Default Help with my first routine

Hey guys,

So i'll start with my experience, or lack thereof. I've been going on and off to the gym (more off than on) for about 5 years now. Never really stuck with it more than a month at a time, but this time, hopefully, it'll be different.

My technique could use tweaking, but I think I have an acceptable base for most lifts and exercises. (still working on the hamstring flexibility for both squats and deadlifts).

My 'stats' are as follows: (probably underestimated and no actual 1RM)
age: 21
weight: 170lb
height: 5'8"

Benchpress: 195lb x3
Squat: 200lb x5
deadlift: 185lb x5
Bent-over Rows: 100lb x6
Dips: bodyweight + 35lb x10
Chin-ups: bodyweight x 12
Shoulder Press: 60lb x8

My normal routine is basically all the above listed exercises (rotated depending on equipment availability and trying to keep some lifts separated to aid with rest.) I also do some ab work and 10 minutes on the cardio machine (ergometer or treadmill).

I'm sure I'm doing something terrible somewhere, but i hope to fix it with your help.

Thanks,
Iscarri

Do you do all those exercises in a day? Do you do only those numbers listed or is that just your best? Do you have a regular schedule?

Yes, every Monday and Thursday.

Do you do only those numbers listed or is that just your best?

A bit of both.

My usual work out is as such (I increased some weights):

Benchpress: 3x8 165lb
Squat: 3x8 185lb
deadlift: 3x8 175lb
Bent-over Rows: 3x8 100lb
Dips: bodyweight + 45lb 3x8
Chin-ups: bodyweight + 10lb 3x10 (although so far it's more like 10,6,6)
Shoulder Press: 60lb 3x8
