dat work out routine

I've been lifting regularly for about 2 months now. my main goal is to gain upper body strength, because i require it so much in the military. i'm trying to balance out my body as a woman, since women are more bottom heavy, i really push myself to get a strong upper body.

i've split my workout into three days, with the numbers being my 1 RM:

day 1: arms
- skullcrushers 45 lbs
- barbell curl 53 lbs
- close grip bench press 65 lbs
- dumbbell incline bench curl 26 lbs
- tricep kickback 22 lbs
- concentration curls 26 lbs
- tricep push down v bar 93 lbs
- cable curls 80 lbs

i used to have forearm work outs in my arms day, but i found it caused actually some distracting pain in my left arm. i was afraid of hurting myself during my other work outs (curls especially) so i've cut them out for now. i need to find a way to introduce them again and get strong muscles so it doesn't hurt as much

day 2: chest and back
- barbell row 84 lbs
- bench press 86 lbs
- deadlift 139 lbs
- dumbbell fly 21 lbs
- chin up bodyweight exercise so no weight
- dumbbell bent arm pullover 30 lbs
- wide grip lat pulldown 78 lbs
- dumbbell hammer grip incline bench press 26 lbs

these numbers aren't impressive very much. i need to incorporate more inclined benching. i can't do a chin up, but i've been working on negatives and i can feel it improving already

day 3: shoulders and legs
- dumbbell arnold press 22 lbs
- barbell squat 88 lbs
- over head press 69 lbs
- seated leg curl 82 lbs
- barbell shrug 80 lbs
- seated calf raise 68 lbs
- dumb bell front raise 19 lbs
- dumb bell lunges 18 lbs

this day fucking sucks the most for me. over head press is so hard and tires me out quickly. squatting makes me feel like garbage. i used to do lateral raises but it was way to difficult to actually lift a decent amount of weight and keep my form. i don't know, this day is the hardest for me. it really sucks. my shoulders are weak as hell and even doing lunges after squatting is murder. i think i might cut out the lunges and just go hard on the squatting. i used to do the leg extension machine, but one of the personal trainers at the gym said it was junk and it caused HUGE DOMS for me so i stopped.

i try to go to the gym five times a week. arms, chest, arms, back, arms. i do arms three days a week. maybe my problem is that i need to focus more on where i'm weaker... ie shoulders lol

my routine is always changing though. if i'm not satisfied, i change things up.

my gym keeps pushing the personal trainer, i mean of course they do, but there's a good deal for 3 sessions and i'd like to take advantage of it. i need to make sure my form is good. i need to get the best work outs for getting big, strong muscles. i know that lateral raises are fantastic for your delts, but i really really struggle with them and it's demotivating.

also running is fucking garbage and i hate it. i need to run more so im thinking of running to my gym. it's about 5 km / 3 miles. google maps tells me that's an hour each way, but if i run i'm sure i can cut that down to at least a half hour each way. that means i'll have to devote 2 hours a day to the gym, so i can't do it on days that i work night shifts. but my city is built from the sea level to up a mountain, so there's a ton of hills. it's going to be fucking hard.

but oh well what's the point in life if it's easy
