    Barbell because it's a higher number and it's more popular, boosting your confidence and desirability.

    barbell when plateau'ed
    dumbbell otherwise

    dumbbells allow for a better ROM and have a better stimulus:fatigue ratio
    barbell allows you to progressive overload easier

    No skin in this race, I stopped benching once I hit 3pl8 and realized it was giving me big breasts and not growing my arms at all

        I was a grooming victim of powerfats, they told me a big bench would give me big arms and I believed them

    Dumbbell is better for giving chest size. Barbell is better for giving shoulder injuries.

      I can't do barbell because I don't have a setup for it, but I do think dumbbells can get you into snap city much easier once you get up to a certain weight. I've had more close calls than I'd care to admit with 85+lb dumbbells that I can easily bench for 8-12reps once they're in position, but getting them into position, and to a lesser degree out, doesn't leave much room for error.

    barbell:
    >more triceps due to lateral force transfer
    >higher pec load due to lower stability demands
    >can easily load very high weights
    dumbbell:
    >less triceps, more pecs
    >easier on the shoulder joint due to adjustable rotation angle
    >can go as deep as you want
    >higher stability demands, limiting pec load
    >difficult to get into position, especially with heavy weights
    in conclusion: both are similarly effective for increasing pec size.

    Dumbbells because I’m DYEL and all the big scary guys are always hanging out 5-10 people around the barbell. Every day. Every hour. Even at 9 AM opening time of the gym or 8 PM closing time. It’s like when one crew disappears a new crew replaces them.

    Im not picking one or the other. They are both part of my routine. Sometimes I alternate every week, sometimes I do dumbbells for 3 months, then barbell for 3 months. For hypertrophy, strength and plateau reasons. Dumbbells are easier to perform on a cut, the weight matters less and I get a better stimulus.

    Barbell is more fun when on a gaining phase, better for strength and sometimes just fun to lift heavy and impress normies. Nobody has ever looked or said anything to me for using 40-50kg dumbbells but when I bench 3pl8 people unironically take a video and go for fist bumps lol. Im not a powersharter so its basically double my bodyweight and they are just surprised I guess.

    I workout in my home gym, alone, at night, after my family goes to bed. I use dumb bells, because, God forbid I make a mistake, I'd rather just break my floor than have my family wake up to find me dead with a broken neck or rib cage.

    Barbell because it's easier to overload since it's simpler to spot.

    Machine press is better. Especially a Nautilus or Hammer Strength press.
