    Our rack goes up to like 180lb DBs but I never see anyone using higher than 80lbs. There's a lot of guys that bench well over 200lbs like it is cake, but I never see them using the dumb bells. Anyone else see this where they work out? I don't know if it's because they are younger and inexperienced on the DB's or if its just habit by using the bar.

    I use dumbells all the time. Maybe it's because I'm really small and can't press that much so my shoulder doesn't hurt lifting the small weights. But the most I do is 66 or 77lb dumbells for incline and flat press.

    Western Michigan University. Our weight room is actually pretty small for the size of our college.

    you can't see the DB's in this pic because it was taken before the "big boy" rack was put in.

    I want to be... I'm only 5'8 147lbs and topping out with 85's - 90's. Can you imagine a guy my size repping 100's on each side? :rofl:

    Yes I can. And I hope you're doing full reps if you're gonna be bragging about those numbers.

    I use 80+ dbs for other things. I'm guessing most people just use bench there. I used to do sets of 80 for bench till I fucked my shoulder up :wtc:

    my school gym goes up to 200. I start off with 90's then work down. I've seen a lot of guys use 80-120 for benching. Sounds like your school is filled with pussies :dunno:
