Capone, I'd say you're overdoing it on Monday for chest. I'd do regular bench, and maybe incline, and do bench again, along with close-grip (if I did that) on Wednesday or Friday. As far as skull crushers, I hate them. They are known to be really hard on the elbows. Dips are good, though. You could rearrange a few other things.

Max bench 300 @ 205, you're doing good, kid! I'm 260, and I'm doing 225x3...

Since when did a 1.5BW bench become shameful? I think it is time for a reality check.

might want to lower the rep scheme if you're going for more "strength"...the closer you work toward the 300 mark...the stronger you will get.http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=998224
