Hand rips are totally avoidable! On pull-up and TTB workouts, protect your hands with tape or gymnastics wraps. A ripped hand will negatively affect your training for several days after, so take care of your mitts!
THIS ARTICLE from Tabata Times gives tips and tricks for hand care and also treatment in case you do rip. Pay close attention to the video that teaches you to make tape wraps. Make a pair and use then (and reuse them) on pull-up and TTB WODs.
