You may not think it but they can add so much variation to your training, including your core musculature training. We have put together a list of the 14 most effective core movements that use the gymnastic rings and even provide a core workout you can try at the end, let’s have a look.
The most beneficial aspect of gymnastic rings is how challenging they, if we consider why a barbell is so effective for weight training its because it can create a huge stimulus as it can be easily loaded.
