      A quick question that's been on my mind: Are heavy dumbbells a must-have for powerlifting success? We often see the spotlight on barbells and plates, but I'm curious about the role of dumbbells, especially the heavier ones, in powerlifting routines.

      Do you use heavy dumbbells in your training? What impact have they had on your performance? Keen to hear your experiences and insights!

      Heavy dumbbells are not essential for powerlifting success but they can be beneficial for addressing imbalances, adding variety, and enhancing overall strength and stability. Barbell exercises remain the primary focus in powerlifting training.
