    I don't have the necessary equipment to do an incline bench press with the barbell and my friend said dumbells are just as good, so I thought about using them. Is it ok to substitute dumbells for a barbell when doing these routines?

    Thanks.

    it's good to mix up machines, db's, and barbell every now and then.

    db's help you control better in my opinion
