    can you get bigger using dumbbells.

    all i have are 15 and 20 pound dumbbells, and i can but heavier ones, but i dont really have access to a gym. im working on losing the fat now, but will i be able to get bigger using just dumbbells and sit ups, push ups, leg raises, etc??? or is gym equipment necessary??

    of course you can get bigger using Dumbells but id at least get a bench for now and the weights that you said you use prolly wont do much but save money or what ever and start getting stuff little by little.Thats what ive been doing and i got quite a bit of stuff now.

    You will get bigger eventually but in the future it will be hard to work with those dumbells so youll have to superset like crazy to estimulate grow.

    i hope the people saying 'you can't get big with dumbbells' are being sarcastic...

    There are advanced theories such as fast twitch stimulation, overall workout loads, dropsets, supersets, (insert anything)sets all to get big muscles, but the underlying principle is that you stimulate the muscle, this can be done using nothing but your body.

    Think of an olympic gymnast, they dont touch weights at all yet their upper bodies are massive, or martial artists, they're in the same boat.

    And before anyone rebuttles me saying that weights are necessary, do a superset of hercules pushups (the handstand ones) and dragon flags first.

    IMO Dumbell works the chest better than barbell. I stopped DB benching for 2 weeks, and started BB benching and my chest feels weaker than before. DB also makes me feel the workout more. But to get a good dumbell workout, you're gonna need heavy dumbells.

    you can get big with dumbbels but the problem with them is, there is only a certain point where you can add weights. Supposedly the best way to get big biceps and improve growth quicker is supersetting you bicep routine (1 workout ofter another I.E concentration curls with hammer curls one after another). with triceps the best way to simulate growth quicker is tri-sets where you peform 3 exercises one after another. if you do purchase urself a BB then it can be took to a new level the main thing with bb is obviously there is more weight to add. you can do chest, shoulder presses, back, legs. so you can get as big as you want with a BB. So yes you can do anything with a BB also dnt forgett to incorperate body weight exercises like pushups etc to you routine as it will add strength and development. Im on a bulk right now and i workout at home all i have for equipment is a bench with a barbell, resistant band, stability ball, dumbells, and 3 kettlebells............

    Big people don't lift small weight.

    You can lose fat fine, but adding muscle and strength will be much harder than it has.to be

    strong bump

    bottom line is that you can get big without even lifting. eating a surplus is all that is required. there are a bunch of fatties that prove this

    you can only get so strong with dumbells or bodyweight exercise. if you don't increase resistance, you won't get any stronger
    Goals:

    1.5 bw Bench
    2.0+ bw Squat
    2.5 bw Deadlift
    Gain 20 lbs

    As far as legs just google how to do dumbbell squats and dumbbell dead lifts, and for calves just hold the dumbbells and raise on your toes and back down (i forget what this exercise is called) i prefer to do most exercises with dumbbells or kettlebell because i feel it gives me more movement when working out.

    Well sooner or later (you might even be right now) you will be able to throw around those weights like feathers and you won't be able to see any strength or mass gains. You need to be able to lift heavier and heavier to keep gaining mass. Staying at same weight won't do chit man
