How do you time your rest periods?
Whenever I manage to time my rest periods and stick to a strict protocol, it really helps to kick things along, and give me a good training session. But I suck at managing to do it.
When I’ve just finished a set, resetting and starting the stop-watch is generally the last thing on my mind. When I’m “busy” recovering, I forget to watch the stop-watch…
If I’m in a busy gym, subconsciously I think I must watch other people’s rest periods - if theirs begin after mine, and end before mine, then it might be time to do another set… But now I’m training at home, so I have no one else to watch, subconsciously or otherwise.
Does anyone have a good strategy for this?
