    Upper Body workouts

    I really need a good workout for my upper body. I would like to have my back bulkier and stronger, my shoulders alot stronger and chest a lot bigger and stronger. My arms bigger, alot stronger and more defined. My lower body is ok, but considering I squatted over 600lbs in high school I know it won't take anytime to get my legs back...Does anyone have a good routine to suggest?
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 213lbs
    Current Bench Max: 350lbs
    CurrentGoal: Decent abs, Decent looking body ,and benching 400lbs one day

    Check out my journal. My upper body is a lot stronger (my bench is almost in Advanced level on the charts) than my lower body so I can't give great advice on legs and stuff.

    The routine I made, which is modified after a mass workout I read about in the summer, is giving me ridiculous muscle gains. I am still doing it since July. My goal is to hit 200 lbs by Dec 31st. I started at 155 lbs and now I am at around 190 lbs.

    The routine is 3 times a week, 1-1.5 hours per workout, entire body.

    WBB #1 actually caused me to lose weight from the 1 muscle/week routine.

    Train chest before back, then. Substitute weighted dips for the triceps workout on Day 4.

    Hit a routine that has more than 1 growth cycle a week. Regardless of how much you squat, working your legs is going to be benificial to your other lifts.
