This is a great program. What I really like about Jeff’s programs in general is that he walks through not only the exercise, but how to do them to maximize their effectiveness, using proper form to avoid injury.
Very thorough content
Improved fitness and functionality
Great program with different levels of each stage to challenge anyone.
Really enjoyed that program. Did it once so far, will definetely add it in my cycle of programs!
You Get What You Asked For
There is no escaping the growth with this. Give your all to keep up with the program, you will demolish and rebuild yourself from the ground up! This is a high volume training method with interesting twists every step of the way. The program overloads in ways you never thought about. After the third week my results started becoming visible.
Excellent strength building program
I have worked through several Athlean programs. They are all excellent and this is yet another great 90 day program to build strength and add lean muscle
Great way to develop the lifts and muscle. The first two months where especially challenging and muscle stimulating. The last month was something different and although had some interesting ideas I didn’t feel I could pull it of in terms of muscle gains.
Be Ready to Work, a Sneaky Program!
I finished Max Shred a few years ago, so I decided to give Max Size a try. It was so much better than what I had assumed it would be. This program made me feel the good kind of burn in my stubborn muscles. My favorite was the 3rd phase, it was structured in a way that allowed me to push past my limits especially with the way the concentric and eccentric work is designed.
Definitely seeing results after the tough 3 months – time to cut!
Was able to shred 15 lbs and increase muscle definition even at my age (49). Stick to the diet plan and you’ll see the gains. Instructional videos are straight to the point and will help you master the exercises.
The program average 5 days per week with each workout clocking in between 10 minutes (for some intense conditioning work) to about 60 minutes (depending on your ability to withstand the finishers!)
Both Max/Shred and Max/Size will require equipment. While there is a great deal of bodyweight training programmed, you will need the basics for a home gym such as some dumbbells, an adjustable bench, resistance band, pullup bar, and a barbell to complete the exercises as they are programmed.
That said, as with AX-1, exercise swaps can be made to overcome the lack of a barbell with dumbbell adaptations coming in as suitable replacements.
The Max/Size program is not designed to be fit into the existing AX-1 schedule or any other A-X workout, as it is a stand alone program with the perfect amount of volume included to achieve the goal of maximum fat loss without loss of strength or size.
There has been a dramatic shift in recent years towards heavier training being advocated for women. This is great! That said, in a rush to do so, poor programming has resulted in many women getting hurt and injured from the improper guidance on how to do that. Max/Size provides you with the safest, most structured approach to lifting heavier so you can add lean toned muscle without sacrificing femininity. The program can also be used in succession with Max/Shred to reap the benefits of both maximum fat loss and lean muscle development should you choose to do so.
The Max/Size and Max/Shred programs are not designed to be performed at the same time, as they are stand alone 12 week programs, allowing you to focus your effort on one goal at a time. That said, they were designed to build off of each other and work perfectly when done in succession!
Whether you want to focus on fat loss or lean muscle gain first, the other program will smoothly pick up where one leaves off allowing you to create your own physique over 24 weeks!
Max/Size is designed to do one thing better than any other program, build muscle.
That said, with it's strategies rooted in the science of muscle growth and ensuring the intensity in every workout is high enough to create it…Max/Size can help even the hardest of hard gainers to put on muscle. The importance of recovery is key, and often overlooked by those eager to pack on the gains. Not in Max/Size.
That is a term that is often relied on to place an artificial limit on what you can achieve with your physique. Most of the time, even the most seasoned of lifters find that they have another level of intensity that they simply have not tapped into (because it’s damn hard!).
Max/Size gives you no choice but to train in that realm…and in doing so, delivers results for anyone who dares tackle it!
