Charles Staley EDT

Thinking about giving this a whirl when i fancy a change from my current 5*5 in a couple of months. Has anyone tried it? Any feedback? I am a fan of staley's stuff, it is usually pretty sound.

    How long have you been doing the 5x5 for?

    What's the EDT (escalating density training? IIRC) routine like?

    Thanks for the reply YIB, i thought I was on my own here! I've been doing the 5*5 for a couple of months and will definitely be sticking with it for a good while longer yet; I am just always interested in other routines:methods. I haven't bought Staley's book yet but EDT basically involves taking two movements (say bench and chins) and trying to get as many reps of each in a certain time (say 15 minutes) by doing alternating sets with say a 10 rep max.

    eg do say 5 reps on the bench, 5 chins, back to bench etc until at the end I guess you are doing singles or doubles with a rest before changing exercises.

    I think this is the idea, but as I say, I'll probably get the boo and give it a try in afew months when I fancy a change.

    by the way, if you want to know how my 5*5 is going, please pop in to my journal. All comments welcome!
