I currently have only sufficent funds to buy either a set of rings and straps or an olympic bar and 135 kg (297 lbs) of weights and I was wondering which is more essential (accepting that both will be required eventually. To make the decision a little harder I do not current have access to rings or a pull up bar with sufficient head room to do (try to do) muscle ups and my current gym's heaviest barbell is 35kg (77lbs), and for anything heavier I have to go to a gym down the road (which inconviently has seperate areas for cardio and free weight gear - not very Crossfit). Any help or advice is much appreciated. Thanks in anticipation Dave.

I have both and I believe that the bar and weights are more valuable overall.

i think that overall the weights and the bar are far more important then the rings. pull up bars are not hard or expensive to make, if you cant find a good spot around the house, and there are no good trees around you can go to any hardware store and buy a thick wooden pole with a couple length of rope, all costing maybe 5 bucks. then you have a pull up bar you can throw up really anyware. hope this helps
