    These seem like pretty hard core workouts, i think I am going to give them a try.

    I feel like I’ve been trying to get superfit for a long time, but nothing really works for me. I would love to keep up with a hardcore workout like this, but I’m not sure I can. I’ve been looking around for another solution, and I’ve been hearing a lot about a new book called “Looking Good Naked: Natural Weight Loss in 6 Easy Steps”. I think I might be able to handle that.

    @Marie, I think you’ve made it through this entire article without actually seeing the simplicity of it. You train with 1/2 (50%) of your maximum weight and use it through the entire time.

    for example… if you do bench presses with 100 pounds, you’d choose 50 pounds.

    at the end of the PR zone, you should be fatigued and thoroughly trashed, but certainly not in any way that’s not manageable to complete.

    you may want to rethink your comment above after giving this workout protocol another read over.

    EDT is brilliant in it’s simplicity

    Hey Rob, you say to avoid most breakfast cereals, but I can recommend one that is excellent. I eat the kashi go lean. The breakdown in 1 cup is 140 cals 1 gram fat 30 grams of carbs with 10 grams of fiber and 6 grams sugar with 13 grams of protein. This is an excellent cereal fo staying full and not bad tasting. I think it’s oatmeals equal

    @Rob, I didn’t see anything about training at 50% of maximum either, but knowing that does make the program suddenly seem a lot less torturous and more like a challenging yet humane option. So, thanks for pointing that out!

    Very interesting, I must give this a go

    Rob – I like this program, and I’ve been using it to great success with the clients I train. I do find that, like you mentioned, it isn’t for everyone! Even when the ones who are capable of doing it give it a try, it takes a while for them to get the concept of working themselves at such a high intensity. I’ve been training myself like this for years, and love the different ways to incorporate high intensity workouts in body composition training. I like the blog, by the way. Lots of great content! I’ll definitely be back to read some more of what you have to write about.

    At the end of the day it all comes down to calories in vs calories out and it will be that way until the end of time. :>)

  10. Rob says:

    Yes Name and Link Removed, however, EDT is a way to rapidly increase the rate at which we burn those calories. It’s a quick and efficient way to lean up while building tremendous strength at the same time.

    It sounds tough, but then that’s why it works. I’ll keep this in mind for my maintenance blog when I need to shift those last few stubborn pounds. The only other hard exercise I had was circuit training and HIIT.

  12. Cory says:

    Seems pretty simple; how many sets should be done for each exercise? It appears that this is also HIIT?

  13. Hi there Rob!

    Love the post! The workout sounds brutal but as you said, everything comes with a price! I like the fact that you called it a “rambo” style workout.

    I use to mix up my resistance training followed by interval training 3 times a week. It worked like a charm and I can just imagine that the training you are mentioning here will bring results!

    Thanks for the insight and I will definitely come back for more!

    Michael

    @Cory, you didn’t read the article did you?

    “You’ll perform (3) 15-Minute “PR Zones” where you’ll attempt to accumulate as many total reps as possible and then improve upon that number every workout”

    Sets of 5, back and forth between exercises, without rest for 15 minutes to accumulate AS MANY reps as possible.

    Then on your next training session, beat it by at least 1 rep

  15. Crys says:

    Is there a particular article that explains how to properly do the moves listed in the PR zone or should I just try to look that up elsewhere?
