    resting 45 secs vs 2-3 mins.

    what are the pros and cons?

    does it really matter?

    thanks

    rest periods of 10 - 15 minutes are generally accepted in all out lifting. It allows complete recovery.

    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
