I'm interested in adding some ring work to my workouts, but $65 is kind of expensive (elite rings from Especially when I don't even know if I'll continue to use them.

Any ideas on alternates, homemade options or other sites? My searches yielded nothing.

Judo belts used as rings.

Recently I've been used heavy duty lifting slings, for a 'no more knots' solution to cheap and quick rings. Choke them around a tree limb or pull up bar and they're ready to go.

If you don't know where to find these items locally, they are easily aquirable on EBay.

I have yet to receive my rings, and I have never trained on rings, this was my thought process:

1. Trip to home depot $.35 per mile
2. Your time at home depot.
3. PVC pipe $ (probably 8 feet for $10)
4. Chain $
5. Webbing or straps to hang them $
6. electricty to soften the pvc
7. Time screwing around with hot PVC pipe.
8. get it right the first time or redo?

Result: funky ring like things that work *ok* and you paid something less than rings you could have purchased, maybe.

Buy the rings from ringtraining. If you don't like them. Sell them here for $20 less. Ship them ups or in a USPS one rate box "Any weight, any State, $8.10."

You probably spent the same amount of money, saved a lot of time, and will probably be more happy with training on them than on the homemade rings.

Again, this is just what my thought process was YMMV.
