    Hello! I'm a relative workout noob. I've been lifting on and off (mostly off) the last couple of years and I'd like to have my new program checked. I used to do isolation exercises that my friends were doing but I've learned that those're not efficient at all.

    Feel free to correct anything you see wrong as I really am learning along the way.

    About Me:
    Male
    20yrs old
    5'6
    currently about 146lbs

    Goals:
    Get stronger for BJJ (moved up a weight class from 64lbs to 70lbs because I hate cutting)
    Get Buff!!

    Here's what I've done so far:

    (I know the dates are pretty random, that's because I had a hard time balancing schoolwork, training and lifting, will try to lift more consistently from now on)

    (If you see I've decreased weight/reps, that's because I've corrected my form somehow)

    (If I can't finish an exercise because of fatigue or if an injury starts acting up, I will take on an easier exercise to be able to complete the number of sets I want for that part)

    (EDIT: All these are done with a bench, 2 dumbbells (no space for barbells in my room), a Perfect Pullup machine and a Perfect Pullup Machine)

    Welcome to the logs! When you write "4 Deadlift 130lbs 7 reps" does that mean 4 sets of deadlifts using 130 lb, 7 reps per set?

    Have you heard of Ross Enamait? You might want to check him out since you don't have access to a barbell right now. RossTraining.com Blog

    Here's a sample of his stuff:

    Yeah that's what I mean. Sorry for the formatting.

    Also yes, I've heard of him, but I haven't gone in depth in his site yet. will look into it more. But so far is my current "program" decent enough?

    Thanks!
