When it comes to bodyweight training gym rings are pretty simple but extremely effective. Especially with the ongoing CrossFit boom gym rings have regained their almost forgotten status as a great tool to perform challenging bodyweight exercises like muscle ups and dips. Thanks to the long nylon straps of 5 m the Blackthorn Gym Rings can be used almost anywhere. The maximum loop is 2.5 m which should suffice even for high ceilings. All you need is a mount that can hold the resulting forces during training and you’re ready to go. You can also use the Blackthorn Gym Rings with modular sling trainers, like our expandable aeroSling ELITE. The wooden rings have a diameter of 24 cm (9.45 in) and a grip diameter of 3 cm (1.2 in).
