How to convert your dumbbell bench press weight to barbell bench press weight.
If you can lift X amount of weight with the dumbbell bench press, how do you convert that number into how much weight you can lift with a barbell bench press?
Or vice versa, how can you figure out your dumbbell bench weight based on how much weight you can lift with a barbell bench press?
That’s what we’re going to discuss in this blog post…

Just the other day one of my YouTube subscribers asked me:
“Is there a rule of thumb for converting dumbbell press weight to bench press weight? I have no idea where to start with benching because all I ever do is dumbbell presses, and I’m guessing it’s not as simple as just adding the 2 together and shifting to barbell form.”
Unfortunately, there is no cut and dried answer or mathematical formula that you can plug your numbers into and get an exact conversion calculation for dumbbell vs. barbell bench press.
But generally speaking you will be able to lift more total weight with a barbell than you can with dumbbell’s. The reason for this is that when you are pressing dumbbells you have to balance and stabilize 2 weights. And when you are pressing a barbell you only have to balance and stabilize 1 weight.
Now the exact increase in poundage will vary from person to person. And in some rare cases certain people may actually be stronger with dumbbells than they are with a barbell, but this is the exception and not the rule.
This is how the bench press strength curve goes for most people:
– Dumbbell Bench Press (weakest)
– Barbell Bench Press (stronger)
– Machine Bench Press (strongest)
When you are using a bench press machine such as a smith machine, hammer strength machine, etc. the machine is balancing the weights for you and all you have to do is exert 100% pressing effort. So you’ll generally be stronger again with machine lifts compared to free weight lifts.

You’re brand new. Never tried a program. You’re not totally sure about things yet.
$10 and you a get a ‘the right direction’ plan.
So… You could still win on your own. Even if you didn’t ever take on another program. But if it’s a good program that you’re after. Then… We wouldn’t just leave you hanging. You need that higher level of help.
The 30 day trial ‘is’ the best program (gold) experience.
We’re learning about you, you’re learning about all things S-curvish. For some… The experience is very different to what they’ve done before.
But then, they start winning. And question things no more. Ha.
You know ‘what’s up’ at this point. You’re in.
This is where the true program begins. The reason why it’s best to start on gold, is because we’re very hands on and intense. There’s a lot to learn. Which usually happens over a 6-18 month time period. But it gets easier over time. Which is why we have the bronze program.
6-12 months on stage 3 it is for most people. But like I said… It gets easier over time. However… Most members have been here for 3-5+ years.
They always come back.
The 90-100% S-curve goal is 1-5 years in this lifestyle. So you’ll need ‘something’ to look after you during this period.
Talking of coming back though…
You can see, her story so far on > this page. And I’ve added her recent S-curvish pics to the page too. Just scroll down to the bottom.
Yup. Still very S-curvish.
She doesn’t post a lot of pics like that. Because there are a lot of ups and downs in her life… Like everyone else.
That’s what it’s like after your initial 6-12 month period of becoming S-curvish. You can see that in her picture story too. As she was very active in the beginning stages.
Either way… It’s been 3-5 years since she first made the change to become S-curvish. And today, as you can see… She’s still very much there.
She hasn’t slipped back into her less-curvish self that you can see in her first pictures.
#1 Becoming S-curvish
#2 Shredding to smexy
We’ve been at this since 2011-12. We’re truly in this for the long term. It was said then. And it’s being said now, all these years later. Everything has been documented.
It doesn’t matter if your goal is #1 or #2. Your long term time line will look similar Stephys, above.
The most important part of that, is that you don’t ever have to do it alone. ‘Alone’ is tough.
Now let’s get back to living this awesome lifestyle. And take a look at all recent travel-curvish pics too via > More buzz pages.
