INTRODUCTION A sincere thanks for purchasing the Body By Rings (BBR) training program. I’d like to acknowledge you for investing time, effort and money into this unique method. BBR is the culmination of over 6 years of experimentation, research and countless hours of training. The program has been designed to address all aspects of hypertrophy development through the use of bodyweight exercises, no bullshit and no superfluous exercises or false promises. BBR is the only comprehensive bodyweight bodybuilding program utilising gymnastic rings as of 2015. Read this guide thoroughly and study the videos provided.

Concepts are discussed in BWE which will serve you well for BBR and into the future. It’s logical to be able to perform bodyweight movements competently on a stable environment prior to undertaking the added challenge of instability associated with gymnastic rings. Most people will adjust to the instability experienced when using rings in a few weeks, so don’t fear. The exercise intensity in BBR can be easily increased or decreased to suit varying strength levels. This is made possible by simply changing post
