I train in a 4-6 repetition range using the Max-OT principles. I select a weight that allows me to get at least 4 reps on my own but no more than 6.
GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is an amino acid that has been shown to increase growth hormone levels, enhance recovery, increase muscle mass, reduce body fat, and help promote restful sleep.
I read that most of your Max-OT workouts last between 30 and 45 minutes. I usually do six sets per body part (which is working much better than the 9-12 sets I used to do) and my workouts generally last closer to 20 minutes. Is this okay? I rest two to three minutes between sets like I’m supposed to.
Doing excessive set volume and extending the duration of your workout is counter productive to muscle gains from both physiological and mental standpoints.
I really want to focus on my upper chest development and I was thinking of raising the bench so the incline is a lot steeper. Is that a good way to really target the upper chest?
I recommend starting your chest workout with 3 sets of an incline movement, bar or dumbbell and keep the angle of the incline at about 25-30 degrees.
