Why We Rest When Lifting …

We see on the board each week, some barbell movement and after the movement we take a 90 second to 2 minute rest ..

Do you ever wonder why?

As any of you who know me, know I am a why person.

As a broad rule, the amount of time you should rest between exercises or sets depends on the amount of weight you’re lifting and what your overall goal is.

We all have very different goals when it comes to working out, but for most people looking to improve their muscular fitness, it’s best to rest for 30 to 90 seconds between sets of an exercise.

You should feel energized to get after your next set, but not so relaxed that your heart rate drops and your body cools down.

If you’re lifting heavier weights , then you should wait 90 seconds to two minutes between sets. This is the general rule and proven to make sure you are getting the most out of your workouts.

The Outcome of the “rest” will improve your health—strength, muscle mass, endurance, and weight loss. So if you end up cutting your rest a little shorter or making it longer than planned, don’t fret: You’ll still get the benefits.

Now you see it’s more than just a 90 second chat break.
