If you have a smaller collection of lighter dumbbells, you can get a shorter rack more compact rack, or the most space-saving rack, the “A” frame dumbbell rack.
How Many and How Heavy are Your Dumbbells?
Before you pick out a dumbbell rack, consider how many pairs of dumbbells you have and how heavy each dumbbell is. Lighter weight compact racks may not hold 50 or 80 lbs dumbbells, nor will they fit a complete set of dumbbells.
On the other hand, you may not need a heavy-duty rack or high capacity rack if you just have 4 or 5 pairs of dumbbells lighter than 20 lbs.
I have divided this list of dumbbell rack reviews up into home gym racks, dumbbell racks with dumbbells included and heavy-duty, high capacity racks so you can find exactly the dumbbell rack you need.
