resting between sets


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about resting between sets within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I am a newbie to weight training but used to lift a lot when i was younger. I've never really gave it much thought but lifting on my own and not flowing with other people around me i'm curious how long you should be taking between sets? do you like time it ? or do you just judge by how your muscles feel?

    it really depends man, i always mix it up.. back when i lifted heavy like 2-3 rep sets i would take time between sets. i would look up at the clock and wait like 4 minutes but then speed up my workouts with higher reps

    now i do it much faster. going for the healthy thing
    Now taking clients for 1 on 1 consults

    For me, typically around a minute. Sometimes slightly more and sometimes slightly less. I do not train for strength though. That would be longer rest time.
