Not really making any sence. How do you up weight in a 1x5? And your calf work seems spuratic. Try the 1x8-6-4-2 bench uping your weight so your set of 2 is near fail. That will help push your weights up.

I would definitely change things up more if I were you. Remember that it is very important to shock your muscles in order for maximum muscle growth, and take in plenty of protein after workout out.

how do you think that routine will compare to doing a standard BB routine such as each body part once week and doing a good amount of isolations?

if all you really want to do is get a bigger chest and calves...and a bigger bench...

nevermind.

what's your training history look like?
