The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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.
