    Rest between sets






    Is there good (recommended) rest time between sets? Does it depend on how much weight you're working out with? Thanks.

    There's no set time, I take about 30 seconds to a minut, just depends on what I'm doing. Legs take a longer break than say arms.
    Cool

    I'd say take between 30 seconds to a minute for hypertrophy, and 2 minutes to 5 minutes for power.

    It depends on my work-out that day, if it's a "heavy day" I rest longer between sets, probably close to 2-3 minutes.

    If you're looking for growth, 1-2 minutes on average. Anaerobic threshold/conditioning, 30-90 seconds. For strength/explosiveness, 2-5 minutes.

    On average, of course.

    I wondering about rest times myself... Do you guys glance at your watch to time the rest? I say this because I thought I was resting about 45-60 seconds, but when I actually started timing it it was more like 2 minutes.

    I've also been resting about 3 or 4 minutes between deadlift and squat sets.
    I knew The Poodle Man... and he fuckin' hated poodles.

    But I am also a believer to listen to your body when it comes to rest. Somedays your body needs a little longer to rest to ensure you complete the next set with good success. Course their are other days when you need less rest cause your body is recovering faster and you have more energy. Just depends on how the body feels when you walk through weight room doors.
