rockrings review

Postby Admin » Tue Jan 15, 2008 11:43 am

After finding simplefit translates well to rock climbing I have taken up the sport. Just purchased a pair of these and thought they were worth mentioning they are awesome for hand strength but also very humbling. I hang them from my door gym and do their included workout after I do my simplefit workout. If I do not blow a tendon hanging from 3 fingers I should be tearing phone books and popping tennises balls in no time :P
