You use adjustable dumbbells if your fitness goal is increasing muscle mass or if you plan to do a lot of different exercises during your workout.

Which one?
So in the end should you choose fixed or adjustable dumbbells? Fixed for greatest flexibility and longevity at the expense of space. Threaded collar adjustable dumbbells are the cheapest option but that comes at the expense of user comfort. Selectorized adjustable is great for space saving and a tidy look but isn’t the sturdiest option. Choose which one fits your needs the best.

Weight range of dumbbells for a home gym

Most models of dumbbells have a range that goes from 5lbs to 60 lbs. with 5lbs. increments. For some stronger people under us, 60lbs. isn’t enough. If that’s you and you don’t like different types of dumbbells in your rack, it’s something to pay attention to.

Dumbbells less than 5lbs are usually a different type anyways so it’s difficult to avoid a different look with the lightest dumbbells.

Do you need all weights of dumbbells?

No, you don’t need all of them at the same time. But over an extended period of time, you’ll need almost all of the dumbbells in a range of 5 to +-60 pounds. Because you’ll use different weights for different exercises. But you’ll also get stronger, meaning you’ll need all of those starting weights and the one or two weights above your starting point in just a few months’ time.
