I’ve enjoyed your interviews and articles for a couple of years now. Thanks for sharing the hard-won knowledge.
I have a question based on your recent articles on recommended rest periods. Being time-poor but recognising that hypertrophy demands larger rests, can you give me a critique of a training circuit that would use an EMOM (or every 75 seconds) for 3 or 4 circuits of 6 or seven compound movements i.e. what would be the pros and cons.
For example if someone did the following circuit 3 times, starting each exercise on the 75 seconds mark, could they gain size (I realise it may not be optimal):
A Hinge movement
A Squat movement
A horizontal pull
A horizontal push
A vertical pull
A vertical push
Assume, a warm up and cool down and this is still around 45 minutes I estimate. Could this be a good compromise for someone who is time poor and wants to get some hypertrophy as well as some secondary benefits.
thanks for your time.
