Glad I listened.

I talked to my old gym's manager and asked about racks. He said they don't plan to have racks even after renovation is completed because some people had hurt themselves. I asked him to cancel my membership. He tried to convince me to use dumbbells for DLs and that racks are only needed if I plan to do power lifting and competition. What a dumbass.

You need more intensity in your workouts man. What you're doing is like a warm-up!

Like what? A complete example would be great especially for legs and chest.

I think after you helped me with back it's ok, and shoulder day is ok as well.

I'm doing 4 exercises per muscle group with low reps and heavy weights. Most splits I have researched have the same structure. What am I missing?

dude for legs I'd do something like this

3x5 squats
3x10 lunges each leg
3x8 Leg Press
3x8 romanian deads
3x15 calf bull sh1t

This can all be debated and mixed and matched a million different ways. If you're having trouble moving up and down stairs when you're done then you did a good job.

I read so many debates on bench vs dumbbells. DBs seemed the better exercise overall. Am I missing something by not doing barbell presses?

I already do exactly what you do except for barbell but less volume than you. 3 sets, 4 exercises, finish with push ups. How can I make it more intense? I already can barely move my arms when I'm done.

For legs, front squats, back squats, lounges, stiff deadlifts, calf. 3 sets of each excluding warm up. My legs would be sore for days after that.

I think you're ok then. On paper somethings look a lot easier than they are. Legs are probably good too but don't associate soreness for a good workout.

And barbell bench will result in making your overall more powerful. DB's isolate a little better I think so I do both right now.

The bench will also broaden you. Dumbbells will not!!!

P.S. z00....add more volume. You're not going to grow doing it the way you're doing it.

Details bro, volume? What to increase in this?

DB Bench Press - 2 set of 65lbs X 7 and 1 x 6 70lbs
Incline DB Press - 1 x 6 65lbs, 2 x 7 60lbs

Dips 1 x 12, 1 x 10 with 40lbs, 1 x 9 with 35lbs
Pushups 1 x 8, 1 x 6 with 40lbs, 1 x 5 with 35lbs

high Cable flies 3 x 10 40lbs each handle


-PS

I'll swap flat DB press to barbell, but I won't lift as heavy as I don't have a spotter.

Try something like...

Flat bench - 5 sets/varying weight
Incline bench superset with
Incline DB - 5 sets/varying weight
Cable flies - 5 sets/varying weight
Dips - 5 sets varying weight

Try to get at least 40-50 reps (..not including warm-up sets ) during each of those 5 sets per exercise. Increase your time under tension. Force your body to grow and adapt. Right now you're getting 40 total reps over two press exercises. NOT ENOUGH!!! You'll get 80-100 reps over the course of your press workout by adding volume. Huge difference!

Supersetting incline bench BB with incline DB means I won't be lifting heavy. So reduce the weights and increase reps? I'll go heavy on the flat bench.
