    For heavy press I use the barbell, for volume work I use both.

    it is more economical and better environment to get a gym membership vs. buying your own equipment.

    you can argue this all day with me but at the end of the day it is important to be in a gym setting environment being pushed and watching/learning from others vs. being alone at home.

    A barbell isn't necessary really. You can just stick with dumbbells.

    If you have an adjustable bench you can do flat/incline db presses and flies. Add in some chest dips and you have a good chest routine
