    Rest Between Sets

    How long should you rest between sets?

    I've seen guys rest for a few minutes, and I've seen people only rest for 30 seconds.

    For bodybuilding 60-120 seconds, for heavier weights more rest - like powerlifting, can go 3-5 minutes.

    I'm currently at 2 minutes, so I set my stopwatch for 1:50 countdown.

    for me it also depends on the work-out I am on, e.g. legs, in which I rest longer especially if I am doing heavy squats.
