...with barbell. (no spotter) The only benching I do is with dumbbells, and I'm repping with 55's. Just curious, what would that correspond to 'barbell'-wise? at least 110? hahah
You should be fine with 135lbs
Dumbell benching is harder then barbell and much better for you than barbell, IMO.
i definetely like dumbbell better, i see a lot better results, and it works both pecs equally, where as with barbell you could be pushing harder with one side, etc etc

You should not limit yourself to one or the other though, they each have their own benefits, do DB for a while then switch it up to BB. Don't limit yourself.

I'm just a bit scared about doing bench press by myself. When i do dumbbell press there are alot of times I go for one last rep and have to semi-drop the dumbbells. So I think I'll stick with DB-press. Would be nice to have a workout buddy or something. Haha
There's no reason to be afraid.
If you don't think you can get another rep, you just don't try for it. It won't do you much good anyways.

Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
