You are calling 2kg jumps “in between” sizes, but the old school folks consider (or used to consider) 20kg, 28kg, 36kg the “in between” sizes. In other words, 4kg jumps from the standard 16/24/32 sizes.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.
IMO, the 28 is a great size bell for many things: cleans, presses, snatches, renegade rows...you get the idea. I recommend you get one (or better yet, two).
Stay strong, my friend!
I agree with you and think 2kg jumps aren’t needed for the most part but I disagree with the sentiment that having just a, say, 24 and a 32 is a positive thing.
