What is everyone’s opinion on rest period length for hypertrophy, strength, or both?
I have been focusing a lot on weight moved and volume for the past couple months and have let my rest periods get longer and longer.
This past week I started focusing more on getting perfect form (feeling the muscle worked really well) and doing much shorter rest periods (around 30 - 60 seconds). My weights have dropped dramatically, but I feel the muscle a lot better and have been getting great pumps. Also, I sweat a lot more.
We’ll see how it works out though. I’m going after plain ol’ hypertrophy with this method.
What’s everyone’s opinion on rest periods. I’m not looking for a definitive answer, I would just like to know about others experiences.
