If there's one piece of gym equipment you should have in your home gym, it should be dumbbells.

“There’s a reason dumbbells are in every single big-box gym,” says MH fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S., who created an arm-focused muscle-building program, All Out Arms, based heavily around dumbbells. “If you want targeted muscle—and that’s what all guys want—then you want dumbbells.”

Even if you don't have an official home gym or workout space, the great thing about dumbbells is that they require little space—just as long as you're only working with one single pair of weights. That's easy if you invest in an adjustable set, which can shift from light to heavy with a quick turn of a knob or shift of a setting.

"When you're working out at home, space becomes your biggest challenge. You probably don't have enough room for an entire rack full of dumbbells (let alone the budget to buy an entire set of weights), so your best option is most likely going to be getting that whole rack in one set," says Brett Williams, NASM-CPT certified trainer and fitness editor at Men's Health. "Everything becomes simpler with these adjustable sets—from swapping in lighter and heavier weights mid-workout to storing your stuff when you're done."

And with a pair of adjustable dumbbells, you can take your training to the next level without stepping foot in a gym, while also minimizing the amount of equipment you need. Just one adjustable dumbbell can replace up to 15 weights. Now that's what we call efficiency.

We rounded up some of the best adjustable dumbbells on the market (that are still in stock) to help you stay fit and strong while training at home.
