    Well after looking around i figured i'de finally start my own training Log so here goes nothin. I've basically been on a mission to gain as much size as possible for the last 8 months or so and so far i've gone from my original size of 5'7 140 pounds up to a current 161 pounds. I currently train BJJ about 1-2x per week and am on a 3-day split so here it is:

    8/22

    Deadlift:
    -315x4
    -315x4

    BB Bent Over Rows:
    -255x6
    -255x6

    Reverse Grip Lat Pulldowns:
    -210x8
    -210x7

    Wide Grip Straight Bar Curls:
    -115x7
    -115x7

    Basically I work to failure on most movements (especially the big ones) and maintain rigid form. At the end of each workout i do 3 sets of heavy weighted ab excersises as well to keep that area strong as well. I have a high calorie/high protein diet and I hope to reach 170+ by the end of my winter bulk then shed down some pounds and then shred up some for the spring/summer season. Any feedback or constructive criticism is always welcome. I like to hear what people have to say to help steer me in the right direction.

    8/26

    BB Squats
    -195x8
    -225x4
    (completed all sets relatively easily so weight is def going up next week)

    Leg Press
    -6Platesx20
    (14reps,R/P then 6 more to finish)

    Seated Calves
    -50lbsx12
    (15second deep stretch at the bottom on each rep)

    Pull Thrusts
    -90x10
    -90x10

    Leg Extensions

    Leg curls

    My legs really were'nt feeling too pumped after the squats seeing as how i think i went to light so i threw in the extensions and curls. Next week i'm adding weight to both squat sets and that should do the trick. Heavy weighted abs as usual of course...

    I very much agree with you on this. I beleive that training to failure for the most part is the best way to train when looking to put on as much size and strength as possible. I do however variate from time to time throwing in a week of lighter training with higher rep ranges like 8-10 on most machines with weight that I know i'll hit those numbers. I do that one week of lighter weight training every 8 weeks to keep myself fresh and to give my body a week to recover periodically and it has been working great as of now. My numbers are as high as they've ever been and dont seem to be stopping anytime soon...

    8/31

    BB Wide Grip Flat Bench:
    -205x4
    -205x4
    (I was goin for 6 but couldnt hit my numbers again so if i dont hit them next week i need a change...)

    BB Wide Grip Incline Bench:
    -155x9
    -155x9
    (Assisted work, i hit like 9 and a half on both sets)

    BB Military Press:
    -135x6
    (goin for 10 but only hit 6 again, i think combining the incline then the military may not be the best idea but i'm not sure)

    Weighted Dips:
    -50x10

    Well i didnt hit my chest numbers this week again so i'm not sure what i'm gonna do if i dont get them again next week. Maybe some pause bench or what else i'm not sure (PB feel free to throw in some possible alternatives to what i'm doing to get me past this stuck spot i'm in) Other than that good workout and some more heavy heavy abs to close it out
