There seem to be lots of questions regarding EDT, so here are mine.
First, I understand that CS recommends no more than 8 weeks of EDT before taking a break and switching to something else for a while. BUT, does that 8 week stretch consist of the same EDT routine? OR, can I do 1 EDT routine the first 4 weeks, then switch to a different EDT routine for the second 4 weeks? By switching I mean different exercises and maybe a different A-B split.
Second, How often should I be trying to break my PRs? For example, if I’m using an A-B split 3 days a week, where my ‘A’ session falls on Monday and Friday, do I try to break my PRs from Monday ON Friday? Just wondering how frequent the PRs should be tested.
Third, I know CS says you can start with a number of reps other than 5 reps with a 10RM. Can you mix this up? Using an A-B split 3 days a week, but alternating between starting with a high RM and a low RM. Something like…
This would slow down how often you break a particular session’s PRs. Is that good or bad?
