I can't do flat bench because our gym doesn't have one so that's why I use the dumbbells. I do squat, military press, and rows. I also use the leg press machine they have although i'm sure that's worthless since i'm doing squats.

and yes I have progressed immensely in the last 4 months. I began on my flat bench with 45 lb dumbbells....i'm now using the 100's for 4-6 reps and doing 3 sets. My incline was about the same when I began. I'm also now inclining 100's even better than I'm flat benching. When I started I could barely get 5 pullups. Now i'm strapping a bookbag with a 50 lb weight inside it to myself and doing 6-7 pullups for 3 sets. lat pulls i was using something like a 30, now i'm up to 85. My gains have been incredible. I started off at a sloppy 210 lbs at 6'2''. Now i'm a lean and cut 185. I've never been so pleased with myself and my lifestyle. I've got my eating down to a science as I use to eat junk food all the time. Girls are commenting like crazy. I feel alive and energenic. My chest has definitely progressed but out of all my muscles it was the least improvement that;'s why im taking all advice on it.

thanks again

always a good idea to work two very important muscles...erector spinae and the hamstrings.

I only workout three days a week. For my body type... it is just perfect.

Monday - Shoulders ,Chest , Triceps.

Wednesday - Legs and abbs.

Friday - Back, Biceps and some cardio.

this is probably the least optimal thing to do for most people.

since someone is going to ask me why, allow me to post some links below:
