    Hi,

    I've been following the Max-OT training guide, and it's great. Excellent detail about how to go about exercises and why. What it does not really mention in depth is how to incorporate cardio.

    I know it says to do cardio 8-12 hours before or after your workout for 30 minutes, but it doesn't say how to do this - e.g. interval training, etc.

    Any thoughts? John?

    I used Max-OT weight training. On weight training days, I will do mid-range cardio. On my off days, I will do HIIT.

    On mid-range days, I run for 45 minutes, not 30. So far this has been quite effective for both shedding fat and maintaining muscle.

    hey famous,

    i havent tried max ot yet, but have read a lot about it and will do in the near future, but mild cardio on training days and hiit on off days isnt that a bit too much?

    Nah, it's not too much (for me, anyhow). Like I said, I haven't lost any strength (which leads me to believe I've maintained a large part of, if not all of, my muscle mass). I've even added size to my calves and thighs while cutting.

    When you say "workout," do you mean what I do for cardio or lifting?
