I’m ready for flaming v. posting a pic what must I improve on?

serious replies please, this is not the main forum. I put it in here for a reason.
are u even working out? work on everything, including legs
you look like you do moderate cardio, eat semi-clean, and do a lot of high rep ab work.

eat clean, start lifting on a 3/4 day split, and oh, eat clean.

Post stories of wierd requests you have rec’d in the gym

This is prompted by an experience I had this weekend. I was spotting Mrs. on the bench. The bench is right next to the preacher curl thing. This African dude asked me, in broken English, for "help."

So, thinking he needs a spot, I walk over. He asked me to put one hand on his shoulder and the other on his chin and push back while he twists his head So I’m thinking maybe he has a crick or something…then he asks me to do the other side.

No requests have ever been "that" strange before.

Training to failure?

I haven’t posted much in f+n but I lurk pretty regularly in here. I just wanted to hear some opinions on training to failure? I’ve always assumed that pushing more weight > more sets but I figure it’s time to ask some people who are in the know.

In the past I’ve been a 3×10 guy who wanted to always get that tenth one out.The last month I’ve just been upping the weight and pushing whatever I can. Be it 8, 6, hell even 3 and I’ve noticed a big strength gain in the past month.

Critique my routine/schedule

Ive been lifting pretty consistently for the last couple months following about a year of inconsistent lifting (due to school). Right now Im going about 6-7 times a week. Ive noticed an increase in definition in my arms, back, shoulders, abs and legs in the last 2 months due to my routine but I havent really been getting bigger even though I tend to do relatively heavy weight. I thought I would throw out my routine and get suggestions from you guys. Here it is:

Day 1: Chest/Bis
Dumbell Flat Bench (1 warmup, 4 increasing weight, 1 high rep low weight)
