The sum of the 2 dumbbells is usually significantly lighter than the whatever barbell weight you were using. Thats why people use barbell for strength and power, it allows for more weight. Form and experience also have a lot to do with it. Since your switching because of injuries, I would just start off really light and take a week to find what weights for what movements. Just start extra light, and work your way up the rack.

there is not conversion. its a different lift and there is no direct universal carry over.
for example, you can take 2 people that can do a barbbell movement with the same weight and there could be a massive difference between what they could do with DBs.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

Makes sense. Think incan try a 45 in each hand for 3x12 chest press?

Yes definitely. But if it doesn't pan out, try the 40s.Originally Posted by AmazingAJ
