My EDT Program

Hey, guys. I’m starting EDT next week and I put together my own program. I’d appreciate it if you’d review it a bit, considering that I think Wednesday will carry over into Thursday and hurt my chest gains.

Also, not sure if the combination of these lifts will lead to excess fatigue, since I’ve included exercises that are more physically taxing than what Staley had prescribed. Tried to keep it mildly functional, too. I’ve recently become deathly afraid of leaving out rotator cuff work.

Monday: Lats/Triceps
A1. Wide Grip Chins
A2. Close Grip BP
B1. Bent Over Row
B2. EZ bar lying tricep extension

Tuesday: Lower Body unilateral/core
A1. One leg Squats
A2. Leg Curl
B1. One leg SLDL
B2. dumbell overhead lunge

Wednesday: Delts/Traps/Rotator Cuff
A1. Upright Row
A2. External Rotation
B1. Cuban Press
B2. Rack Pull/Shrug
B3. Rear Delt Row

Thursday: Chest/Biceps
A1. DB decline press
A2. Alternating DB incline curls
B1. Hammer Strength Bench Press
B2. Preacher Curl

Friday: Lower Body Bilateral/forearms
A1. Back Squat
A2. BB wrist curl
B1. RDLs
B2. BB reverse wrist curl

Thanks in advance.

Whao bro NO love the exercise etc but your going to burn out FAST!! i have done compounds with EDT and even with days off between have to back the heck off every three weeks or well go with lackluster intensity

check this thread out its about the program I did and CS chimed in a few times it should help

be prepared to EAT like a horse and rest as much as you can

Phill

awesome, thanks.

Here’s a revised schedule. I took out most of the stuff on the third day in favor of some lighter, less intense rotator cuff work. Also, I the stuff for back, considering my back isn’t quite strong enough to handle higher reps of wide grip pull ups.

Tuesday: Lats/Triceps
A1. Wide Grip pulldowns
A2. Close Grip BP
B1. Seated cable row
B2. EZ bar lying tricep extension

Wednesday: Lower Body unilateral/core
A1. One leg Squats
A2. Leg Curl
B1. One leg SLDL
B2. Leg Extension

Thursday: Rotator Cuff
Cuban Press
External Rotation

Friday: Chest/Biceps
A1. DB incline press
A2. Alternating DB incline curls
B1. Hammer Strength Bench Press
B2. Preacher Curl

Saturday: Lower Body Bilateral/forearms
A1. Back Squat
A2. BB wrist curl
B1. RDLs
B2. BB reverse wrist curl

EDT is one powerful program - still as Phil said - be careful. It will kick your ass. I know believe that 2 fullbody hiit + 1/2 lighter workoouts per week are enough to gain mass or fat loss.

Not a huge fan of HIT. I’d rather use it for building athleticism than muscle. Gonna take every 4th week off, so hopefully I won’t burn out.

Is a Cuban press similar to a California press?

HIIT isn’t HIT two different things

why would I use HIIT to try and gain mass? Good job reading between the lines. He obviously meant HIT.
