With regards to the numbness in your forearms, I think it would be the OHS causing this. The more you practice these the more comfortable they will become.

Using the rings will make you more accostumed to them. When I first got mine I used them for all pullups and dips. Even if it made the WOD take longer to perform. My motivation was to be able to do a Muscle up as soon as possible. If this is the case for you, practice you false grip as well.

For HSPUs, elevated push ups are a logical place to start. Start with feet elevated as high as possible while maintaining perfect form. When the height you started at gets comfortable increase it. Go slow and stay injury free.

Welcome to the team.
