    need advice on lifting

    i have 330lb of weights/barball/2 dumbbells/inclinable bench/ my goal is to squat:260/curl:135/flat bench:230/military press:150 hopfully by early next year. i was wondering if it could be done with mostly 3x8 or 3x10 workouts 3-4 times aweek. heres the workouts i have sofar.
    flat bench:70 3x10
    incline bench:70 3x10
    military press:45 3x10
    barbell curl:45 3x10
    barbell rows:65 3x10
    dead lift:65 3x10
    alternate hammer curls dumbells:19 each hand 3x10
    squat:80 3x10
    incline bench fly:10 each hand 3x10
    standing fly 3x10
    i might need more exercises but not sure what ones atm, with these weights i get just a light burn but i have also tried doing all 5x5 but i get a heavy burn.

    Welcome to the board, Being that you are a novice to lifting based on your description of the weights you are currently using, I strongly suggest you look into purchasing Mark Ripptoe's starting strength book. It will help you achieve all your goals, except for the curl one, But, you will probably be able to just do that if you follow what he lays out anyway.

    +1 for Starting Strength. It's a good read and not very difficult. Great to learn form. I strongly suggest it.

    Doing what you've got listed is just a bunch of exercises you know about that your threw together. Look into SS, BGB, WWB1, etc. - a premade routine - and then follow it.
    Give chalk a chance.
