resting 45 secs vs 2-3 mins.
what are the pros and cons?
does it really matter?
I would not take 45 second rests.
Doesnt really matter.....well unless you are talking exaggerated rests to teh point of where you get cold and such.
rest periods of 10 - 15 minutes are generally accepted in all out lifting. It allows complete recovery.
it ake about 1 minute
go at an uptempo pace based off the intensity you are using to lift.
in the 55-70% range, I take ~45sec to a minute.
as I approach 90% I'm up to a couple minutes.
And right around 100% I take as much time as is necessary to lift hard.
Just do your next set when you feel ready. Who cares how long it's been. If you feel you're ready to complete another set, go for it. Some days it takes me 2 mins between sets, some days 30 seconds. Depends on how tired I am, if it's a light or heavy lifting day, etc.
resting period is dependent upon rep scheme. If you are going for hypertrophy waiting 60-90 seconds is preferred according to nasm
between sets i wait 60-75 seconds.. between exercises, 3-4 minutes
Thats your first problem. WHy the fuck are you waiting that long???
