    My advice would be to do compounds first and push for more weight, less reps. 5-6 rep range.

    I was doing some Bench Press, Squats the other night, roughly 3 sets of each. I can do 60 lb dumb bell presses, but when it comes to bench press, I seem quite weak.

    Honestly, I'd expect a mid-20 year old healthy male, who had been working out for going on 3 years to have significantly higher lifts -- assuming he was lifting hard and consistently.

    How do you decide when to up the weights? How long did it take you to go from 135 to 145 on the squat and bench press?

    What is your height and weight?

    I assume you have not followed a proven routine, which would explain the lifts being as low as they are.
    Short cuts to success are often paved with lies.
    1/13/16: Massive hernia.
    5/10/16: Finally back to lifting, light but improving.

    Dude you look like you've never stepped foot in a gym before and your lifts are what I would expect a hard working 16 year old to achieve by the time he turned 17.

    Is there a reason why you’re doing a full body workout? Is your main goal strength or hypertrophy? I find that full body workouts are great for beginners, and for people looking to burn more fat(even though diet is most important for fat loss). I found after my first year or two I was taxing my body too much doing full body and started doing volume type training for muscle growth by doing a Push-pull-legs split 3 days on, 1 day off. So if starting on Monday I would do Mon-push, Tues – pull, Wed-legs, Thurs-rest, Fri-push, etc. I think 3x10 is ok but I would switch it up and do 6-8reps on compound movements and 10-15 on isolation movements and add an extra set so you could do 4x6-8 instead. Push exercises could be incline press, flat press, dips, cable tricep extensions, cable crossovers high to low(lower chest), cable crossovers low to high(upper chest), lateral raises, military press. Pull I would do barbell rows, tbar rows, seated cable row, straight arm pulldown, db rows or hammer strength row, pull ups, lat pulldowns(underhand, vbar, wide), BB/DB curl. Legs -squats/front squats, leg press, lunges, step ups, stiff legged deadlift, calf raises, leg curl/extension. Imo I think deadlifts should be low reps to focus on strength and form rather than doing high reps so 3x1-5 instead of 3x10. Also, experiment with intensity techniques like drop sets, triple drop sets, pyramid training, pre-exhaust, supersets, slow negatives, cheat reps, etc. Although not as functional as free weights, hammer strength equipment is great for targeting specific parts of your muscles. Also, if you want a stronger bench, work your back/rear delts/triceps more.
