i don’t post a lot, matter of fact i was only lurkin til now but yesterday i read Charles Staley’s article on EDT for the first time (talk about being late,ha?) and after that i read his ‘periodization that works’ article and now i have some questions.
while i understood the concept of both articles i wonder is it a good idea to start with the EDT but not in the 10RM range but in, let’s say 5-6 RM and do that kind of training for 6 weeks or so and then switch to EDT in 10RM range? my reasoning behind this is that would create strength foundation and later on doing EDT in 10RM range would enable more muscle gains?
i’ve recently been quite sick, and had a few injuries so my strength is not really something to be proud of…that’s why i thought this kind of approach would be a good idea…any suggestions? feel free to call me utterly stupid if you think this post has no sense but also give some reason as to why not do it like this.
also, if it’s already been discussed i’d appreciate some directions where to look at!
that’s all, thanks in advance
