Description

Train on the go with the Metolius Rock Rings.

When you can’t get out to the crags or the gym, hang up the Metolius Rock Rings and squeeze in a workout. Unlike a hangboard, the Rock Rings’ free-hanging, single-point suspension allows your joints to rotate and prevents injury. Large top jugs and three sizes of incut holds allow for comprehensive training, and the portable design lets you bring and hang them anywhere.

Great Training Aid

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There are no climbing gyms where I live, so when the weather doesn't play nice and I can't get to a rock wall, I at least have these to train on. They are great for improving contact, upper body and even core strengths. With great portability at a low price these are an excellent addition for any climber.

Portable sanity...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fit in luggage where a fingerboard won't.

Rock rings are just great. Well made. Good price. Zero issues.

Pullups in the shadows

My garage is the only place I could hang these bad boys, but I walk past the inner garage door every time I enter the kitchen, so I've been busting out 20-40 pullups a day, between snack breaks, for two weeks now. Wife is pleased. DO IT.

Nice Rings

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are good rings to have for pull up related workouts. They are fairly inexpensive which is a plus and they are nicer than using a standard pull up bar. They can be attached pretty much anywhere, I've had them on a door frame pull up bar with the included rope and to eyebolts with the rope and carabiners. They are pretty much just jugs though, and you just vary how many fingers you can place per level.

It also seems like you could place them on a climbing wall as a hold since they have holes through their face.

Way better than a pull up bar

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great for training and offer so much versatility. Plus they are tough and inexpensive. There are a ton of options for hanging these but I bought a couple heavy duty screw hooks and hung these from studs in the garage.

Rockin Way to Train

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these to help build up contact strength and improve my general condition while I decided which rock gym to join (here in Seattle we do have a few to choose from depending on whether you want your emphasis to be bouldering or top roping/lead climbing). After 6 months of climbing I'm still finding these helpful when I want get in a little time conditioning but don't have time for a full session at the gym. The other reviews have hit the highlights: compact size, variety in mounting and exercise options, range grips and angles. For around $30 these are a really inexpensive way to get an intense sport specific workout.

Exactly What You See

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Its a great way to get a solid workout in and not have to leave your home. Metolius even has a 10 min workout that you can try on it that is extremely challenging.

versatile training equipment

awesome way to get your pull ups in with out having to use the same old pull up bar, also more challenging with the 4 different places you can grab it, then you can also change the direction of your hands, and the rope itself adds more of a challenge. Rock rings also give you an option for un even pull ups when your training calls for it. so yes they are versatile. but you just have to have a god place to hang them.

challenge accepted.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i didnt realize what my workout was missing until i started mixing these in for pull ups. they are difficult to keep straight and theyre definitely different then your standard training board. overall id suggest them for a friend who doesnt have the option to mount on a wall like me in a dorm room.

Liked the old ones more

cool product. the free floating design is nice: it can be easier on your shoulders and can help you train for pulling at different angles. the portability is great too. the only bummer is that the bottom rung is too small now. instead of a crimp, it's a 2 finger pocket.

if you have the space and funds for a hangboard, it's a more effective training tool. but rock rings are still great.

Real Men use these

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fast delivery as promised. The hand blocks are heavy, come with their own fastening cord and look indestructible. They allow you to do chin-ups, pull-ups and angle your hands any way that is comfortable. You can attach the blocks to a pull-up bar at the gym and make them close together or far apart. The finger holes really do separate the men from the boys.

Keep those fingers stong!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the rock rings for their portability and their flexibility. I didn't want to mount a fingerboard in my rental, so I hang the rock rings off the 8 foot high back deck with a little nylon webbing and a couple carabiners--non-permanent, no drill holes. I love figuring out all the creative ways I can use them to do more than just dead hangs and pull ups. There are a couple competitors to the rock rings now that have a greater diversity of grip options, but I don't feel the need to replace this quite yet.

makes my hands hurt

...but then again, that's the point, right? these babies really do work. at first i had to start out using basically only the easiest holds for every exercise. getting better though.

Do you want to get stronger?

Then you need to buy these! After my first training session with them, my forearms were completely dead. With a couple of weeks under my belt, I have already become much stronger. For the price, they can't be beat.

get these!

perfect for working out while away from the gym or crag.

They errrr. rock!

I have had these for 2 months and have yet to get bored and just keep getting stronger.

My latest game is "build a belay, dead ass variation" Use a log or stool to hang 50 degrees or so. Do 15 pullups, then Lock off with the right hand and place a red or pink tricam in the left pocket. Lock off with the left hand and place a TCU or master cam in one of the right pockets and then sling an anchor and attach your harness and hang. Reverse process and have a beer. It is nice to know you can building an anchor when you are totally pumped.

Are they made to do this... probably not, but I've been doing it for a month and they look like new.

They errrr. rock!

Much better than a pull-up bar

These things are great for training. They provide a different type of resistance because they require you to tighten your core when using them to prevent your body from swinging. I have a pull-up bar, but seldom use it since installing these. It takes some getting used to, but once you do they are some of the most effective holds I've found for increasing my strength quickly.

Perfect for any level climber!

I just started climbing seriously last year and am by no means an athlete. I decided it was time to start taking climbing a little more seriously (I wanted to be better than my friends). I mounted them on the ceiling joists in my room and have been using them for about two weeks and they are incredible! In two weeks I went from barely being able to hang on the four finger pocket to hitting a max of 12 pullups! Like with anything else this tool is only as strong as your dedication, but if you've got the drive, this will deliver the results you want!

Only bad thing as a little side note, the bottom hold is advertised as a 3 finger pocket but I have average size hands and can only fit two fingers in them.
