I just got my rings a few weeks ago and they are great. Doing movements on them is much tougher than i had anticipated. I've always had alot of respect for gymnasts, but now it has been taken to a new level.

They are great, aren't they? And tough. I remember getting my rings for the 1st time and trying to progress through Tyler's "Beginner" Routine.

I was thinking at that time, if I can't do the beginner routine, what does that make me? Luckily, they're so much fun, you can progress quite quickly. There are a couple of guys posted on Tyler's site that have made some astonishing progress in a relatively short period of time.

Your initial gains with the rings will actually be an adaptation to the instability, not necessarily just strength increases. You will gain efficiencies in the motions, and resist the instability better, so you will notice pretty rapid improvement because it is mostly neural initially.

Investing in a set of Power Rings is probably the best training equipment purchase I've made. The rest of the CF gear requirements can usually be adapted at the local gym/fitness center. Only gymnastic training facilities have rings and those facilities are (for adults) nonexistent locally. The satisfaction from doing one's first unassisted muscle-up is significant... for me it was comparable to the first combat roll of a kayak.

Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it and am glad you enjoy the Power Rings.
I love watching people get their first muscle-ups. I help teach a gymnastics class at school. So far, every guy that has gone through has acheived a muscle-up. 2/5 have done it this semester already, 3 weeks into it. I was actually pretty shocked that everyone got it last semester. There was one guy that I just didn't think would make it, but ended up having the best form of anyone.

I am planning on ordering a set when I get my tax return. I can't wait. I have been wanting a set since starting Crossfit back in late September.
