Confused with Rest Times

Quick question.

A1 - rest 15
A2 - rest 60

Does that mean rest 15sec between A1 and A2? And 60sec between sets?

How about>
A1 - 30
A2 - 30
A3 - 30
A4 - 30

Still the same? Isn’t that too much rest between?

What confuses me is the fact that to me is seems the rest is too long before A & A. Is that the intention? Why if you dont mind me asking?

Thanks buddy

Yes, it means just that.

But TO ME rest intervals are NEVER set in stone. It is only a general recommendation to give you an idea about the tempo of the workout.

YOU REST AS LITTLE AS YOU CAN WHILE STILL BEING ABLE TO PERFORM OPTIMALLY.
