theres your problem buddy....your overtraining.

dumb down stuff and learn to walk out of the gym with a pump, but dont go so far beyond a pump that you arent even pumped anymore.

yes that's overtraining. I do 12-15 sets for chest, and most would agree that's a pretty good range.

yea scratch bench out and put dumbbell press more effective because u have too balance the weights more with dumbbells.. u have to extert more energy (using full chest muscles) when your trying to balance weights rather then doing the bar u don't have to balance it as much... and the number of reps should be in the range 8-10 at the maximum weight that u can peform them at).... but some do like 4-6 range of reps, i perfer 8-10 though. and u should scratch the dips too and just do the pullovers (or vis versa as long as your doing 4 exercises)....your doing 6 exercises just for the chest u should only be doing 4 different exercises for the chest/pectorial region

yeah he has a point u only need 4 exercises and u should drop the dips. its not good to over work it. and i prefer 6-8 reps at the maximum weight. try that and see how that works out. if u still dont see a difference give it time. it might just be genetics

Here's a highly effective routine that I used for over a year and saw awesome gains in size and strength:

incline dumbbell press - 2 sets of 4-6 reps
wide-grip dips - 2 sets of 4-6 reps
flat dumbbell press - 1 set of 4-6 reps

Take every set to failure and try to increase each week in either weight or reps. As long as you train HARD you do NOT need to train often or with high amounts of volume.
