T Nation


Hey. Quick question. I’ve been reading from other guys on the forum about the reps they are getting on EDT. Something isn’t right with my training, because I can’t seem to get those rep numbers up. In 20 minutes, the most I’m able to pump out is about 35-40 reps of any given exercise. I’ve read the EDT instructions, and from what I gather, I should be starting with a weight that’ll let me complete about 6-7 reps, and then work down from there. How do you possibly hit 60 reps in only 20 minutes? I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions? I appreciate the feedback. Thanks.

You should be using a 10RM weight and only doing 5-7 reps a time. The ideal rep range is 50-65 total.
