bench 3 sets x 12 10 8

incline and decline 2 sets of each

cable cross overs 2 sets

Way overkill, reduce your volume by at least 1/2. Focus on pound progression. Whatever you're eating now - double it.

You haven't really given a whole lot of info but if you're like the typical guy that asks about his chest in the gym, the above advice should start to see it take shape. As for how long til a 'decent' chest. Your opinion of what's decent is probably different to mine :)

How long hve you been training?

Im only about a year in myself but it looks to me like you are doing way too much. If you have just started just bench and try and gradually up the weight.

My chest/delts wo

4-5 sets flat db

3 sets incline

4 sets db press

And maybe 2 sets light high reps mil press

Sometimes a set of flies to flush blood

My chest is prob my most developed bodypart and my body certainly responded better to less is more in this area

If you have only been training a few months then doing 4 exercises on your chest in one session is overkill. And cables.. not for a beginner. You wont make progress.

Have a look into strong lifts and 5x5

I know it seems counter intuative but more does not necessarily mean more. Give it a go, if it doesnt work, ill get the beers in.
