I dig it.
I see it as a very valuable tool for “normalizing” a trainee. What I mean by that is this: if you have been lifting 10x3 or 5x2 or 3x10 or ??? for a while - you know, focusing on primarily one of the strength qualities - EDT will rapidly balance you out.
EDT provides a shockingly new stimulus and is a great new weapon to keep in the arsenal.
For me, the conditioning aspect is unbelievable. I now feel like a lucky dog when I get to do programs that allow 60 or even 90 seconds of rest. What to do with all of that time? I have totally dropped cardio from my regime, yet I look and feel better and am in far superior shape. For slow twitch fat guys, EDT is paradise.
Another great advantage is flexibility. You can train just one movement for 15 minutes … or maybe 10 or even 20 minutes. Or you can do antagonistic pairings … or three exercises. You can train in the 60% 1RM range … or in the 90% 1RM range. Really, need I go on?
The metric is awesome. It is a total binary indicator of progress. You either improved … or you didn’t.
The simplicity of EDT is overwhelming.
I could go on for hours, but I actually think I will work today.
