Our expert says:
Are we talking dumbell chest press?
The only difference is that the bench press involves the bar, so the left-right interaction is different compared to if you use two separate dumbbells. Here, we're talking about left vs right weaknesses, how much the supporting muscles are activated etc.
I'd say that if you can do both, then chest press is good, but be aware of left-right imbalances, which might be compensating etc.
