You can for sure shorten the General conditioning period and the Max period before starting into ME workouts. Actually, anyone can go straight to ME without passing GO or collecting $200. It will still work. The General phase is for conditioning and health and safety for those without much strength background or with a long lay off. The Max will give you a better base upon which to add ME. If you are pretty strong then I’d say shorten Max and got o the more specific ME sooner. You’ll still get good gains. Very individual so you have to try and see how it works for you.
