    I prefer barbell, because I'm into the whole powerlifting scene. Dumbells will trigger more muscle fibers and stabilizers for sure, though. That all said, don't pick one or the other. Do both.

    I have always stuck to all of the above plus hammer strength too for chest.. but in the end it will boil down to genetics how good results you get. my chest blew up like crazy as a teenager thanks to good genetics

    I would incorporate both lifts. The more different techniques the better for significant gains.

    You should incorporate both along with machines. That is optimal
