Featured Article ~ Optimal Rest Time Between Workout Sets

There are two ways to look at the question of time between sets. From a psychological perspective, Iíd never advise a person to train in a way that he or she finds aversive. For example, I donít like doing supersets, so even if it were the most effective training strategy, wouldnít do them. No matter what the best training approach is, there simply maybe a pace thatís more acceptable and reasonable for some people.

The other perspective is physiological. If your goal is purely weightlifting, then it makes sense to take three minutes or more between sets. Even that much time may not be necessary, however. For example, three minutes is about the time I used to take between sets in order to lift maximum weights, but, when you consider the inordinate number of warmup sets I used to do, the time between real work sets was often much more than two or three minutes. For a variety of reasons Iíve reduced that time to about 70 to 90 seconds between sets for major movements such as squats and deadlifts or pullovers and pulldowns and about 60 seconds for movements such as curls and pushdowns. Iím just as strong as ever training at this pace, but I believe Iím now in better condition.

I also enjoy the quicker pace of the workouts. Iíd say you can move as quickly as you want to between sets as long as you donít compromise form or strength and donít find yourself attempting to turn your weight training into aerobic training.
