      Begin by gripping the rings firmly and push yourself up. Squeeze your butt and abs while pointing your toes and keeping them slightly forward of the hips. The shoulders should remain back and elbow pits forward at the top of the dip. Avoid crossing the ankles, moving into extension or bending your knees behind you.

      Turn your wrists, arms and shoulders slightly out and squeeze your butt and abs. Legs will stay straight with toes pointed all the while slightly piked as you lower under control. Elbows will be stacked neatly above wrists with the forearms approximately perpendicular. Attempt to keep the thumbs out, belly tight, back flat and the shoulders pulled back tightly.

      After reaching the bottom drive up and re-establish a good ring dip support position and begin again. Don’t lose tension in your belly or shoulders at the bottom or during the drive up.
