I normally find grip to be one of the most limiting things in ring training. i'm now thinkin about buying another set of rings and wrapping one of my pairs up with some material to make it much thicker. anybody had experience with something like this?

You want support grip type work. Farmers walks or that or anything similar is going to help significantly.

i'd like to work on ring swings as well, but it's not gonna work on my home rings. are real gymnastic rings the only trustworthy ones to swing on? i thought about looping rope or something since for a while i'd just focus on the low portion of the swing.
I would personally not swing on anything except real rings.... not very safe to swing on any of the ones you can buy online for cheap. Most of the sellers even say this.
