Thats hard to answer..yu seem inexperienced so try working o your technique before worrying about amount of weight

If you want to increase the weight you're lifting but you're not sure about how much to add, just add the smallest amount you can and see how it goes. If it goes ok, add a little more.
Also don't forget to match your pressing with pulling motions (pullups and rows), rep for rep, pound for pound, more or less. If you don't you can get messed up shoulders.

very generic question.....you will eventually increase strength by increasing weight but it doesnt mean that it will increase muscle mass

So if you do 3 sets of 10 bench press, you'll want to do 2-3 sets of 10 rows at roughly the same weight, or 30 pullups. Lat pulldowns are ok too if you can't manage pullups.
Balancing your push & pull exercises will help you avoid upper cross syndrome, which can lead to shoulder problems, esp. if you're lifting heavier weights.

yeah I been working on my techniques lately. I think that is my problem. I am a bit impatient. I know people would kill for the weight gain I received in 6 months from 170ish to 200-05 as of now but I feel like I am no where close to my goal..but I should learn how to take baby steps
I just been trying to figure out the science behind bodybuilding. I mean I know its time, food, and lifting heavy. for bulking and cutting is opposite except the time part, lol.
But what is the real science behind it. Like for instance is there a real difference in lets say, 2 ectomorphs have same genetics, life style, weight, lifting style and consume the same exact calories; lets say, 4000 calories. What is the science behind BB if one goes heavy 4-6 reps and stays on that weight until he reaches 8-12 reps and adds weight until he can hit 4-6 reps with the right weight
someone who does 4-6 reps next exercise add more weight rather then waiting till he can do 8-12 reps and so on and so on. But always staying around the 4-6 rep
