I've seen some people do this but not many. I've heard it called a few things but I just call it ring push-up to crossover.
This exercise offers the benefits received from any pressing movement as well as the benefits from any kind of fly. Also, rings require added stability to keep them in place. Lastly, this exercise is better than a regular push-up because it offers the opportunity to have a longer range of motion, allowing you get a more full stretch of the chest. If you think this will be easy and you've never done an exercise on rings, give it a shot and you may be surprised!

Strength and conditioning🏃🏽♀️🏋️♂️
Mixed in this complex during my cardio:
2 min. sprints
500 meter row
10 Heavy Russian swings (setting after each swing)
10 American swings
10 squat/upright row combo
10 shoulder presses
for a total of 45 mins👌☠️ Then did a body building style workout for shoulders, triceps, and biceps🔥🔥🤟when I program routines to mix in with my cardio, I chose exercises that’ll target muscles I’m going to train that day👍
Give it a try and you’ll be sweating like a savage 😂 #pushinglimits #performancedriven #trainlikeanathlete #bestwaytostarttheday
Added these in at the end of my shoulder #makeitcountworkouts
I miss being on my hands and have made it a goal to get back to my more athletic side of things and be my “gymnast-y” (if that’s a thing). Honestly have had SO much fun with my training lately and has had me itching to get to the gym 💪🏼
Since my mission is to try more and new things, I need some ideas! What are some movements, workouts, or activities you enjoy that I should have a try?! Let me know below because I want to try them! 🤗

The one arm row.. a great exercise for building mass and strength in your traps, rhomboids, lats, biceps and rear shoulders.
HOW TO DO IT
Straddle the bench (both legs over the bench) instead of putting one leg on the bench. The popular way to do it is to place one leg on the bench, which is what I used to do to but by straddling the bench instead you don’t have to get nearly as wide and it takes the pressure off of the abdominals, pelvis and groin area. Having pressure in this area can potentially cause a herniation
From here place one hand to the middle of the bench. Bring your head up, bum up and out, back arched, shoulders retracted and dropped, chest up and out then pull the weight up. .
Don’t over rotate, pull the weight up and keep it controlled. You should really feel the tension being placed on your back. Your elbow should be pulled back and tucked in to help keep the tension on your lats and back. .
If you can’t control the weight by following the and you’re finding your using too much rotation or losing form the weight is is too heavy and you should drop the weight. .

Train hard, have no regrets, leave no doubt!
The weekend started off a little sweaty but a lot of fun! A Murph prep workout created by @trainerkindal
included squats, pushups, stadiums and track runs. 🏃💪
Followed up the workout with a delicious brunch at @dapschs
and some time at the beach🌊
Rise n grind ATL ☀️ Another Sunday, another chance to jump start the week. What's your go-to workout routine to prep for the week? I'm all about the stretching and a full body workout on a day like today 😎
😨Avoiding burnouts 🚔⠀
Are you one of ‘those’ people? Captain, coach and member of the league's management committee. Do you say yes to all the potluck games and just offered to host the home game after party? The last thing you want to do in your athleticism journey is burnout from too much skating and committee work. Burnout doesn’t happen after one session or after a week of planning an event. Burnout is gradual and takes weeks and months. Signs include anxiety, loss of appetite and a cynical outlook. Learning to say no is the best way to get stop and prevent burnout, so next time you’re thinking about offering to billet three members of the visiting team, set up the bout all by yourself or backfill for another team, think about what tasks someone else can talk on board and which ones you can skip out on? Your mental wellbeing is your most important asset, so if life is becoming overwhelming, reevaluate your habits. Make sure you stay happy, healthy and enjoying roller derby.
When I demonstrated this exercise today I told them to pretend to be a gecko 🦎 and a black mamba 🐍 is chasing you 🤷🏾♂️😆
Some low rate aerobic work to get BBQ ready 🇺🇸
I’ve gotten a few messages regarding rate capped training. For you lifters out there, this is the equivalent of percentage work on your big lifts, I work to maximize volume within a lower rate (24 here) to build capacity at higher rates. This allows me to accumulate good volume without hitting lactate threshold, generating more power/speed within the lower rates, and focusing on stroke refinement/efficiency. For example, if I were to row 3k straight for a time-trial I would most likely be shooting for 1:40-1:42 at a SR28, this training allows me to work at 1:37-138 at SR23-24 rather comfortably. Just like lifting, you shouldn’t be aiming to “max out” every time you hop on the erg. ———————————————————————————
Anyhoo, just trying to build that base without strength drop-off 🤷🏼♂️#operationsilverback #tryingnottobeaslob #diggingmyselfoutofthehole
När man är sjuk men får abstinensbesvär och vill träna får man testa nya saker - armhävning utan fötterna i backen? Hyffsat tungt så det räckte med en repetition åt gången 😎👊
Haven’t you heard? Being great on the weekend is the new thing. #bethebeast
Abs and legs today. 90s in my garage. At 9am. SPR sprints for conditioning this afternoon in the South Texas heat of 100 plus. #athleanx #ax
I LOVE getting outside the gym and working out outdoors! I look forward to our “Train Like An Athlete Workouts” every week with nervous excitement.
Today can be described with the 3 H's:
My legs were shaking like crazy by the end during my final set of stadiums, but once I was done I feel like a rockstar! Its amazing how a good workout can lift your spirits and make you feel on top of the world!
Today's workout? (You may or may not want to know, lol)
1 mile run
5 stadium flights of stairs
.75 mile run
4 stadium flights of stairs
.5 mile run
3 stadium flights of stairs
.25 mile run
2 stadium flights of stairs
Weighted box jumps
These are a great replacement for power cleans or hang cleans if you struggle with your form ... I still do cleans from time to time but I’ve always favored these more
