Three days a week would be too much, plus I recommed splitting up the workouts and working out twice a week. Drop the isoloation exercises for now. The rep ranges are a personal prefernce, you have to find what works best for you. I prefer the 5-6 range. If you’re new to HIT/HD then I’d stick with 2 sets, you won’t get much out of 1 set. Really training to failure takes time to learn. If you’ve been training with higher volume then there was no way you were really training to failure. Try this twice per week:

Workout A

1. Squat 2 x 5-20

2. Bench press 2 x 5-15

3. Chins or pulldowns 2 x 5-15

4. Calf raise 1-2 x 5-20

5. Crunches 1 x 5-20

Workout B

1. Deadlift 2 x 5-15

2. Military press 2 x 5-15

3. Barbell curl 2 x 5-15

4. Close grip bench press or dips 1-2 x 5-15

5. Reverse barbell curl 1×5-15

This workout has work for everyone I know who has tried it. And make sure you’re eating enough.

Also I recommend reading Mike Mentzer’s books and also highly recommend the books Beyond Brawn and The Insider′s Tell-All Handbook on Weight-Training Technique by Stuart McRobert. Learn what they have to say, eat enough food and you’ll pack on the mass.
