That's the gist of EDT(Escalating Density Training). Basically you pick two opposite exercises(ie one push, one pull), so for instance barbell row and barbell press, set a time, like 10 mins and then do 5 reps of each switching back and forth for as many times as you can in 10 minutes. At the end you compute reps x weight as the total volume for that group.Or increase the reps with same weight, and reduce rest time. As long as you are progressively overloading each time you will get results. Took me 3 months of hard dieting, lifting and walking to see results. Weigh yourself and take pictures weekly if not daily. Take your measurements monthly with a tape measure, biceps, chest, waist, hips, thighs, calfs. In a recomp your weight won't be the best measurement when you get to a certain point. I'm 6-7 months into religious training/diet and look like a new man. More weights/reps each workout and sticking to it.
Combine 3-4 pairings in a workout and that's the workout.
The next week when you do that workout again your goal is to increase the volume from the previous week by either doing more reps with the same weight or lifting more weight for similar reps.
Pretty great after 8 weeks when you compare the volume from the first week with the 8th week.
