      Because the science CONLUSIVELY says longer rests between sets up to even 4 minutes is superior for muscle growth.

    Rest less between sets. Just long enough for your breath, heart rate, and strength to come back. If it takes longer than 2 minutes on any lift but squat and Deadlift, work on your conditioning.

      you only rest two minutes (or even less lmao) when doing weighted pullups, weighted dips, bench, rows, or OHP? For isolation shit like curls, pushdowns, mid/rear delt flies it makes sense, for for heavy compounds it's just unimaginable.
      Post your stats and routine immediately, gay (I'd ask you to post body too, but no one ever does it)

        60-120 seconds yes. They don't fatigue me much. Deadlift gasses me out for 3-4 minutes and squats for 2-3.

        Isolation work like curls, Lateral raises, pushdowns, crunches, etc I do 30-60 seconds rest.

        6'2 205lbs probably 16-17ish% bodyfat as I'm ending a bulk soon.

        Routine

        Push:
        Incline bench
        Cable fly
        Pushdown
        Lateral raise
        Seated ohp
        Shrugs

        Pull:
        Chinups
        1-arm cable row
        Preacher curl
        Rope Hammer curl
        Facepull
        Wrist curls

        Leg 1
        Leg press
        Single leg extension
        Deadlift
        Single leg curl
        Standing calf raises
        Seated calf raises
        Hanging leg raises

        Upper:
        Wide grip bench
        Chest supported row
        Dips
        Cable curl
        Cable Lateral raise
        Wrist curl
        Shrug

        Leg 2
        Sldl
        Single leg curl
        High bar squat
        Single leg extension
        Standing calves
        Seated calves
        Crunches

        Sets are 2-3 the first week and deloads. I then increase 1 set per exercise weekly and increase reps weekly, weight increases every other week until I go for a new 10rm on the 5th week. Then I deload and repeat with different exercises based on what's working for me and what isn't. It's the 5 day custom template from RP

        2 warmup sets on all isolation lifts. 3-5 on my compounds. About 5 for legs and 3 for upper body because the weights much lighter.

          Too many useless leg exercises, what's the fucking point? I'm laughing at you making big gains with hindu squats and I pity you. I would agree on having few reps of deadlifts twice per week, hindu squats high rep for cardio and strength conditioning, back, front and calf squats wouldn't be needed if you did a lot of hindu squats as you do them on your toes and over your knees, I feel them hit my abs too, maybe some single leg squat or a lunge squat would be good as a third exercise. Too much crap in this program leg wise.

          That pull day though, why don't you add in some finger curls as wrist curls are sort of meh when it comes to forearm strengthening if done alone, you need to be able to close the fist with force for the wrist curls to be any good. The upper one looks pretty good too.

            Wrist curls are started with the dumbbells all the way down in my fingers. So squeezing them up into my hand is part of the movement. Each rep ends with them back deep in my fingers to where my thumbs can't even wrap around as well. It gives a damn good pump that leaves my forearms fried for a few hours. Between them Deadlifts, and chins I don't need much more for forearms or grip. Grips not really a limiting factor on any movements for me. The wrist curls are just icing. Leg extensions are in because they work the quads differently than squats and give me a really good pump when I follow squats with them. Leg press and hack squat get rotated. High bar squat gets rotated for front, belt, and split squats based on what's currently working best. Calf Raises are added because they work well and I'm focusing on calves, biceps, and shoulders currently. Also why I have less hamstring than quad work. My hamstrings are about twice as strong currently from years of Deadlift specialization.

            The point of the routine isn't so much in gaining strength as it is for putting on mass. It works well for that. I'd do an upper lower split with heavier weight and more sets if I was worried about strength gains currently. Everything's in here currently because it's what currently works for my goals.

            Gonna avoid hindu squats too because going on my toes causes tendon issues in my knees. I push through my heels because it causes me less joint issues. The goal is to make my muscles ache as much as I can with as little joint pain as possible otherwise I'd consider them.

      Resting shorter means you'll be able to lift less weight or less reps, meaning less total volume, meaning less gains. The only benefit of short rest times is making you spend less time in the gym. I have no other hobbies so that is not a problem for me. I work, gym, eat, sleep.

      I will rest more than you, and I will get more gains than you.

        You rest 5 minutes and do 5x5, assuming 1 minute per set thats 25 minutes for 25 reps

        I rest 2 minutes and do 2x5, 2x4, 2x3, 2x2
        I do 28 reps in 25 minutes

        I do more volume than you in the time

          more volume but less weights. resting more maximizes tonnage.

          • 2 months ago
            Anonymous

            If dudes dropping reps as he pyramids, the weight is likely increasing between sets meaning Tonnage would likely be higher on top of doing more total reps. Let's be real though, usually Tonnage is higher from lower weight higher rep sets if they're taken close to failure due to total volume being higher.

            Ex: Deadlifting 425x5 VS 385 4x8
            425 5x5 gives you 10625 total Tonnage and a volume of 25 reps.

            385 4x8 gives you a total Tonnage of 12320 and 32 total reps. Despite less sets and weight.
