XMARK Heavy Duty Dumbbell Rack PLUS Dumbbells review


is a popular fitness equipment manufacturer that dominates the market with their high-quality, reasonably priced gear. This extensive heavy-duty dumbbell set can be a great addition to any home gym. It comes with a wide range of weight sizes and the DBs themselves are made out of tough materials, so you won’t have to worry about damaging the weights if they get tossed around during an intense workout.

Beginners often have a hard time finding the right dumbbell weight to start using. Often, they’ll either use a weight that’s too light to provide results or a weight that’s too heavy to really work with.

If you’re a beginner or a seasoned lifter and you’re into shredding and opting for a cut physique instead of bulking, then this is the set for you.

Want a real workout? Try doing a few sets of preacher curls or regular DB curls with a fifty-pound dumbbell. You’ll definitely be sore the next day.

Shredding combined with carb cycling is what’s in now in the fitness world. And believe it or not, this type of diet and meal plan is more challenging than bulking. When you bulk you focus on lifting more weight with shorter sets. When you’re shredding you’ll want to lift with a moderate amount of weight and do as many reps as you can until failure.

Failure meaning you’re unable to safely lift the weight using the correct form. So, weight ranging from five to fifty pounds is perfect.

Instead of lining your DBs against the wall in your garage or workout room, this set comes with a free weight rack, so you can keep your weights neatly organized until you’re ready to use them.

XMark Adjusta These adjustable dumbbells come in 25 and 50 pound sets.

Made from solid steel, and standing 33 inches tall and 36 inches wide, the Marcy three-level rack is a very solid piece of furniture.

It’s rated to hold 800 pounds, though if you’re working on those high levels, you’re unlikely to squeeze more than a dozen dumbbells on there anyway, so it’s unlikely that you’ll overload the thing.

The rack can accommodate multiple sizes, so you can get more small dumbbells on the rack, but if you’re working with large weights, assume you’re going to get no more than 12 on each rack.

The CAP small dumbbell rack will take a lot less space than, for instance, the Marcy, and is designed for smaller, rubber or neoprene dumbbells.  It will hold five pairs of dumbbells, with a maximum weight of 200 pounds, so you’re probably looking at 5-25 pounds in five-pound increments.

It’s pretty cheap, which is both a pro and a con%u2014it’s probably one of the most inexpensive ways to hold your dumbbells short of just stacking them on the floor. If you only have a small set of weights, this is a perfect way to store them. It’s easy to assemble as well.

It is advisable to ensure you can actually fit all of your weights onto one rack and you might even need to consider buying two racks to fit all the dumbbells. This is common in most gyms and you should make sure you have enough room in your home for all of your weights.

The goal is to organize your workout space better and this is why you may need and extra weight rack. In the end, the more weights you have the more complex your workouts can become.

A good weight rack should also be movable. In time, you might want to rearrange your weight room and you should consider a rack which can be easily placed against any wall and which doesn`t require any floor anchoring.

You would find other features might be a priority for your own fitness goals. However, construction, versatility, and design should be a good starting point for any long-term purchase.

A weight rack is not one of those purchases which are upgradable; thus, it becomes important to choose the right one from the start. Steel construction is obviously a sign of endurance, but you may also want to consider that steel is prone to rust.

If you sweat a lot, you may need to consider cleaning your dumbbells after each use to prolong the life of the rack.

Although construction is the main strength of a good rack, most users will need a versatile product which can fit a complete set of weights. This means focusing on the right product for your set of weights or purchasing a full dumbbell set with the rack.

Choosing a sturdy weight rack, which comes with decent versatility, for your cast iron and neoprene weights, should be made with a design pattern in mind.

Although you wouldn`t normally consider design as a top feature of a weight rack, you can simplify the process by picturing how the product will fit into your weight room.

User Reviews

Review 1

If you’re looking for a small and budget-friendly dumbbell rack, you’re much better going off with this one from Marcy.  It’s 27 inches by 21 inches, so a little bit longer than the CAP but not as bulky as the three-level rack.

It has room for eight dumbbells on the side, and then quite a few more on the top and bottom; if you’re using smaller weights, you could easily fit 20 on this rack. I’d say it could hold about 400 pounds without any problems; if your total dumbbell weight is too much higher than that, I might spring for a sturdier frame.

Review 2 

The complaints I have are relatively minor.

I’ve also heard some people having problems with the bolts not lining up properly, but that wasn’t a problem with mine%u2014it took less than 20 minutes from unboxing until it was ready to use.

It’s sturdy and solid%u2014if you want to splurge for a slightly larger rack to hold a complete set, I would definitely recommend the Body Solid model.

Weight racks come in all shapes and sizes.

A weight rack should be as simple as possible while maintaining the robustness needed for all of the weights. Most commercial racks use steel construction with some manufacturers putting an emphasis on thickness and robustness.

Steel gauge can vary from 3 to 36 and it refers to the thickness of the material. This is important, as the thickness of the frame will dictate the resistance of the weight rack in time.

Most importantly, a solidly built weight rack will guarantee you are safe while working out. You want to make sure you get the safest rack within your budget to keep you or other users injury-free.

Review 3

If you plan to use lower weights or have family members which might be using them, you need to consider neoprene weights storage.

As they are smaller in size, the weight needs a specific tier design. But the design also applies to the weights.
