Just wanted to know how long I should be resting between sets? I’m currently on an 8(sets)X4(reps) for large muscle groups (i.e. chest, legs, back) and
5-6(sets)X4(reps) for smaller muscle groups (i.e. shoulders, bi, tri). I complete 4 reps per set with a weight equal to my 6 rep max. Also, for the most/quickest mass gain do you think this scheme sounds about right or would something like 6X6 be better, performing 6 reps per set with a weight equal to my 8 rep max, and in that case what would my rest between sets be?
-Flat bench 8X4
-Cable row with V-attachment 8X4
-Standing Barbell Shoulder Press 6X4
-Close Grip Bench Press 6X4
-EZ Curls 5X4
-Stiff Deadlift 4X4
Finally, now that I’ve recently switched back to training heavy (6 rep max) I’ve noticed that the outer edge of my forearms hurt like hell when performing curls. I’m using the EZ bar for now. I was using the straight bar (olympic, actually the bench bar) before, but it seemed to be even worse with the straight bar. It’s just the outer edge of each forearm (pinky side). Any ideas here? Should I be concerned? Pain seems to peak right before/as I release my grip after performing a set.
