Buy another 24kg Kb or go to 32kg?

Hello,

I have a 24kg kettlebell that I can clean and press 15-20 times. The question is should I now go for another 24 and build up so I can press both at the same time for 20 reps or go for the 32kg kettlebell.

My goals are more to do with general health and fitness and getting strong rather than competition specific. However I do like the occasional adventure race!

Thanks

Depends if budget is an issue. If it isn't, get the 24. If it is, go for the 32.

Also depends on whether or not your goals include being strong/adept with dual 24kg bells. If your goal is to just get generally stronger & more fit, personally I'd go for the 32kg.

Another vote for more weight. Having pairs would be something I'd do to complete my set, rather than initial build out.
28kg also exists too - if worried about the jump to 2pd.

I concur.

Progress to the 28 kg, then jump to the 32.
