I’ve been doing dumbell presses for a while now, because I don’t have a partner, and I hate asking random people for a spot, the people in my gym are so clueless I don’t trust any of them. Am I missing out on something by doing dumbell presses? I’m sure if I was using a bar I’d be putting up more weight, but does that matter? What are the pros and cons of doing dumbell presses? Also, whenever I see anyone else doing them, they bring the weights together at the top of the form and clink them together. Is that really the best way to do them? I’ve always just tried to simulate the mostion of a barbell press as closely as possible, but I’ve never really known if that was right or not.
