    Get some dips in your routine mate....weighted if possible!

    Weighted dips work on the triceps, for your chest, have a look HERE
    I tend to like doing dumbbell presses (flat and incline bench), dumbbell flies, cable flies (high, medium and low) and decline bench press. Then you can use some of the machines like a chest fly/press as well. They will help you develop your pectoral muscles.

    Weighted dips work on the triceps

    Um... so? They also work your chest. And your delts. In the same way that any benching variation does. They are a compound movement that's the point.
    I think you might be getting confused with Bench Dips/Tricep Dips?

    An exercise that one may swear by may be one another avoids. You just need to try different exercises, combinations and training systems to find what works for you. After years of chest being a real struggle for me to get working I seem to have finally got a combo right that I feel is producing results (or I could be imagining it LOL)
    The basics are certainly Flat, inc, dec (using BBs or DBs), dips, flyes, cables.... find the combo that works

    Dont try to lift over heavy,  make sure your technique is correct first and then increase the weight from there
