Default OVT- Optimized Volume Training

OVT is actually a very sound program if anyone wants to shock their muscles for new growth. I'm going to use it after I'm done with my Max-OT training cycle. In my opinion, anyone who's serious into lifting should have at least two different programs to cycle so your muscles don't become stagnant. Personally, my training cycle looks like this:

2 months- Max-OT
2 months- OVT
1-2 months- Doubling back up. (Hitting each muscle twice a week, high volume)

The OVT Program:

DAY 1- Chest/Back

I only do like 15 sets per body part, 18 at the most. I gotta try both of those routines, I am not stuck at any point yet, so I thought why not stick with what's working for me.
