Gymnstics? The new way to break the plateau.
Bored of spending an hour everyday lifting weights? Think that you’ve reached a plateau and don’t see progress anymore?
Try to incorporate gymnastics in your routine.
There are few tools that can build a strong, ripped upper body as effectively as gymnastics rings.
Gymnastics rings are showing up in more gyms than ever before. However, many people mistakenly believe these wooden implements are only useful for athletes who use them in competition, like gymnasts or CrossFit athletes. In reality, anyone can use the rings and benefit from them tremendously, because they help simultaneously build strength, stability, and coordination like no other apparatus.
If you’ve ever watched the gymnastics events at the Olympics, you know how much strength the rings require. What you may not know about the rings, though, is how effectively they can be used to build incredible muscular size and definition. The rings may not be the first tool that comes to mind if hypertrophy is your goal, but as the incredible physiques of elite gymnasts show, ring work can help pack muscle on the upper body.
Are they easy? No, but nothing worth pursuing is. If you’re willing to start at the bottom and master the techniques and routines of what gymnastics has to offer, go for it!
