Dumbbell bench vs barbell bench

Bench press exercises with a barbell or dumbbells are performed a little differently due to differing hand placement and range of motion. You can lift more weight with a barbell because you don't have work to stabilize each hand independently. With greater loads you can get better results in strength and muscle growth. However, a dumbbell bench press has the advantage of developing your stabilizing muscles, which makes your movements smoother and ensures that you will over time be able to lift heavier weight safely without some part of your shoulder giving out on you. Many people do both. When they hit a plateau in their barbell bench pressing, they switch to dumbbells for a while and are able to break through the plateau when they return to barbells.
