Thanks Log in to reply Nicole says: September 9, 2018 at 6:27 pmNot more effective, just different 🙂 Kind of like using dumbbells vs barbell for bicep curls. Using a barbell for lateral raises is much harder! Log in to reply Tara says: March 24, 2019 at 5:34 pmI’m not sure I can lift the barbell, may I use a dumbbell for less weight?
