    Dude, based off your questions you been posting lately, I'd say you're fairly new to the game and if so, stop trying to find some obscure movement thats going to work better. Do basics until you have achieved some real results first

    unless it physically causes you pain to do an upright row do them all you want. Its not going to kill you to throw them in there every few weeks.

    i dont even consider an upright row to be all that important. and you were the one that started a thread about bb vs db weight, and how it translates - thats what i was talking about.

    if they work for you, do them.

    I thought the dumbell upright rows were called "bulldogs".

    In terms of preserving your shoulders, anything is better than an upright row.

    how can db vs bb weight not be something you understand by that point? do we have a mongoloid on our hands?

    stick to presses, side laterals, facepulls/reverse flys for now... you're new, you're going to grow off anything

    maybe some people just work out instead of nitpicking and overanalyzing stuff on the internet?

    Thanks I rarely ever did DB's till recently.

    Im 30 years old now and from 99-02 I was really into lifting and I never really touched DB's for Benching. I just started back in September and now am in love with doing bench work with the DB's. I knew there was a significant difference of the weight ratio but I wanted a pro's answer aka Pur, Ray whomever.

    Thanks Ceaze.

    In my case, the heaviest dumbells I've ever used is 150. I can rep them out for 15-20 reps. That's equal to 300. I can bench press 315 for 20 reps so if you look at it like that, it's about the same. However, I can raw bench 500 for a single but I doubt I could press 250 pound dumbells.
