Olympic Rings Diameter?


I was recently looking at these rings and wondering which ring set (6" or 8"rings) I should buy because this is cheaper than buying elite rings or other standard Olympic rings.


I’m not 100% familiar with ring training, but I’d imagine that as long as your hand fits comfortably inside, the 6" handles would be “easier” to start with, for leverage purposes.

But I’d be triple-certain that those rings can handle the full load of your bodyweight plus any additional weight you plan on using in the future.

Ringtraining.com has a bunch of articles you might want to read through, talking all about ring programs.
