Dumbbell vs. barbell


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Dumbbell vs. barbell within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I've been training for 5 years off and on and I have noticed a difference between using dumbbells and barbells in terms of what muscles get worth and how they get worked.

    I like dumbells more, they give me more control
    barbell hurts my shoulder especially in bench press

    Re: Dumbbell vs. barbell

    i like barbells for standing curls just to get a nice pump in my biceps and forearms.

    i like dumbbells too for chest pressing exercises.

    so they both are important. also flat olympic bar are important too. i would reverse that order for importance

    I like both but I a love the db for more of an isolation on the muscle being worked . I feel I get more of a pump out of it.
