    As said you may be gripping to hard instead of hooking it with your hands.
    Another issue may be the kettlebell handle itself.
    Some brands have a rough and sometimes uneven handle which can cause the hands to get torn up doing a ballistic exercises.

I am using the 16kg kbs for KB Muscle. I could do up to 4 ladders (1,2,3,4) of the military press with the 24kg kb, and even with the 16kg, KB Muscle is very challenging...
    Thank you, it was what I figured then, I won't be starting KB Muscle anytime soon, I still need a lot of time to get used to KBs!

    It took me a week to decide what KB I should get.

    Living in France, I couldn't go out and buy one, since I'm sure most people here never even heard of KBs and the people I know (from a french forum) who HAVE heard of them use them for curling (lol). France is still very behind in bodybuilding.

    I had to order, and I figured I should go ahead and order the best = Dragon Door :P

    So I'm sure it's not the handle but like I said before, I used to do a lot of DB swings/snatches so you're right, I may also be gripping the handle too hard.

    Here's a great article to give you some points to work on with the snatch for protecting your hands. I'm still working out the kinks too and haven't mastered the technique yet, but I've definitely had enough good reps and "aha" moments to where I now see what he's talking about and know what it should feel like. One of the best, most descriptive articles I've read (great job Jordan!) - I highly recommend it.

    Fwiw, KB Muscle is a fairly advanced program. Buy the book, it's fantastic, but spend some time on the program minimum and then the ROP program before delving into Geoff's magic.
