On Rest Intervals None???

What does this mean? I go 5x5 with no rest at all in between sets???

Where did you find that exercise suggestion? I’m presuming it was in a program somewhere here. The “A1.” means that it was most likely in a mini-circuit or superset. So, you do 1 set of A1 and then 1 set of A2 immediately after, with no rest between the two movements.

I’d take another look at the program.

Your example refers to bench as “A1”. That implies that there’s probably an A2. Perhaps you should be supersetting A1 and A2 with no rest between the two exercises.
