Rest Intervals w/Heavy Lifting
What kind of rest intervals do you guys use when lifting heavy (85%+ 1RM)? 3-5 minutes? More, less?

Usually w/deads and squats I'll rest about 3 mins. to get some air!

What about bench and power cleans? Same idea?

from what I nkow hypertrophy would be 1min 2 min tops, power lifting would be 3-5 for bench squat dead lift (basically same for power cleans) SwoleCat knows better though, I could be wrong.

3-5 min for strength.

I would say whenever you get your wind back and the lactic acid burn goes then start the next set everyone will be somewhat different.

waiting until they get their wind back could be way too long lol
