A Straddled Planche on Rings is a static hold position that is as much a strength element as it is a balance element. While the concept of holding this position on the rings is the same as holding it elsewhere, the instability of the rings makes this skill slightly more challenging. For best results, straddle the legs as wide as possible so that the weight of the legs are shifted as close to the center of mass as possible. Additionally, utilize your body as a lever and lean the body forward until you feel the balance point. Strengthening the balance point is the key to holding this position.
