^ OHHHH SHIT!

Obviously DB press is gunna lack in comparison to BB press. I've been able to bench 300+ for a while now, but pretty sure if I tried 140 lb dumbbells my arms would tear off.

Update: Squatted yesterday without platforms, did 3 sets of 3 @ 275. I thought I would have had to start from scratch, but i'm caught up now! I found squatting without the platforms really slows me down and makes me focus on form, whereas before I would just drop down and use my momentum to push myself back up.

My long lanky arms is my excuse for a shitty bench press. DB press is a lot easier for me

When I was younger I got up to 2 plates bench. Now 8 years later im having trouble doing 60 on each side. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I blame no spotter, and the clicking sound in my shoulder.

But yea, db's are easier for me.

Does the chest get the same workout from flat db or bench? Is there an advantage for either?

both have their place

i do incline dumbells but ive been maxed out at my gyms dumbells (100lbs) for like 2 years haha. my BB bench maxed out at like 290 a few months ago but has fallen off for the summer (most things have).


i think i like incline BB bench the most. best pump, best growth, and i think it helps strength in flat bench alot too.

With my rotator injury I just tried lat pull downs for the first time in 8 months. I went fairly light at 130lbs. WOW, so bloody sore. I've never felt my lats like that before. In the past I must have just been using my arms before because I really focused on my form this time around and felt the burn immediately afterwards. Finally!

ya man. its hard to explain but instead of pulling your hands down, focus on pulling your arms down and back a little. when you focus on pulling your elbows down, it makes you use your back instead of your arms. hard to explain but when you get the feel for it you understand.

like pretend you had no forearms or hands and had the bar tied to your elbows

^ LOL! sorry bro, but he's right.
I do see a difference, upper backs looking more full, but it could just be all swoll from pre-workout / freshly out of the gym.
Do a few months worth of dumbell/ t-bar/cable rows (alternate between wide/close grip) tons of widegrip PULLUPS (pulldowns are for fat kids), back flies & bat wings (skinnypup posted a few months ago) and your upper back will pick up nicely.
