I feel like I’m going all Raymond Calitri here:
“Metal is cold…ugly. Wood is warm…clean…provided by nature.”
I would have thought it crazy, but a fictional character is a great, bad action flick is right. Ryan Hurst at GMB talks about this in a podcast but wood just feels better for the sake of doing bodyweight type training. It’s also harder (when it comes to rings) to do right, so you can’t screw around and muscle your way through it. You have to abide.
