When you're keen on building muscle mass and have decided to buy some strength-training equipment that you can use at home, dumbbells will almost certainly be close to the top of your shopping list. Dumbbells of different weights can allow you to strengthen your upper body and lower body, as well as provide more resistance — and thus increase the challenge of certain cardiovascular exercises.

When you shop for dumbbells, you have a few options. One option is to buy several dumbbells in a variety of weights, for example, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 pounds. Another option is to buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells, which allow you to set your desired weight and then lift the weights from their rack to begin using them. Here are three benefits of adjustable dumbbells.

1. You'll Need Less Storage Space

A full set of dumbbells can take up a significant amount of storage space in your home, especially when you buy a rack to accommodate them. While this might not be an issue if you have a dedicated room that you're using as a home gym, not everyone has this luxury. For many home workout enthusiasts, the living room or bedroom becomes a makeshift gym, and having a large number of dumbbells sitting around can be unappealing. A major advantage of adjustable dumbbells is that they take up very little storage space.

2. You'll Be Able to Travel with Them

If you have to travel, you may be keen on keeping up with your daily workouts. When you own a pair of adjustable dumbbells, you can easily take them with you to many locations. For example, if you're visiting a friend's cottage, it won't be a hassle to take the dumbbells so that you can lift weights in the mornings. This is not something that would be feasible with a full set of weights.

3. You May Feel More Inspired

It's worthwhile to note that when you have a modern, high-end pair of adjustable dumbbells, you might feel more inspired to use them. Conversely, if you were to slowly buy a variety of individual's weights, including some that maybe don't match each other, you might not feel as keen to use them. It's important to stay motivated if you want your strength training to pay off, and a pair of adjustable dumbbells may be what you need to increase your strength at home.
