I've had several people tell me that using dumbells for chest work (Ie. Dumbell bench, incline Dumbell, dumbell fly's etc.) is much better than standard chest work with an olympic bar.
I continue to try doing dumbell work but I always end up frustrated because my Tri's always fail before anything else. I don't understand how it is benefitting my chest if another part of my body (Tri's) are forcing me to quit early.
So my questioin is really two-fold:
1. Is there any truth to Dumbells being better or is it more of an old wives tale (so to speak).
2. How am I getting any benefit if my tri's keep causing problems forcing me to curtail my set work or go down in weight?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
