dumbells or bar/machines?
Whats better for your body? doing exercises like incline and normal bench press with dumbells or using a bar or free weight machines?
Right now I do 50 pound dumbell for incline and normal bench press, 3 sets of 8... does this mean if i go to the bar i will be able to do 45's on each side? I know bar weights like 15 pounds but i doubt it will make too much of a difference.. any advice? and my friend told me to do use those machines with ur bar attached to the machine so when u turn ur hands it locks the weight... he said its the same as free weights... are free weights better or are the two the same? thanks
Personally, I almost never do the machines, since they do large muscles only. IMO that gives big muscles that look pretty but don't do anything. I'll try to get a balance between exercises with a bar and with a dumbell.
Do a little of each from time to time. Muscles respond to different exercises. Keep the muscle guessing:D Free-weights should be the base of your workouts though
