Ring Training: False Grip
Posted 14 February 2008 - 09:56 AM
Is this just a technique problem, or am I just too fat and too weak?
I've scoured the 'web for help, but it seems to indicate that it should be 'easy'.

I was advised to "look for the pain" in the false grip-make sure the ring is sitting on the bone inside the wrist-if it hurts like hell and you get blisters you're getting there
Yup...and I was at the same Ring Training Masterclass
Funny you should post this Matt - I was having similar frustrations...'till yesterday - was 'greasing the groove' with ring pull-ups all night, lol.
Something clicked, and my grip felt a lot more 'stable'.
Wrists are red and a little sore
That's the thing though - for me, I think I previously did not have enough of the ring on my wrist, if that makes sense. Easy mistake to make Now it is properly resting there, which I have found in itself helps to form a wee "v"-shape between your wrist and your palm and keep the grip in place. Perhaps a similar issue with you?
Also, are you using chalk? Might give you a hand

It can be pretty painful and if I'm doing a wod with multiple mu I'll wear sweat bands to stop the blisters

its the one thing i'm missing at cfws is room for muscle ups-we're ok for overhead work but not high enough for the mu-
But you've got a pull up bar right? can you not hang the rings from there?
