you're not doing your chest any good by throwing 4 exercises at it....try one or 2...


concentrate on the big 5...deadlifts...squats...bench...rows and military press.....supplement with some pullups and dips...

and what's your diet consist of?

and yes working out five days a week is most likely overtraining...

And read the stickies in the training & nutrition forums. That will show you how far off base you are and what you need to do to get where you want to be. Good luck

thats another thing i need help with is diet . and i figured i was overtraining but that's good that 5 days is too much because i need time to recover since i'm working out for basketball and i have games every sunday . do squats help with quickness after you train your legs for the mechanics by sprinting?

With basketball do you practice every day ? Does your coach have you and your team on a set scheduale for training ?

6'2 @ 175lbs is lean - I think (not sure) you may want to step up your calories... If you can go to www.fitday.com and record what your eating , find out how many calories your putting into your body then that will help a lot.
