    K so now i've got a question. With the squat 3 times a week, i notice it is planned out to work out monday wednesday and friday. But i go to the gym on Tuesday, thursday, and friday. Is this going to be a problem?

    how long do you wait in between sets? i've read several articles that say too long of a break does more harm than good. it was talking about shorter rest intervals incorporating more muscle fibers than longer rest intervals :dunno:

    not that long if you don't take forever and an hour long breaks.

    Between the squats, deads and bench, its definitely the longest/funnest day, but I still get'er done in under an hour

    I assure you its quite possible.

    I just don't rest a whole lot. If you timed it out, it woudl be 3.5min/set (including rest)

    2 minute rest periods (sometimes racking + 2 minutes if a heavier set) gets me out in 1:05...

    the rest I get is somewhere around 2.5min, which is plenty for me. plus, you don't have to be at full strength all 5 sets. remember, you are only hitting your 5RM once per exercise

    Don't mind me, I apparently can't read today :wtc:

    I read that as 3.5 minutes total per exercise :uh:

    i do a light warmup, then about 70% for acclimation, then straight to my 5rm for the rest of the sets
