5 Reasons Why Wooden Gymnastic Rings Are The Best

Gymnastics Rings are one of the best tools for building upper body strength with calisthenics. Before purchasing a pair, it is important to note there are three different materials that exist on the market. Metal , wood and plastic are the three options.

In this blog post we will go over why you should purchase the wooden rings.

1. Temperature Regulation

Wood has a very high heat capacity. Meaning unlike metal, it won't feel cold to the touch when first using them. Furthermore, they won't feel too warm when holding them for a long time. They will always feel great.

2. Wood Gym Rings Are Lightweight

Wood is the lightest material out of the three that are offered. Therefore your gymnastic rings will be very easy to carry with you. It is perfect when you are taking them on your travels or are just looking to have them in your gym bag to train outdoors or at the gym.

4. Used in Competition

If you are training for competitions, you ought to use the same materials as the rings that they will have at the competitions. Both the Olympics and the Crossfit® Games use wood and 99% of competitions will most likely use them as well.

5. Aesthetics

It's no doubt that wooden gymnastic rings look the most beautiful. Each wooden gymnastic ring has a unique look since no two pieces of wood is identical. They are truly a work of art.


Whats the Downside of Wooden Rings?

Honestly, there isn't much. The only drawback would be the durability. They may not last as long as steel or plastic if they are left outside for a long period and are exposed to the elements.

However, I've had my wooden gymnastic rings for years and they look just as good as the first day I got them. As long as you take care of them, durability should not be an issue.


Where Can I Get Wooden Gymnastic Rings?

Wooden gymnastic Rings can be found quite easily online. However, The Neo-RINGS are the only wood rings that offer two thicknesses in one.
