    What are you goals? Mass, strength, some of both?
    Are you a hard gainer/easy gainer?
    Are you following a meal plan - counting calories and macros?

    Max-OT is a good basic strength routine. It uses low reps/heavy weights and low volume. IMO this is good for young beginners since they are typically keen but train for too long. Add up the energy reqs for marathon workouts with the already increased energy needs for growing and many young novices don't eat enough to grow unless they count cals or eat a lot of junk food. A low volume routing like Max OT helps by helping keep physical energy expenditure low.

    What have you done up until now and what do you seem to respond to most? You should start tracking you calories more, lack of calories is behind most mass gaining plateaus in my experience, with ****ty training a far second.

    yep thats a great program, i did that when i was 16-17, it helped me a lot, but after a while the squats killed me knees, to the point i couldn't walk because my joints were over stressed, i wasn't putting that much weight up on squats either.. but my bench went up a lot.

    Your form on those squats may have been off...squats done right generally wont hurt the knees at all.

    I love MaxOT training. Ive been using it since I starting lifting and Ill still hit it up a few times a year. Short and sweet, and it works.
