I'm a gym lifter trying to just become as strong as possible raw (belt only). I work a ton of hours, have 3 kids, and am very domesticated. My training has been very inconsistent over the past 5 years. I've been back at it hard for around 8 months and hope to gets some helpful hints on this board. I'm 5'10 280 pounds drug free. Ive been dealing eith nagging injuries that have held me back somewhat. My left elbow is killing me and I get a pec pull every now and then. Ive thrown my back out s ton of times. I did a month of rehab...no sq, BP, or dl and hope to continue to make progress. I am weak as piss for my size. In terms of a routine I'm trying not to over think things....just get in the gym and SFW depending on how I feel. Constructive feedback is welcome....

Anyway here goes:

Incline db press: 40x12; 80x8; 120x5 or 6
