For home use, what would you recommend, rings that would be outside or a door gym pull-up bar? My gym currently has no pullup bar, and I am not sure when it is going to get fixed/replaced, so I need to take care of this somehow at home. I know rings are more multi-dimensional, but they would also be outside, and my climate is not always hospitable in the winter...so anyway, feedback please.

I have hung elite rings outside.

Tyler (ringtraining.com) reckoned they wouldn't last as long as if they were inside, but the versitility they offers far outweighs that issue.

Much better than a bar inside (I used to have one).

Hope that's helpful,

Simon

Rings, rings, rings.

You don't even have to buy a $60+ pair. Alternatives abound. I've had mine outside for months in brutal seaside FL with only slight oxidation on the 'biners I used to hang them.

Seeing as you can do pull-ups on rings, as well as a -load of things you can't do on a pull-up bar, I'd go rings all the way.

Make your own! I am one of the least "handy" men to walk to ever walk the planet and I still managed to scrap together a set of rings in under an hour.

These are cheap and are probably better than the real thing. They are made for use in the toughest conditions.

Safe for work

My plans are to have both since I'll be mostly indoors during bad weather. What are your recommendations for hanging the rings with?

Wow, that's a great price. Wish I'd known about that a few months ago when I spent 60 bucks on the things.
