Barbell vs. Dumbbells

The barbell and dumbbells are some of the most common pieces of equipment in the weight room.  While both are incredibly effective for building muscle, both serve different purposes.  If your goal is to build absolute strength and power, the barbell would be a more effective choice than using dumbbells.  Olympic lifts such as the clean and press, and snatch revolve around the barbell as well.  However, using dumbbells will allow you to activate more of your stabilizer muscles compared to using a barbell, and with dumbbells you can also train your body unilaterally (single arm bicep curl is an example of a unilateral exercise).  So, which one is better?  Neither!  Both pieces of equipment are extremely beneficial, and both should be a consistent part of your routine.
