Re: What kind of rings do you use?

Just food for thought...I would bet my plastic rings to last me a lifetime.

I'm in a meeting with fellow Ring Frats and they deem wooden rings more grippy without chalk than plastic rings and more authentic.

Re: Front levers

Nice work! The straddle front lever varies in difficulty for each person because the more flexible you are the less weight is out in front of you. As an additional progression you can gradually straighten the legs from the advanced tuck position.

Re: What kind of rings do you use?

Mike is right, plastic rings don't hold chalk well at all but that may not be an issue to some. The benefits are that they're cheap and you can work around the chalk issue.

Progress from the tuck hold to an l-sit only with a larger angle like 120 degrees and gradually decrease the angle. D...
