    Quick question about Max-OT

    I read the Max-OT workout, and I was wondering if anyone has tried it and what kind of results they got from it. It seemed a little skimpy compared to my normal routine, even though my routine has some components of Max-OT in it already, such as break time, and reps/set. Trouble is, I'm not going to take my workout from 2 hours to 30 minutes unless I'm convinced it will work for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, I know I sound like a newbie, but what is HIT training, or where can I find info on it?

    Interesting article, but I think the overall message isn't all that revolutionary, just don't overtrain! And when you do train, train hard.

    I used the Max-Ot training a few months ago. It seems to work well, focusing on power movments, low rep/high weights. The warm-up routine is what is very different, using % of you max weight. Keep at it and see for yourself. Its something different.
