    Escalating Density Training

    Has anyone here tried EDT it's meant to be really effective for gaining mass. For those unfamiliar with it the principles are as follows.

    -You have a set time interval (2x20 minutes) in which you complete as many reps as possible for a particular exercise
    -This is done over several sets and usually with a relatively light weight to begin with
    -The following week the goal is to break the previous weeks rep record
    -As long as every week you continue to increase the number of reps in the same time interval you will continue to gain mass.

    Here's the link for those who are interested in reading further about the program. I look forward to hearing people's opinions.

    Edt

    I've tried Phase II. It was split into three 15 min. zones rather than two 20 min. zones. I liked it okay, but I had to use Hammer Strength and other machines since I workout alone.

    Basically, I found my 10RM on all exercises and then did as many sets of 5 reps as I could, back and forth, non-stop. When I couldn't get five reps, I would drop down to four, and so on.

    I would recommend EDT to someone who wants to put on some mass, but just from reading, HST seems better. I have nothing to base this on, because I've never run HST. It's just a feeling I've got.

    And yes, John, keeping up with the rep count while doing a non-stop 15 minute superset is a bitch.

    I've attached a text file that shows the exercises I used. I ran this for four weeks. This is converted from Excel, so it might be a little difficult to follow due to formatting.
