I am new to these forums and to the EDT workout. I am confused and somewhat intimidated by the workout. I have been working out and strength training for over 4 years now - and since I hit a plateau over the past 6 months - I would like to start this new EDT program. Problem is, however… I have yet to come up with (or find) a decent 3 day-a-week (or) 4-day-a-week workout routine for the EDT. Do you have any suggested routines that work?? Any advice,suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
Any split that allows you to pair muscles that are fairly well spaced will be fine for a beginner to EDT IME…
That said… it is HARD. I also only use it for certain goals… if someone wanted size i would not opt for that personally - although muscle is of course built on the program.
An ntagonist workout is a classic EDT template but i found it flawed… The arm day is considerably easier than the chest and back day for example! But totally do-able… and the arm day gives a feeling of a slightly lower intensity or volume day, without that actually being the case:
If you want it intense you can pair two exercises that use the same muscle - but that is not for a full workout but more for a one off punishment for… missing a meal or some such…
I haven’t used ED for a long time actually - there is an ED article (or 5) on this site that tell you how to create sessions IIRC…
So here is the Routine I have come up with so far. Does this sound like a good routine to you (based off what I have read and suggested routines by the creator himself).
Bent Rows/Bumbell Military Press
Seated Calf Raise/Back Squat
Leg Extension/Leg Curls
Lat Pulldowns/Close Grip Bench
Straight Arm Pulldown/Plate Raise
EZ-Bar curl/Lying reverse tricep extension
Thanks again for the help!!
I like DB I.Bench and DB Chest Supported Row…because you do the bench then flip yo ass over and go. I’ll take a 10rm and pump out 5-6 reps, flip over continue. Get in 10 sets in 15 minutes. The first 5 fly by… My first time through I did the first 5 sets in 5 minutes…and the last 5 sets in 10 minutes. It’s a “different” workout.
