Me thinks it's high time that I start working out using a barbell instead of using dumbbells and bodyweight only. Attending the Foundation Series at Pushmore has given me a bit of confidence in training with the barbell.
The cost is of course, a hindrance. Barbells don't come cheap. And plates are expensive too. But I was thinking of buying a barbell only and fix the weights from my adjustable dumbbells to the barbell. If I'm not mistaken the diameter for the dumbbell and barbell is the same.
