Ring Exercise Snapshot: Pull Ups

Ring Exercise Snapshot: Pull Ups

By Brittney Thornton

This pull up variation utilizes a neutral grip while creating more core activation with the instability of the rings vs. a normal bar. This can be a better option for people struggling with wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries.

How To:

  1. Adjust the rings to the correct height so that you can hang without your feet touching the ground
  2. Start by hanging from the rings, but keep the shoulders engaged
  3. Pull yourself up
  4. Lower back down under control

Tip: You never want to hang fully relaxed. Always keep the shoulder blades engaged, meaning pulled down away from the ears.
