Factors to consider when choosing gymnastic rings for safe and effective workouts

Firstly, you need to consider the material of the rings, whether talking about wooden gymnastic rings, plastic or metal. Secondly, the size and thickness of the rings are crucial to ensure a comfortable grip while using them. You also need to check the weight limit of the rings to ensure they can hold your weight safely. Additionally, it is advisable to consider the strap length and the buckle mechanism, to ensure that they can be easily and securely attached to your desired location. There are only a few brands with length markings on the straps. Adjustable straps with length markings are important for gymnastics rings because they help ensure safe and effective exercise by indicating the correct height and level of the rings.

What is the best material for gymnastic rings?

You’ll find gymnastic rings made from wood gymnastic rings, plastic gymnastic rings or steel. Wooden gymnastic rings offer superior grip and comfort - ideal for sweaty sessions. As plastic rings are durable they’re great if you’re training outdoors, while steel rings are also durable but more suited to indoor training as they’ll be cold to touch outdoors.

Wooden gymnastic rings differ in many respects from gymnastic rings made of plastic. For the rings made of wood, quickly renewable and therefore sustainable wood species are used. In addition, your gym rings have a long lifespan and offer you an optimal grip during training. Compared to plastic, wood absorbs moisture such as sweat, which is why even professionals trust it and use wooden rings in gymnastics.

Get a grip on your Gymnastic Ring Workouts: Which Diameter is best for You?

There are two standard sizes: 28mm and 32mm thickness. The former is the standard size for the International Gymnastics Federation and is used in gymnastic competitions, while the 32mm rings are often used for CrossFit. Experts tend to recommend 32mm rings if you’re a beginner.

Premium Turnringe von DIE RINGE

Essential Turnringe von DIE RINGE

The standardized diameter from gymnastics is 28 mm. However, it should be remembered that gymnasts usually do gymnastics with straps and a lot of chalk. This makes the final grip diameter larger. Studies on grip strength show that for an average hand, the optimal grip diameter for strength development is around 31-33 mm. Our own experience is that 32 mm diameter rings are more comfortable to grip for large & medium-sized hands and also provide more bearing surface in a supporting position.
