a couple of things. you obviously have limited equipment but i think a good workout can still be had.
monday is fine
wednesday will the chair dips be strong enough to support you when you start to use some weight? if not how about some floor presses as long as you can rig up some kind of safety support.
i would also add either some power cleans or high pulls on your friday routine. i would say full deads but it might be to much with sldl on monday.
chinning width dont worry about that use what you have got.
definately keep things like standing miitary press in there
So about 30 inches for chest dips.
The chairs seem strong enough, they are metal framed. I tried them out with 2kg in each pocket. I can add more weight to my rucksack next time.
Previous to doing chair dips I was doing press ups with a ruck sack and added weight so I wanted a change.
By floor presses do you mean lay on my back and press a bar or db's?
Power cleans? Is that where I lift the bb from the floor and rest it on my clavicles?
I could drop the reps to 5 on all the exercises, do you think that would be best for gaining mass?
I have no squat racks or supports, thats why I started doing front rather thanback squats. I lift the weight from the floor onto my clavicles and then squat, at the end of the set I place it back on the floor.
All the equipment I have is a bb set of db's plenty of weight, collars, a lenght of 9 x 3 inch timber for calf raises, lenght of scaffold pole to lay across loft hatch for pull ups if I want a change from bb curls and 2 strong chairs.
