    Default is this a good bulking program?

    Copied this routine from other topics and changed a bit.

    Mon- Pull:
    deadlift 3 x 5
    BB row 3 x 5-8
    Pullups 3 x 8
    DB rows 3 x 10
    Incline DB curls 3 x 10

    Wed- Push:
    Flat bench 3 x 5
    Incline db bench 3 x 8-10
    military press 3 x 8
    dips(weighted) 3 x 5-10
    inc db flyes 3 x 10
    inc bb french press 3 x 10

    Fri- Legs/Abs
    Front squat 3 x 5
    Bulgarian split squat w/ dbs 3 x 10
    Leg curls 3 x 10
    Single leg calf raise /w dip belt 3 x 10
    Hanging leg raises 3 x 10
    Renegade row 3 x 5

    I still want to bulk. Just need a solid routine, but i consider myself still as an intermediate so I seek for any advice from more advanced ppl. Thank you! Sory for my english

    Looks like a fairly good plan.

    and do you think i should take every set to failure? some people say so... at the moment im reaching failure only on last set. 2 preceding sets are hard, but 1-2 reps shy of concentric failure. i find that if i go to failure in 1st set, my later sets are much worse and i overall do less workload that way.

    I don't think failure is a useful tool. I think it promotes bad form and possibly even injury if not done correctly.

    None of your exercises say to go to failure. They all have very reasonable rep ranges associated with them.

    Agreed, though training to failure does elicit some positive adaptations.

    My suggestion is to take your final set to failure in final week of the training program prior to an unloading week.
