If you're interested in obtaining upper level rings strength you should learn it supinated. The transference to rings handstands, iron cross, floor/parallette/rings planche, maltese, and inverted cross is very applicable -- the strength needs to be developed to help protect the elbows later on.

If it's too much on the elbows/shoulders right away do some work with german hangs.

If you don't care about anything beyond back lever and front lever then I would just leave it as is...
