View Full Version : 8Th Week MAX-OX Journal
04-06-2004, 11:48 AM
In my 8th week of Max-ot. Great program so far. Being distracted by serious domistic sh#t and beginning to lose focus. It's a real battle at times. I will acomplish this goal and I will show in Sept. My biggest battle is my eating habits. With this outside distraction it is affecting my diet. When stressed I don't eat. I try to play catch up at the end of the day but that's stupid. I find myself slammin down protine shakes to supplement soilds, but that's what is working for me right now. Everyday I face this same challange. I'm also seeing loss of some weight. Have dropped 5 lbs. Didn't even come close to my mass gain goal of 195. Made it to 180 but now at 175.

You bet there has been results.

I could go on but I just want to show people the gains made by following this program. It did prove a fact to me which is Less is Best (time in the gym).
Last night was Shoulders and Traps. This is a shorter routine than the rest. Had failure on DB seated presses but made everything else. I didn't eat well yesterday and could feel it at the gym no doubt. Today is a better day. Leggs tonight.

Were you a beginner when you started the program or an experienced lifter?
I'm in my 2nd week of Max O/T and I too am trying to shed fat and increase strength. Hope I see similar results.

I had been lifting for about a year. The prob was I was overtraining, thus no real gains. I was turned on to MAX-OT and off I went.
