Default Training advice to gain weight

Hi Guys (and gals),
I need your advice on a training method. How to gain maximum weight in ten weeks, by Gary Matthews.
http://www.maxfitweightgain.com/
He advice that twice a week, 20-30 mins per session, you can gain weight, about 14pnds in 10 weeks. If you read what he puts in his web site, it makes some sense (Other then supercompensation occurs after 36 hrs and not 5 days), but it sounds too good to be true. I would use some of his principles and modify it to something like this:

-30 mins for a session of training(short, high intensity weight training sessions)
-3 times a week (full body, 3 times a week)
-4 sets (to failure) per body parts (2 different exercise) for major muscle groups(chest, legs, back)
-2 sets (to failure also) for smaller muscle groups (Biceps, Triceps, Shoulders)
-Only compound exercises.
-and a good diet to bulk!

Please give me your advice, point of view on this matter.

Thanks

If you want to gain weight you have to eat alot of food. Sure the program might work, but not without the proper amount of calories.

If you are doing 2 exercises with 4 sets each 3 times a week, thats 24 per body part. It could possibly be a bit much. I'm not saying it couldnt work, just something to think about. Eating and sleeping will be very key. Have you been lifting for awhile at least?

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

Thanks guys for your replies.
First.. let me explain a bit more the program

When I say 4 sets (2 different exercises) it means that its 4 sets total for that body part per training day (2 sets per exercise) so for a total of 12 sets per week for major body parts and 6 sets per week for smaller body parts.

As for lifting experience, for about 12 years, but the last 6 years I train smarter.

Present weight 173 pnds , +/- 12%fat, would like to get to 185, 8%fat

The program itself doesn't sound bad, but what does your diet look like. The best program in the world will not do a damn thing if you aren't eating right. Good luck on making your goal.

Cardio sucks
