I thought I would collect links to different training protocols and put it here for everyone interested in trying them out.

I'll keep this a living thread, and add links as we go along.

Max-OT  http://ast-ss.com/max-ot/max-ot_intro.asp
(Please note that the supplement company AST is behind this protocol, and thus it has its fair share of supplement marketing)
Here's a link to the complete protocol, without having to sign up...

HST and Max-OT are said to work for anyone. I like the looks of both of the programs and will start Max-OT on Monday. I just chose it because I like the rep/set scheme and there is no "planning" neccessary. Its all laid out. I would say HST is more for experienced lifters because its a little more complex. But, IMO you cant go wrong with either.

Peace!

P.S. I will be testing HST after a few cycles through Max-OT to campare which is better for me.

I favor HIT/Heavy Duty. More time efficient, more recovery time. I never grew training more than 3 days a week- 4 at the most for a few weeks only. HST would be my second choice, the other is too many lifting days a week for me, no time to recover the whole system.

FYI

As most of you may know, most manufactures make their equipment overseas (China).  All steel products that are currently being sold here in the U.S. that are made in China are going to take a price increase within the next few months.  Some things already have.  There's many reasons for this but if your looking for anything from a set of dumbbells to a home workout system...the prices are going to go up.

I feel because of the huge importing we do from china...this could affect a lot of different products in the home not just weights.  





Actually, steel prices are skyrocketing all over the world and China is the place where they are likeliest to stabilize. China has twice the steel output capacity as America and it has the predominant coke export license for the EU. On top of that, they actually purchase the most  steel from the US-larger orders get better prices. Smaller American contractors are feeling the pinch so much more (especially since they are feeling it in other building materials like wood, as well as gas.). Prior to Bush lifting export tariffs, steel prices were rid-ic-u-low, steel manufacturers were barely surviving, but they've shot up almost 100% a ton in the past six months. The "steel shortage" is symptomatic of a soft economy and only temporary. Steel prices are reset every month while steel orders are usually long term contracts, so its unlikely that consumer products will be noticeably affected.


Topic? Doggcrapp-has anyone used this? It sounds scientifically unsound. Maybe I'm missing something ,but even if you're doing another exercise you're still working the same bodypart. So you're still defeating the point of recovery, right?

So..... HST and max-ot are identical and very good.... i am going on max-ot the start of june or somewhere in around there.  They both have the same fundamentals except max-ot benefits from increasing your maximum by incorporating 2 inclimations sets... if ur max was 275... with 3 warmup sets, 2 inclimation sets, and 3 heavy sets.... you should be able to put up 285lb on flat bench by yourself from 4-6 reps with positive failure.

Which is better to you guys, HST or max-ot?

No. They are not identical.

Not really. HST will for one have you train either full body workouts, or split the body in two. Further, you will work every musclegroup at least 3 times a week. Not the case with Max-OT.

Lots of differences.

I've tried Max-OT. And currently I have been using HST for little over a year. IMO, HST is more effective.

The upside to Max-OT is how it all is laid out for you. It will take a little more effort to get into HST.

Go with your planned training. It will most likely yield great results.

Try HST. I use a combination of Westside principles and Max-OT principles in my training regime.

They seem similar in thought so I don't see how can you combo them, unless you are speaking in terms of the exercise methodology.  Please explain.

I already have bodybuilding.com up.  I like the other two as well.

What do you think yo or others.  Should I keep it to 3 or should I just keep it as a list?

I agree with wolverine.  A program is only a part of the picture.  It depends on the factors wolverine provides below as well as your recovery ability and lifestyle.  Neither Max-OT nor HST would work well for someone with a high stress 55-60 hour week job and family say, unless you kept the volume low in each session.  

Poliquin wrote over at t-mag a few years ago that many fail to take into account that training frequency changes over time --- there will be periods where you would do best doing 2 X a week while there might be (albeit for shorter duration) periods where you do 4-5 days per week.  The scientific literature has found that working your body 2X a week promotes the most benefit.

Lastly, over at bodybuilding.com, there is an interesting articles called "Strength Deficit" which offers a neat test and formula (very simple) to check if you would beenfit more from a workout with hypotrophy or strength/power emphasis.  

In parting, my best advice when evaluating a program is for the all to check out exercise prescription templates they offer.  You may not agree with their llow volume training philosophy BUT the templates are constructed well and their information is helpful (plus they have GREAT illustrations and decent descriptions of weight exercises).  

PS As for my preference -- HST as it avoids overprescribing exercises and set/rep routines, allowing the trainee to tailor a program to fit his abilities.  The only drawback is the trainee may fall into the habit of overdoing some exercises.
