Movement Tip: The Ring Push-Up

CrossFit Seminar Staff member James Hobart demonstrates the ring push-up. Like a normal puishup, the ring push up works to strengthen the chest, shoulder and tricep muscles, but the instability of the rings brings more of the smaller stabiliser muscles into play as well as develops more core strength. Ring push-ups are a great way to build your pushup strength even from beginner level as you can alter the height of the rings to control the exercise difficulty.

Points Of Performance

  • Full grip the rings with palms facing each other
  • Legs together with only the balls of the feet on the ground
  • Start with arms extended
  • Lower chest and thighs to the ground
  • Body remains rigid
  • Elbows move closer to the hips than the shoulders
  • Complete at full arm extension
