True in theory, but then squats have definitely worked for me so far and I still have plenty of strength potential left.
Bench wise I'm yet to see anyone handling 110lb+ dumbbells without comfortably having 225lb bench or higher BP, you can't just build muscle whilst avoiding being able to press quite a lot. I'm just going with what you see in the gym and most huge guys can bench 300lb+. To digress though, I do agree it could be possible potentially 'for me' that dumbbells could build a bigger chest quicker, however, it's mostly a personal goal to try and be proficient at the bench press first and I'm looking for tips from those who've had success with the exercise for bodybuilding purposes.
@akuma&thoughts- Squats sound like what I will be going with for the most part, I tried hitting them like the jrod video today (not heavy) and I'm just going to be disciplined and stick to that, even if it knocks 10-20kg off my squats. So for now I consider them sorted out really.. we'll see on Wednesday when I squat.
Interesting thoughts on the bench press... it's certainly echoed heavily that it "didn't do much for me' however my thought is how could I truly ever say that before I could hit at least 300lb+ for reps and then view my chest? Right now my chest is growing proportionally fine to the rest of my progress and I'm sure putting over 100lbs on it would be a big visible difference. I realise this isn't true for everyone but I just seem to put on muscle when I get stronger. Maybe it's because I have to work so hard for increases in strength..
