For those who need an in-between weight while transitioning from 24kg to 32kg, which do you prefer? 28kg seems more commonly available, is it worth looking into 26kg or 30kg? Thanks!
What lift is it you're transitioning from the 24 to the 32? Swing? Get Up? Press? Clean? Snatch? To be honest, the "in between" sizes bug me. For the guys, bumping up in 4k increments requires that you "own" that size before you move up and therefore it's the desirable choice for me, especially if you can already press the 24. I let my male students use in between sizes if they can't press the 24. If they can, they need to move up in 4k bumps. For the ladies, I think the in between sizes are very helpful, especially for the press and snatch.For those who need an in-between weight while transitioning from 24kg to 32kg, which do you prefer? 28kg seems more commonly available, is it worth looking into 26kg or 30kg?

I started with a 24, jumped to a 32 when it was time to progress on Simple and Sinister, then a 20 to start ROP (which I quickly outgrew) and then a 28 when I was ready to incorporate it into ROP. (I knew 24 to 32 on the press was too big of a jump.)To the advocates of 28s, were these your next step up from 24s? Or did some of you get one or two despite already being proficient in single or doubles work with 32s? As a big fan of doubles I’m thinking two 28s could add lots of options.
