Alright time to get serious. No more bs.

I started a log a while back and posted twice i think? Well this time im for real. Just some background on me. I started lifting serious about a year ago with no lifting experience at all. Although Ive only been lifting "smart" for about 6-8 months. When I started I weighed 163. Now I'm 18, about 190 ibs. My 1RM's are, 215 bench, 290-305 deadlift, and around 265 squat? I figure this type of thing will give me more motivation. So here goes...

Oh and by the way, any comments, tips, help, anything, is all welcome.

Today was my chest and back day. I was really pressed for time tho and was rushed to get everything done quickly. I didnt even have time for deadlifts... So i didnt feel i got a very productive workout

Bench- 135x10 165x8 180x5 I dont know whats going on with my bench lately, i feel like im making no progress whatsoever, mayb even going down in weight??
Incline DB's- 50'sx9 55'sx7 60'sx5
Dips- 2 sets of 10
Barbell Rows- 115x9 125x8 135x5
Lat Pulldowns- 170x9 180x8 190x7
Shrugs- 145x10 185x10 205x7

Usually I dont go to the gym on tuesdays but I didnt have enough time to do deadlifts yesterday. I've only been doin dls for a couple months and I'm starting to really like doing them. Here was my workout


I also did some abs. Some concentration ab curls, 2 sets of 12, and some abs on the pulley machine. 175x25, and 190x18
