MAX-OT

There seems to be a lot of talk on the American boards about Max-OT. It seems the first thing that's recommended to any beginner a lot of the time.

I think that maybe it's sucess is due to the fact that it tells people what they want to hear i.e. workout every day, drink a magic potion and boom, you'll look like a bodybuilder.

Here's the link if you haven't seen it.

So marks out of 10:
10 being very good and 1 being very poor

How high or low do you rate MAX -OT and it would be good if you could expand on why you like or dislike it.

    I would like to bump this.
    Signed up a few days ago, currently reading it.
    Would like to hear feedback who completed the program.

    It's sucess is based on it being an off the shelf, one-size fits all packaged soultion. No confusing differences of opinion etc. For someone who doen't want to get bogged down with the details of bodybuilding I think it's a good program esp for the Mens Health refugee's and alike.

    Two thing I don't like;
    1. The way is slags off magazines for being in the pocket of supp companies and then proceeds to push AST products LMAO!

    2. The statement in the conclusion 'there is only one "best and most effective" way to train and that's Max-OT' - Utter rubbish and this discredits the whole program somewhat in my eyes.

    Basicaly, you could do a lot worst than follow Max-OT for 6 months.

    9...maybe 10

    ive been doin it for 4 months (beeen working out for almost three years, 1.5 year properly)
    i love it for the short workout times, massive strength gains, decent mass gains
    the funny looks when u warm up at 1 rep then rest for 2 mins..
    have tried other styles of training but so far this has been my most productive.

    a trainer at my gym did recomend upping the reps every 3rd week, just for that week,
    cos my gains have slowed down, just to shock the body and get a real hard pump,that you dont get
    with max ot .

    may give it a try but scared to deviate from what has worked so well

    DOIN IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER
    OR AT LEAST IT SEEMS.......

    I can squeeze the whole thing into a 4 day split, leaving arms to the 5th day, and then only on an 'as-needed' basis.

    Other than that, I follow the MAX precepts as closely as possible.

    I read that whole thing a while ago. I didn't realise that it was suggesting a 5 day split. I guess I missed something in there. I remember it talked down muscle mags and isolation exercises a lot. Some of the information though is good I think.

    What's the "american site?"

    Don't do this. If you want to shock your body, tell it a dirty story.

    A 'pump' does very little to help you gain muscle or strength. So training for a pump is pointless other than as an ego thing. OK, once in a while is alright if you feel the need, but every three weeks is ott imo.

    Keeping a focus on increasing the weights your using is vastly more important than any so-called shock casused by increasing reps.
