Whats your plan? You going to pursue this for 19 days as he recommends or just stick with the template and keep adding weight each week?
Also from your lift stats it looks like you are too cautious with the barbell rows, 135 x 5 should be less than a warm up for you unless you feel you lose form with heavier weight.

when I was doing the 5x5 that was my last max I may be too cautious I will add more weight.

I will do this for the 19days then goto ABBA.

I was wondering if Isopure was the protein to go with. I was told to get a whey and a casein but how necessay is that? Please help a guy out.

Well, I suppose something like Metabolic Drive would be ideal. I know a few guys who swear by it in my university gym, but not for me till I get out of grad school and start a real job.

AFAIK you waste “pure whey” when you take it any other time beside post lifting and AM so a combination of whey and casein would be ideal for various reasons.

IF your finances do not allow, try a combination like half a scoop of whey in water and fat free cheese strings with some fish oil caps and a handful of nuts (Protein + fat meal) or if you have a fast metabolism (unlike me) then maybe whey mixed in a glass or two of milk?
