Are plastic gymnastic rings good?

Are gymnastic rings better than weights?
The unique nature of gymnastic rings, and the exercises that can be performed with them, provide benefits beyond those of barbells or pulley machines. Transitioning your body around the rings from a variety of positions requires a significant amount of upper body strength and control.
Can I leave gymnastics rings outside?
Plastic gymnastic rings are insensitive and durable. They are weatherproof, i.e. you can leave them hanging outside because they don’t mind rain and snow. They do not absorb hand perspiration, but are washable. Good metal rings do not rust, but can oxidize or corrode.
How do you make a gymnastics ring at home?

Do gymnasts use false grip?
We’re taught to use it for strict muscle ups, and switch to regular grip for kipping muscle ups, but Olympic gymnasts keep their false grip for the majority of the routine. You’ll see their coaches hoist them up in the beginning while they get their grip, and then they keep it throughout the entire routine.
Can you do pull ups with rings?
Ring chin – ups are a great way to improve grip strength. Unlike the normal chin / pull – up, with a ring you ‘re swinging on a mobile point of contact. In addition to stabilizing the body, the ring chin – up can increase the range of motion of our pull at the top of the lift (more range of motion, more muscle activation).
Where do you hold gymnastic rings?
Place the rings further into your palms than you did with the neutral grip – around mid-palm level. Wrap your fingers around the rings and wrap your thumbs around your knuckles. Push down into the rings, creating some pressure. Your wrists should be bent, but not so far that your wrist is inside the rings.
