    i find that a lot of people don’t have training partners, so for me…
    training chest strength on a barbell press is not a good idea as you are
    fucked if you go too heavy, wheras with dumbbell i have never had a problem
    lifting for a 4 rep set, i can reach actual falure… on barbell if i’m
    unsure whether or not i can make the next rep… i cannot take that risk,
    unlike dumbbell where you just drop the weight

    not only that, but the reason you can’t quite go as heavy is because there
    is more work needed from the CNS to recruit the fibres to keep the weight
    balanced as you press it up, so while the muscle may not quite be lifting
    as heavy, it is actually working harder than it would equal weights on
    barbell…. of course though… don’t abandon one over the other, still mix
    it up. keep the muscles guessing.

      I agree haha. though my gym has 5 squat racks so it wouldn’t be a biggie.
      usually only the squat rack with deadlift podium is in use. it’s usually
      pretty quiet at lunch so there’s not many people about.

      +John Kimble its just that its is not practice form is bad it dont transfer
      to daily activities

      +Batman muscles can only get bigger or smaller. you cant change the shape

    • DOBBY THE SLUT / August 1, 2016

      however bench press feels better lmao. At the end of the day both are going
      to get you a bigger chest so who really cares

    I have a massive chest and I rarely use dumbels

    • Random Longman / February 3, 2016

      +FuckPunkers i only have chest coz i only do push up, damn, it looks like
      woman

    • Ray Flo / May 22, 2016

      you prolly flare your elbows? ive made good gainz strictly barbell as well

  7. eric liu / February 2, 2016

    I feel much more stimulation from the barbell than from dumbbells on my
    chest. Mostly because it’s easier to stabilize the barbell

  8. louis santiago / February 18, 2016

    I definitely feel more pec involvement with dumbells without a doubt.

    What about if youre in situation where your only options are: smith machine
    or dumbbells?

    • SL4VE0WNER1904619 / March 18, 2016

      +Three points Veteran Scars then you should find a new gym lol.

    • Three points Veteran Scars / March 18, 2016

      Yup that is the best thing to do, agree on that

    moving on, back to the topic, hi??

  11. Kal Heisenberg / April 8, 2016

    for best results I always alternate both. I train my chest twice a week,
    Day 1: barbell bench press, dumbbell incline. Day 2: dumbbell bench/barbell
    incline.

    this chick talks too much smack yo

    Nice, this is what I’ve been doing before watching this. Last thing is that
    it takes time and a lot of work. Your chest isn’t going to increase in size
    in a day with some magic exercise or dumbbells vs barbell. Lift everything
    from every angle as long as it maintains joint stability.

  15. Dumbbells Only / May 27, 2016

    I do both but I focus on DB. It’s good to just include both however I can
    honestly say when j made the trasnstistion from more sets on BB to more
    sets on DB I saw more results on my chest. However what I do is hit flat
    BB twice a week so I can still increase there to compensate for my focus on
    DB.

    that’s why a lot of gym goers don’t get great pecs..they just worry too
    much about potential accidents that might occur when lifting heavier
    dumbells and therefore miss out on major gains

    nice cleavage

    People say you can’t go by soreness, but when I do barbell bench press I
    get super sore but not with dumbells. To me that means my chest is
    stimulated more with barbell. May be wrong.
