    Question about dumbell work vs. Olympic Bar work

    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.
