Max-OT Exercises – Part 3
This week I am going to detail the leg and calf exercises most suitable for Max-OT training and the leg and calf exercises that are not suitable. I am also going to detail the Max-OT routine Jeff Willet used to win the Team Universe Championships. This will show you in detail how one of the best natural bodybuilders in the world uses Max-OT to pack on muscle and strength.
I would like to start this week off with a little review of the understandings and misunderstandings of building muscle and how it either stalls your progress or propels it forward.
No matter how structured our training programs are, over time we always seem to stray from what works. All in search of more. More size, more strength, more results. Unfortunately, as time goes on and training experience increases most people regress their training effectiveness. They work harder and longer for less returns.
How many times have you trained with someone new and did a different exercise from your normal routine? Afterwards you reflect back and think how awesome that exercise was. You also wonder how long it’s been since you last did it and why it’s been so long.
In the quest to build muscle, most people who train are their own worst enemy.
It’s very easy to get carried away with your training. And unfortunately it’s human nature to train in a manner that’s counterproductive to muscle growth.
“More is better”. At least that’s how it is in just about every aspect of life. The more you study and learn the smarter you become. The more you practice at a particular activity or sport the more skilled you become. The more money you accumulate the richer your become. In weight training however, there is a distinct inverse correlation, after a specific threshold, the more you train the less muscle you will build.
Now these are broad statements that have many contributing factors, but the underlying foundation of these statements is rock solid. When you are trying to build muscle, more is not better.
