  2. I'm glad to help, just keep an open mind and learn to build a BS meter. By my count that makes 11-13 exercises during a gym session. How long are you at the gym? I do 3-5 exercises plus a bit of conditioning and I'm pushing 90-120 minutes depending on what my main movement is. What rep ranges are you hitting on the compound upper movements (the regular and incline benching, both with the bar and dumbbells) and what rep range are you hitting with the isolation stuff? I ask because it seems your program is a bit all over the map with no paramenters to allow for progressive overload. Push and pull are used to identify the way direction in which your arms and the weight move during a movement on the concentric (contractile) phase. 'Push' exercises move the weight away from the body and work the muscles of the front. 'Pull' exercises move the weight towards the body (oversimplification) and generally work the muscles of the back. You want your push and pull exercises and reps to be roughly equal so that the muscles of the front don't overpower the muscles of the back and pull your shoulders out of correct anatomical position (again a gross oversimplification). Final question, what are your back exercises, specificially?

  3. Seems like overkill to me. The key to progress is NOT doing 17 different exercises, but progressively overloading (either more weight or more reps, or both) the big movements and doing 1-2 'filler' exercises. If you want to focus on upper chest, do two incline exercises first, (I'd do incline BB bench 4x6-8 followed by incline DB bench 4-5x10) then throw in some flat bench and dips. I wouldn't worry with decline if the goal is the upper chest because decline is primarily a target for the pectoralis major (lower 2/3rds) or the chest and has litle if any affect on the upper chest. Sidenote: How much pulling are you doing? You are doing a lot of pushing exercises which can cause some serious shoulder issues like your shoulders being pulled foward because the muscles of the back are overpowered by the muscles of the chest. I also can't imagine your back work is anything more than cursory if you're doing 7 push exercises first.
