    Rest Intervals w/Heavy Lifting

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

    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.

    Are you really asking what each of those mean, or are you subtly trying to say that they go hand in hand? I can't really tell, and don't want to make a total ass of myself, lol.

    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.

    I disagree with this. Some kids haven't done cardio since the turn of the century.

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