Got a question today. And if one person is asking it, many more are probably thinking it.
“Hi, I am seriously considering buying a set of the gymnastic rings, the question is where can one use them?, it is nice that they are portable, but where would one hang them if one lived in the city or even in the park? Maybe from the crossbar of a soccer goal? any more suggestions.”
Thanks for the question Trevor. You are correct that the rings are portable. And they can be hung from most things.
The first thing to make sure is that whatever you are hanging them from will support your weight.
You can run the straps over any beam, bar or tree limb. Once you have the strap in place, you simply run the strap through the buckle and you are ready to go.
Thick tree branches would be my first pick. A soccer goal could work, assuming its stable and strong. There would also be many areas over play structures that could be used like swing sets or monkey bars.
Just make sure the area is free should you be trying some of the more dynamic exercises on the rings.

Good Luck and Good Ring Training,
P.S. Maybe I’ll go shoot a video of the setup and use in the park one of these days…
