Otto Montgomery’s Training Style
Otto trains five or six days out of the week, doing cardio in the morning, and weight training in the evening.
The number of his cardio sessions vary greatly; he completes them five to six times when preparing for a contest. But only one to two times per week when he’s in the off-season.
As for Otto’s weight training sessions, he typically starts them with a lot of load and intensity – performing three to four heavy sets per exercise.

Getting Protein from Everywhere
Otto likes to get his protein from different sources; not just meat and dairy.
He includes big quantities of foods such as peas, brown rice, hemp powder, and beans in his diet; believing they are just as good for muscle building as other protein sources.

One of the foods Otto doesn’t like eating very much is fish. However, he says that during the in-season, he eats it almost on a daily basis.
The reason for this is because fish is rich in protein, and low in fats and carbs; making it an ideal food for fat loss and preserving lean muscle mass.
During the off-season, however, Otto doesn’t eat almost any fish. Instead, he gets his protein from other lean sources such as chicken breast, low-fat cottage cheese, red beans, and egg whites.
