Build Your Own Rings
Today we build CrossFit rings to add to our CrossFit Equipment inventory!! Above is a picture of what you will need.
16 – 1/2″ 45 degree elbow joints
1 – 5′ PVC pipe 1/2″ diameter
1 roll of gorilla tape
1 can of PVC cement
3 canisters of heavy duty liquid nails (optional)
-Cut 16, 2″ pieces of PVC off of your long PVC pipe.
-Put PVC cement on the inside of a 45 degree elbow joint and on the end of one of you 2″ pieces.
-Build the rings into halves that look like this.
Optional Instructions: (I prefer all my homemade CrossFit Equipment to be as sturdy as possible)
-Fill the inside of each half with heavy duty liquid nails and let dry for 10 minutes.
-Put the two halves together with PVC cement, let dry for 20 minutes
-Wrap Gorilla Tape around all the connections, then around the rest of the ring.
Now you have your own CrossFit Rings and your crossfit equipment is growing!!!
I connect mine to tie down straps used for trucks (the big ones that can be cranked down for different lengths).
They work great! Now go get some muscle ups!!
