome. Very strong and secure feeling. Would be helpful if they could be marked every half foot. Wooden rings feel solid, but notice small pockets here and there that I might fill with some wood putty. This is my first set so not sure if this is common with wood rings?? If the straps were marked for easier adjustment, and rings were fully solid with no voids, I would give 5 stars easily. A great positive, Steve confirmed lifetime warranty on straps and rings. Steve was very responsive to my inquiries. Will buy from them in the future.

The Birch Gymnastics rings have an awesome feel and just like in the description...no slip. The straps are super strong and the system can be set up pretty quickly. Even if you don't use the ceiling mount, roll up the rings and straps and use a sturdy branch, pullup bar, or beam.

I have been using metal rings for the past year. Wood provides much better grip. Go with wood!
Everything I expected!

Smooth finish but not slick. Comfortable to grip. Easy to adjust even with no numbers on the straps. Durable!!! I have had these for close to a year (same as my parallettes), use often no signs of wear. Good product good value. Can't go wrong I.M.O. I'm 6'3" tall 216lbs.
Great ring, great price

Gotta Get Wood Rings!
Posted by Bryan on 24th Mar 2012
I got my first set [of rings] in 2007 they are hardened plastic and they have lasted great. I however wouldn't recommend them anymore. I just got some wooden rings from Hammerhead Fitness they are much better than what I had. Go for wood rings from my point of view.
