For strength only athletes it should make up a good portion of their training program. Since strength athletes still need to work in the high rep ranges, this programs’ rules will emphasize building strength as well. However it can’t be the only workout used by strength athletes since they also need to work in the 8-12 rep range and 1-5 rep ranges. For fat loss it shouldn’t be the first program you choose since it really wasn’t designed to burn tons of calories. In my opinion there are much better programs that are geared towards fat loss. Although Max-OT is a very good and effective workout I would prefer Chad Waterbury’s high frequency system. This is a great program that will work on strength, size, and endurance. It uses a variety of techniques as oppose to just a few in the Max-OT program. It also utilizes different repetition ranges for maximum growth of all the three muscle fibers. The thing is that it will make a trainee more well rounded since it works endurance, strength, and size. The program also includes cardio so your getting different types of exercise.
