Rings, more commonly known as gym rings or gymnastic rings are gymnastic apparatus consisting of two circular rings fixed with tension between an overhead beam and two arms which are gripped by the gymnast while performing different exercises. Gymnasts wore these rings on their fingers because they prevented them from slipping during a strenuous routine. There are different exercises which require the use of rings, for example, hanging kettlebells and pull ups. Rowing machines and rowing stations are other popular uses of gym rings.
Gymnastics rings are made out of a variety of materials, the most common being gold, brass, stainless steel and aluminum. There are three types of rings: equinox, half moon and full moon. Equinox rings have two circular handles and are usually made up of 18k white gold or platinum. The full moon rings have one handle and can be either gold plated or sterling silver.
Full moon rings can be used for fingerless gloves, although many gymnasts prefer not to wear them due to finger dexterity problems with the fingers. The full moon ring has two circular handles and are a lot heavier and clumsier than the equinox rings. Because of their weight and increased friction the full moon ring produces considerably less torque than the equinox. The full moon ring can produce torque of four bars, which is more than enough to train the muscles in your arm and shoulder.
In contrast to the full moon rings which are made up of heavy gold plated metals, the equinox rings are made up of only two pieces of gold plating. This makes the ring lighter than the full moon rings. Equinox has the advantage that it can be repainted unlike the full moon rings which need a special process to get them back to their original color. The silver coating of the equinox can also be cleaned to give it a good shine.
In addition to the differences between the full moon and the equinox, there are a few other differences as well. The moon rings tend to have a small number of pointed ends, while the equinox have round shaped tips. Both rings tend to have a small number of pronounced facets. The moon rings have also been found to be made of a variety of gemstones including amethyst, black onyx, blue topaz, white quartz and pink sapphire.
While the rings are designed to look like the moon, it is important to realize that they are actually made up of many different types of moon particles. Each type of ring particle is designed to reflect light in a certain way. This means that if you look at the moon it is possible to see the various particles floating around in the space. This is why it is possible to purchase moon jewelry.
