Home Gym Addition: Barbell

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.

Isn't it?

wei...really? but where to put the barbell? i want to have barbell too... but i dun have the stand. the stand at pushmore is quite good, since it saves space, compare to those squat racks at the gym. correcto? I mean, to do squats, you'll definitely need the stand right? takkan put on floor?
