photos of gymnastics RIPS

RipGuardian has a Facebook page. They’re asking for pics of the worst hand rips you’ve ever seen.

Search for RipGuardian on Facebook.

A great quote from theamazingjaide, a Level 6 gymnast who simply cannot get used to hand guards on bars: “get grips or get rips”

Something strangely sadistic about a facebook group to celebrate the worst rips! haha!

You still rip with grips, you know. It’s not an either or situation.

Right, TP.

It should be, “get grips or get MORE rips”

Thanks for the shutout to our Facebook page. If anyone is interested in trying RipGuardian let me know. We’ve had all positive feedback and have helped gymnasts with rips to stay on bars (without pain).

Good luck with the rips,
