I'll analyze the 'Max-OT' sometime, when I have its complete facts before me. Until then I can only call it 'questionable' IMO
-I understand. I thought it questionable at first as well. I was used to hitting my muscles twice a week. But, can't argue with results. My biceps grew almost an inch to nearly 19" cold in 5 weeks. My shoulders grew huge, enabling me to do 70 lb dumbbell side laterals with near perfect form. (I used to use the 45-50 dumbbells before the program) Plus, my biggest concern with the program was the whole 30-45 minutes max in the gym for 7-9 total sets. I'm actually starting back up with the
program so consider me the "Martin Luther King" of Max-OT.
Oh, and I was kidding about Mongolia/Portugal! I'm a northern european mutt. ;)
-Your program looks the exact same as the program I used in my Max-OT journal. Just remember that plagarism is a crime...
-I can see where you're coming from about the three days of arms. But, the way I see it, he's indirectly working his arms the first two days of the week, and shoulders really don't work the arms with the exception of presses. I view it as the first three days are a good warmup keeping his arm strength until the end of the week when he blasts them. My new schedule looks like this:
For my shoulders day, I won't need to hit my rear delts too hard because they got blasted doing back (ie heavy barbell rows, ect.) I also put bi's/tri's at the end of the week because my favorite triceps exercise is close grip bench, which will work my chest as well. From there I have 4 days of rest before chest pops up again.
Any questions, feel free to post them in my Max-OT journal. It has alot of great info about the workouts, the progress, and a segment from the two IFBB pro's that swear by this. ;)
