EDT weight training and Multisport training

Ive been reading a lot about "escalating density training (EDT)" and it seems
like an interesting concept to merge with my multisport training.

Are any of the tri veterans familiar the EDT system?

Basically, its weight training measured by the total number of reps in a 15
minute time period with the goal of increasing the total number of reps by 20%
you increase the weights by 10%.  

THe time component seems to be a good way to add cardio to weight training and
work on muscular endurance as well.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

It's all hocus pocus.  Swim, bike, run to get faster swimming, biking, and running.
