thanks for the advice, Gavin.
I have some whole milk (with DHA too), whey protein from NOW foods, and a shaker for the PWO shakes. I live in a dorm room with a half-size fridge and microwave. I think the dorm does have a kitchen in the basement though.
I've been working out 3 times a week including push-ups, pull-ups and then things like chest presses, rows, and pull-downs. I alternate between a "chest" and a "back" workout basically. As for sets/reps I try to do 8-12 reps and keep the volume at 25+ reps per exercise. Workouts are no longer than 30mins.
I'll let you guys know if the PWO shake helps. I've already noticed some increased size since a few weeks ago, but I haven't been weighing myself consistently.
