I do pull ups on a pair of wooden rings. Before this I used to use metal bars at my local park. While I don't get a torn skin (where the fingers join the palm), like when I was using the bar, any more, the bottom third of my finger now gets really depressed and the skin is pushed upwards. This really hurts while doing Pull-ups, while it didn't using a bar.
Has anyone had this happen to them? What do I do? I know I can probably wear gloves, but I don't want to sound like a wimp and would rather have my hand conditioned to handle this, considering I want to progress doing Parkour next.
I tried using Gym chalk as well, but find no difference and the pain persists.
