[quote]In my numerous questions to Charles he has stated that 2 PR zones are usually enough. That was as of last week. Hopefully Charles will eventually weigh in on the question for you.
He must be busy because he hasn’t had one of his own newsletters out in quite awhile. Again in those article’s he has said 1 core and 2 PR zones. Help Charles!!! :-)[/quote]
I think you may want to re-read your posts. Your original question to Charles was about combining EDT with a total body approach. I’m sure his single reply that stated:
“I think you could probably do (2) 15-minute PR Zones per workout. In some cases 3 is optimal, but 2 is often plenty”
was specific to your EDT adaptation, not to the “Lose The Fat, Keep The Strength: Escalating Density Training For Body Comp Breakthroughs” article.
