    35 lbs for your barbell bench press and 25 lbs for your dumbbell press are really very light. Also 15 reps is more for endurance than muscle building. Normally one would start with an empty olympic bar which weighs 20 kg or 44 lbs and then increase the weight by +- 5 lbs every workout. Try increasing your weight and decreasing the amount of exercises you do. As a beginner doing flat, incline, decline barbell as well as flat dumbbell, incline dumbbell and then dumbbell pullovers is just way too much. Do something like flat barbell bench press and incline Dumbbell bench press and finish off with dumbbell flyes. Do 3 - 4 sets of 6 - 10 reps of the above exercises with a decent weight and I'll bet that you'll feel and see a difference.

    Try to post a video with your execution form.

    The reasons in wich you thing you're stagnating could be multiple, between them is Peterk's advice.

    Learn as much as possible and try to be patient, 3 months is a short period of time.
