Resting for Waterbury Method

Dear all,

I was wondering for the Waterbury Method, when CW says to to “rest between exercise pairings” that means do a superset then rest 60 seconds correct?

Thanks

Yes.

After doing exercise 1 immediately do exercise 2 and then rest 60 seconds before starting again with exercise 1.

Sorry, but this isn’t correct. From page 4 of the article discussion (which is full of useful information):

The rest periods are prescribed at the beginning of each workout. Your confusion probably arises from the term “superset.” Usually, trainees equate supersets with no rest between sets, but that’s not how I, or Tudor Bompa, define such a method. For instance, on Day 1 you’ll rest 70s between the 10 x 3 method with squats. Then, the supersets will utilize a 60s rest period between each exercise:

A1, rest 60s, A2, rest 60s, A1, etc[/quote]

Arioch is correct.

Sorry, i misread “between exercise pairings”.
