Set-up: Position gymnastic rings behind you and a bench in front of you. Adjust the height of the rings to make the exercise more or less challenging (higher will be easier, lower harder). Place your hands onto the rings and extend your legs straight in front of you onto the bench.
Lift: Begin the exercise with arms extended and descend until your upper arms are nearly parallel to the floor.
Emphasis: Only descend to parallel or beyond if there is no inappropriate strain in the shoulders. Do not lock your elbows at the end of the movement.
