What you need to be doing is to drink at MINIMUM 1/2 gallon a day of whole milk (no less than 2%). It's not expensive and is an excellent source of cals. A gallon of milk is roughly 180-200 grams of protein right there. I buy my milk in bulk for $5 per 2 gallons. So I spend around $15 or so a week. Now combine that with a few protein shakes, and at least 3-4 whole food meals and you got yourself some muscle.

Since you're only 135, a half gallon of whole milk is good to go. Your goal is to finish it by the end of the day. Put it in cereal, mix your protein shakes in it, whatever..Just keep chipping away at it.

That's my .02, and what got me where I'm at.

Well I took your advice and ran out bought 2 gallons. I see it being no problem to get a 1/2 gallon down a day. I also ran out to buy more protien while I was at it. I'm pretty excited about this program and want to gain some serious weight.

Man it's good to see another youngster out there as well as myself who's serious about lifting. Good to hear that you're doing Bill Star's 5x5. I just finsished doing about 9 weeks on the same routine but instead of deadlifts I did powercleans. I like powercleans better than deadlifts. But yeah I have made some good gains out of my "cycle" it that's what it's called. I'm new to all this lingo. My signature tells what gains I made so you can have an idea of what I got out of Bill Star's routine. I could have made some bigger gains if I would have eaten more. I thought I was eating alot, but in reality I actually wasn't. Just make sure that you eat alot of food while on this workout. It's a very high intensity workout IMO. I think I might do what 0311 suggested to you about the milk thing. Alright well I hope you keep us updated on your progress.

Blah good and bad day

Squat-70x5 70x5 70x5 80x5 95x3 70x8
Bench-115x5 120x5 125x5 130x4 140x1
I messed up in bench today I'm thinking I have my weight increments to close together and get tired out too fast. Monday I plan to switch to 10lb increments.
Deadlift-100x5 105x5 110x5 115x5 125x3
Dips 0x8 10x8 10x8
Biceps-50x8 60x8 60x8
Skull crushers-30x8 40x8 40x8

A mess up in the bench, but everything else went alright. As far as my diet is concerned I'm eating a meal every 1-2 hours protien has got to atleast be 200-250 grams and im not shy eating carbs either best guess atleast 200 but probably more I have ahrder time keeping track of that.
