I am creating a random workout generator and some of the exercises will be better with rings so whoever does not have them I encourage you to buy or make them. Rings are cheap and about the single best piece of equipment you can own.

I have a pair of Elite rings. They are a great tool.

One caution for the heavier folks: This may only be specific to me but, doing dips on the rings really irritated my right rotator cuff. My advice is to start slow with the rings until your body adapts to the excercises.

As Tyler Hass says on the site, "Any engineer will tell you that a structure will always fail at its weakest point. The Elite Rings can move anywhere, but they always move towards where you are weakest." Start slow to avoid an over use injury.
