    fat?

    you need to drop the reps and up the weight (a lot) cause I doubt you could even bench your weight at this point (which is pretty sad, in my opinion)

    you should be coming to almost a failure on your last set of most of your exercises...

    try upping the weight a few pounds every week until you find that point, then go at it until you're not failing, and up it again..

    numbers are nothing, the fact that you're doing something is waht's important.

    try pulling your shoulder blade together when you are benching and pushing your lats out, that will help take some of the force off the tri's.

    and it's good that you recognize your tri's are failing, that means hit 'em hard :)

    flat and incline are the same because you are working with high reps and very light weights. When you start going heavier, you'll probably find that you can't do as much on incline. While it's a good idea to make sure you have proper form down by starting with light weight, you should be going heavier, especially on your presses. On your last set, use a weight that you can only get for 4-6 reps. Try to push yourself to do a little bit more every week, whether it be 5 more lbs or 1 more rep than the prior week. don't be content with doing the same thing week after week. If you have some dedication, this will be a piece of cake for your first six months as that is the time when gains will come quickest and easiest.

    because the range of motion for shrugs is tiny.. you're doing very little work compared to long range movements like presses

    I would definitely recommend dropping your reps and increasing weight.
