The routine someone’s doing isn’t the only thing that’s giving or holding him back from getting results.
Just because someone did this and didn’t get results, doesn’t make it a poor way to train.
Nutrition, rest and intesity play a big role in getting results.
I like the way Mike Robertson answered one of his interview questions when asked what he thinks the number one mistake most people make:
"The number one mistake I see people making is not working hard enough. I?ve seen people make gains on every training program imaginable: A 1x20 Super Squats program, 5x5, 3x3, a Westside-style split, everything. What is the unifying factor in all those programs? Someone busted their ass to make gains.
I firmly believe you can take a decent program and have great success if you work hard. However, you could have the most perfect program imaginable and if you don?t train hard, you won?t see nearly the same amount of progress. People make it out to be a lot more difficult than it needs to be, sometimes."
I can’t wait to try EDT for myself, but I think it’s difficult in a gym, crouded or not. I hate being a machine/station hog, and it would piss me off even more if someone wanted to cut in when I’m trying to beat a previous PR (even though they have every right to use the equipment too).
I’ll have my own home gym one day and will probably try this out then.
