I lifted for the first time this summer using a linear periodization method. I made some gains, but since coming here, I’ve learned the linear periodization isn’t a great way to lift. So, I started shopping around, looking for other programs.
I like EDT because a) it looks like it will be fun, b) seems relatively simple, and c) it looks like it’s going to kick my ass. It’ll also fit pretty well into my schedule. The thing is, in reading about the periodization program I did, one of the things it mentioned was that you shouldn’t ever not complete a set, as this will train your CNS to fail (or something similar). This is what had me worried.
I’ve decided on EDT for Fat Loss, as I definitely need to lose some fat. I’ll be doing the T-Dawg diet too. The only reason I was in a “mad rush” was because the active rest period ended yesterday and I’m excited to be lifting again.
Is there any way to frame your EDT for Fat Loss program in a four times per week schedule?
