Been quite awhile since I posted on here but I recently read some articles discussing new studies that have been done on rest periods and greater rest periods 2-4 mins or so being better for strength and muscle gains. My understanding from what I’ve read is for bigger movements like squats presses deadlifts etc resting around 3 mins is optimal and for isolation exercises you can keep it a little shorter here 1 min or so. Feel free to add in anything I’ve missed or misunderstood but my biggest question is around how does this new information correlate to cutting?
Should you apply the same logic to lifting when cutting as it relates to rest periods or what are your thoughts here? I haven’t found any articles that really touch on this and in the past I could always count on the folks here for some of the best info out there.
