    I would start lifting seriously for a while before doing either. Use at least a month or two of serious lifting to monitor your diet and weight, and get it consistant. Then adjust your diet carefully...

    If you really want to beat this guy. Train using 1-3 reps, with your maximum weight, using the machine. Rest well between sets. Eat lots, you need to put on weight for this.
