Hi, I find myself unable to get out of the gym in a reaonable amount of time. I think for starters I need to start timing my rest periods so that I can see what it is I’m actually doing that’s taking so long.
I definitely use a long warmup period as well as a lot of pre-workout stretching. I’ve recently started combining the two (so instead of stretch stretch stretch, wu lift, rest, wu lift, rest, etc. I stretch inbetween warmup lifts).
However, a typical workout day might have ~20 sets (3 squat, 5 leg press, 3 leg ext., 3 leg curl, 3 seated calf, 3 straight leg calf, for example). At 3 min per set/rest, that’s an hour after warmup.
So question #1 is how long should I be taking in between sets? Question #2 is what can I do to get in and out in less time?
