6 a week bulking routine
This is my first post. I would like to receive some opinions on my bulking routine. I hit the gym 6 times a week and eat anywhere from 2500-3000 calories a day with 120+ grams of protein (I vaporize alot of ganja and therefore cheat alot on my usually lean diet by eating large pizzzas and bottomless bags of popcorn). My ideal cutting weight is 185, my ideal bulking weight is 210-220. I've been trying to raise my bench, lat pull downs, seated row and leg press as much as possible. I like to get in the pool and do some sprints with the competitive swimmers, this is why I emphasize lat pull downs in my workouts and avoid squats (breaststroke knee.)
Lat Pull Down: 280
Leg Press: 600
Heres my routine. I usually do 3 sets for every exercise. Increasing intensity throughout each one.
BB Flat Bench,Incline,Decline
Dips,Peck Deck, Tripulldowns, Pushups till failure
Lat Pull Downs,Closegrip+Widegrip Seated Row,Chin Ups
Single Arm Bent Over rows, Back Raises
Leg Press, Ham curls, Quad extensions, calf raises, abductors, inductors, knee raises (machine). Bicycle crunches, Leg raises, Plank, Decline abs.
Thursday-Chest (emphasizing Triceps)
Close Grip BB Bench, Incline DB Bench,Decline DB bench, skullcrushers,dips,flys,single arm tricep pull downs.
Friday-Back (emphasizing Biceps)
Preacher BB curl, Preacher Single arm bicep curls, hammer curls, pull ups, closegrip seated row, Bent over row.
Military DB press, shrugs, lateral raises, assortment of light freeweight shoulder exercises.
Looking for suggestions regarding my routine to help me achieve my lifting goals. Thanks,

Stock up on tuna/chicken and whey protein. Getting whey in Canada can be expensive, it costs alot to get it shipped from US stores and the Canadian prices are absurd. You can pick up some 5 lbers for pretty reasonable.
Aim for 1g protein/lb bodyweight roughly atleast.

Ok, its gonna be tough getting 240 grams of protein everyday. I work from 10:45pm-7am (nightshift) I usually wake up around 4pm, eat "breakfast", go to the gym/pool, eat "lunch", see girlfriend and go to work at 10:30pm. I only eat a meal at work. during my "dinner" at 4:30 am lol. get home at 730, fall asleep at 8am. I rarely find time to sneak in snacks at work.
