I hate resting too long during workouts, I just get bored. Now when I follow a program from the site I follow whatever prescription is given. I figure I'm not smart enough to screw with a good thing. I even time them in the gym using my timex grom Grade 10.
I know that in EDT you can have shorter rest periods for your beginning sets and rest more as you need it and Westside has days where they use really short rests.
When I need a rest and feel I can't do it I don't mind the 2 - 3 min rests. If I go by feel nothin really matters as long as my weights are going up (well not completly).
Sure you can mess with that variable later on but I've started workinge out again, and I want to increase my weights and have fun.
So do I need to be a stickler, or can I take as much time as I need to keep moving the weights. Also, can I increase my strength while not giving my CNS alot of time to recover. (stay away from maxing out)
