    Keep it. Do more one hand swings than two hand swings, and get really good at snatches. And if it is that light, you should switch over to the ROP program and get 5 x 1,2,3,4,5 in the clean and press. That probably won't take you very long.

    But in the few weeks you are doing that, just save up your money so you can bypass the 20kg and get a 24kg. If the 16 is light for you, it won't be long at all before the 20 is light, too. So my advice would be to take a little time to get good with the 16 (since you got it, and if it is really light just supplement with your barbell) and then jump up to the 24.

    Thanks guys... I think I'm gonna stick with my 16kg

    The one arm swings suggestion is a good one! Btw, I went to a local sports shop and clean & pressed a 50lb wanna-be kettlebell a couple of times. So maybe I'll be able to jump from 16kg to 24kg (eventually) and skip 20kg.

    Thanks again comrads!

    This is a little off topic, but I was wondering, would it be a better idea to progress to a double 16kg workout or would it be better to wait and go single 24kg?

    Obviously, my TGU's will not benefit from this but everything else would and I could even do double 16kg front squats.

    wait until you've completed ETK...or at least had about a year of KB work under your belt before going to doubles.

    I'm a little confused. You say you can press 240lbs? Do you mean shoulder press or bench press? If you can shoulder press 240lbs, then the 16kg is probably too light for your presses too (as well as the 20kg).

    Sorry for not specifying... it's my max bench press. I know I can shoulder press atleast 50lbs on each arm but probably just once or twice.

    Completing ETK means you can military press a kettlebell that is close to 1/2 your bodyweight and can also do 200 snatches in 10 minutes with a 24kg bell.

    I just read this. You also have the option of doing dbl squats with offset bells. Nothing wrong with using a 16K and a 24K, you can alternate hands each set.
