I hear tell that you need 2-3 minutes for mass/strength. I've heard this often from strength coaches and doctors.

Going heavy I'll rest 2-3 minutes.....moderate weight then 30 seconds or even less.

It depends on the workout goal. For example supersets,trisets I use little or no rest. When going heavy more than 2 minutes to recoup.

if you go heavy i dont see how youd be able to jump right into the next set. you need time to recooperate

Goal = mass = lift heavy = at least two minutes.
I work out with a partner and do the exercise almost just as soon as he is done, unless I am not ready then I take a minute or two more.
I lift when I am ready. Which in turn depends on the set, the exercise and the previous weight as a percentage of 1RM.
It is pointless to rabbit out a bunch of light sets and equally pointless to take so long between sets that the sweat dries.
