    BB vs DB

    I think this is one of the great controverses in bodybuilding and strength gains. I need to know which one i need to fouces on for size. And if you know the weight and reps i should do that would be cool as well in tryin to get that Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger chest.
    Stats:
    Bp:225x10
    Incline:175x7
    Decline:225x15
    Weight:185-190
    O and a big ass head.

    BB = mass

    My arms always fatigue early with dumbbells.

    Can control the contraction of my chest / general movement more with barbell bench press

    I'm going to go build my pecs up with BB bench press then shape them doing DB flies and cable movements. Maybe I'll throw on a blindfold too to cause muscle confusion.

    You said that db can work on "shape" of a muscle. this is incorrect as shape is genetic.

    Yea well spidey told me he talked to a guy at the gym and barbell builds more mass. So it must be true.

    In reality, chest, like any other muscle, needs its ass kicked many different ways.
    You need barbell incline, flat, and decline.
    And dumbbell incline, flat, and decline
    As well as flies/flys however the hell you spell it for incline, flat, and decline as well.
    Plus if you do it this way you can cut a large part out of your shoulder day due to the compund you will be getting.

    But he has results so it is obviously working for him. There isn't one exercise that is optimal for everyone dumbass, barbell is better for chest mass.

    In my experience, DB is significantly better. It uses more stabilizing muscles, you don't need a spotter (if you aren't retarded), and you can still get great results from it. I've also never plateau'd with DB Bench, but have with BB Bench in the past.

    Currently DB Benching two 110lb DBs 4x6ish.

    No no no...
    BB = Strength&Mass
    DB = Mass&Shape

    IMO your at a pretty good point to focus on dumbbells if muscular hypertrophy is your goal.

    Lulz. Before I neg, humour me to make me not do so: explain to me why I've gained strength doing DB Bench when it only does mass and shape. And why I hit a strength plateau with BB when it supposedly does strength and mass.
