You've asked pretty much the same question over and over here. Nothing is really changing and you're not really listening to any of the advice, to abbreviate, add more lat work in etc etc so I don't really get what else you want?

...and this is not the only site he continues to post it on either.

But since he asked, I don't know what place isolation exercises have in a mass gaining program? I'd use big heavy compounds and eat like a starving man. Save the "shaping" exercises for after the mass has been built.

Yeah same here. Big compounds as frequently as you can recover from. Eat good food and aim for a little weight gain every couple of weeks.

This stuff really isn't all that complicated, at least in the initial stages.

Failure is not needed. Streamline, remove most of the isolations, and focus on getting strong. Pull back to 3 training days.

Here's one possible suggestion, out of many:

So Titan, what you're saying is

Heavy ass barbell movements till you can barely move, then a buffet until you can't breath.

As opposed to

Buffet training and a salad.
