I began lifting weights about 4 months ago, and have seen significant improvements. I use a pretty basic home gym, and about all I have to work with is a bench press with a lat bar on the other end, a barbell, an EZ curl bar, and several dumbells. I have changed up the exercises I do several times, and I adjust the weight so everything I do falls within the rep range of 8-12, and I do the exercise till about 1 rep to failure, for 3 sets. I am unable to do any leg exercises, which I hate, but in the future I may get another barbell to dead lift with. This are the exercises I do:
Barbell Military Press with Barbell
Upright Rows with Barbell
Bicep Curls with EZ curl bar
I do those 3x a week. I have heard however not to work a muscle group more than once a week, and then I have heard it is OK as long as you give 48 hours rest to muscles.
post the splits of how you would split this up
Do you not have legs?
OM MANI PADME HUM
Well currently I just do all those 3 days a week. Should I split those up and do different exercises each of the 3 days?
Oh and like I said, this is a simple home gym, not sure how to work my legs because I can't do squats or leg press or anything, though I may get another barbell to deadlift with eventually.

Why cant you deadlift with the barbell you have?Oh and like I said, this is a simple home gym, not sure how to work my legs because I can't do squats or leg press or anything, though I may get another barbell to deadlift with eventually.
Theres lots of leg exercises you can do with the equipment you have: Hack squats, overhead squats, lunges, travelling lunges, single leg lunges and step ups just to name a few.
