    Hi I have in home 24kg which for me is now light kettlbell and also I have and train with 32kg A+A protocol currently .S&S i do in gym with 40kg...

    But I feel that Iam stronger and comming soon I will need heavier bell and I think what is best selection for man who want train for strenght and hypertrophy :
    -buy another 32kg and train double clean &jerk/press/squat and strong dynamic snatches.

    -buy 40kg bell and train single press and Snatches
    Thankyou for your advices

    From what I’ve read here and on other sites, if hypertrophy is one of your goals, double kettlebell training is usually better than single.

    2 x 32kg = 64kg squats, cleans, jerks, presses, swings, etc.

    I’m sure there are exceptions. For example if you really enjoy doing Turkish get-ups, windmills and bent presses, then I would go with the 40kg.

    Personally, I only have a pair of 16kg and 24kg bells. I use them for practicing the clean and jerk. If I ever get serious about practicing the C&J, I will get another 32kg bell.

    Now if hypertrophy is a major concern and you have access to barbells, then that would be my vote.
