    the shoulders are not an area that needs much work because they are already blasted on just about every upper body compound movement

    I do more barbell because it's a strong man lift, but dumbbells will work more stabilizer muscles

    I prefer db shoulder presses. You get a better center of gravity and hit them better. Barbell will have you out forward more

    Re: Dumbbell Shoulder Press vs. Barbell Shoulder Press

    Dumbbells force more work from the muscle and surrounding muscle as you need to stabilize each dumbbell vs the single large barbell.

    Both are good and both should be incorporated into a training routine

    Dumbbell is a good exercise if you are doing with good body posture.

    I prefer dells uses more stabilizers, you can adjust your hand pos, rom and lots of other variables to suit your needs incase you have nagging injuries or whatever.
    They also make the muscle work independently and you get a better contraction as well.
