what can i do with what i have
Let me start by saying hello to all. I have been reading posts and threads here for a while before actually writing one myself. I have gathered some awesome information and learned a lot from just reading. Now I want to ask you all a question that I hope makes sense.
I have restricted equipment as far as dumbells and leg machines go. I do have a bench that is capable of inclineing, declineing, and of course regular bench presses. I have more than enough weight to perform all of those lifts properly and to exhaustion. I do not have a lot of problems with targeting any areas but my problem comes with the workout.
I was wondering if any of you could give me a basic 5 day workout plan that can be done without the machines and etc. Thanks in advance for the help!!!!!

What are your goals, bulking up I assume?
Remember Lower reps higher wieght = strength & mass Higher reps lower weight = cuts.
If you just trying to pack on some muscle you could do something like this.
Monday and Thursday
Bench 3 X 8 (sets) (reps)
DB Flys: 3 X 10
Military press: 3 X 8
Dips (you can set up something to do them on): 3 X 10 (or whatever your capable of)
French Press: 3 x 8
Abs and Calves to failure
Tuesday and Friday
Bent Over Rows: 3 X 8
WG Chins (check out a chin bar/dip bar in one setup) 3 X As many as you can
BB Curl: 3 X 8
Hammer Curl: 3 X 8
BB Squat: 3 X 8
Leg Ext: 3 X 10 (if you dont have the attachment stick to squats and lunges)
Leg Curl: 3 X 10
Abs and Forearms to failure
If you can't do it twice a week keep trying till you can. Eat properly and adjust your cardio according to how lean you are and where you wanna be. Do it for about 8 weeks and the revise the program.

So what youre saying is all you have is this bench and some weights and nothing else? That and you want to learn how to do exercises in a workout routine weekly without actually going to the gym like just staying home in your living room stuff? Let me know I can whip one up for you. I'd rather see you hit the gym though.

Back.. Db rows.. incline pulls (chest on the bench pulling the weight up)
Shoulders.. presses, raises
bi/tri.. easy enough
legs... Do you have a bar and plates? .. you can get pretty exotic with squats,lunges,SLD, and regular deads (hehe back excercise)
