Default Galimores - a Ring Strength Exercise

"One need only observe the physiques of the Olympic Gymnasts to see how uniquely effective strength training on the rings can be, and indeed the use of rings has become increasingly popular in conditioning circles . . . Galimores are an example of just one of the many demandingly productive movements possible on this piece of equipment . . ."

A new training essay on Galimores with progressions and an accompanying video is available through the link below:
