Ok so I am looking for some feedback on my chest workout routine.
Pushups 6 x 20
Decline Pushup 6 x 15
Chest flyes 6 x 15
Dumbell bench press 6 x 15
Dips 6 x 10
Rest 45 seconds
Basically I do 20 pushups, 15 decline pushups, 15 chest flyes,15 dumbell bench presses and 10 dips. I rest 45 seconds and then restart. I do 6 sets in total.
I only have a pair of dumbells at home so that's all I have to work with. I do the dips on my kitchen counter. Is there any way I can improve my routine? I'm actually thinking of increasing the amount of dips that I do. My lower chest seems to be lacking.

I'd put the push ups after flyes and do dips first. Your concern about your lower chest shouldn't be a problem now - crank out those reps. maybe 3 or 4 sets to failure will do.

Dips is an excellent exercise IMO to build up your back, chest and arms. U can try doing weighted dips by clamping the weights using your legs or wearing a weighted vest. For variations, speed and reps are two good factors you can modify over time to continue "shocking" ur muscles.

I think I'll let my muscles start getting used to the amount of dips I'm doing now and start doing them to failure after awhile. Maybe I'll add weights as well.

That sounds like quite a workout! I mostly just do pushups and lift some weights! I don't even know what most of those exercises are but I should look into them because I want to muscle up my arms and chest. I am a runner so I mostly work on my legs.

Very nice workout. Sounds like something i could just about manage to handle, looking forward to trying it out.
