The best way to use a barbell is to perform exercises that utilize the principles of
Specificity is the degree to which we match the stressors on our body with our exercise tool—the more specific, the more effective. For instance, a barbell bench press is better for chest development than a dumbbell because it taxes your chest muscles from multiple angles and requires you to hold your body weight above your chest muscles.
Reversibility refers to how well we can reverse the stressors placed on our muscle groups during exercise. It requires strength and balance, which can be trained with bars. It also helps when it comes time for recovery, as most athletes need time for their muscle fibres to repair themselves before they get back into it again.
Overload refers to the extra load placed on muscles during exercise - this could be weight added or decreased or load shifted from one set of muscles onto another. It helps users build muscle and strength while working out.
