I was compound super setting almost everything with an opposing movement (push then pull, etc) with very little break between and keeping my heart going. Sweat would be pouring off me and holy shit they were good workouts

Ive been having trouble getting back to that intensity again since the summer but Im almost there again.
This.

Any tips on how to keep up the intensity? I started working out again after 3 weeks and feels really good but i feel I could push myself much harder. I just wanna keep the motivation up to keep going for a whole hour and half with minimal braeks.

Just got back from the gym from doing chest and biceps today. i think its time to find a training partner lol...its so hard to grind out that last rep know that if you don't, your fucked. i also cut down my rest times to ~45secs. and seems like i got a better workout. i managed to throw in 7 exercises within an hour.

who here goes to rev's to workout?

there is no way on compound exercises you can do them with 45 seconds rest.. when im doing DB bench press i need at least 2-3 mins rest in between or I wont be able to even push up the weight on the first rep... and to even think u could do less then a minute rest on deadlifts is a joke.. but for biceps, triceps etc smaller bodyparts I can see it working well

I was only using a weight that i was comfortable with hence the 1min rest times. but for deads, i haven't tried with a minute rest. i just started the 5/3/1 template again to see how much stronger i can get.

If you do sets like I do - based on how much you can lift explosively with perfect form, rather than trying to hit an arbitrary target each time - then 45 seconds rest is plenty. In fact that was my rest period yesterday, for dips, pullups, and hack squats at 3RM. So instead of doing 3 reps, resting 3 minutes, and doing another 3 reps, I would do 3 reps, rest 45 seconds, and do maybe 2 reps. Sometimes I had enough to do 3.

It is really interesting how differently you look at things when your target is an overall number of reps, rather than a set target of reps per set. Most plans aim for 24-25 reps, whether it's an 8x3 program or a 5x5. But this way, you are aiming for the same 25, but with more force done (because rep speed is higher) and more intensity (since rest times are lower) which is what was being discussed here in the last page or so of this thread.

Here's an article that talks a bit about this.

Here's one on lifting explosively

at first it may be tough, but your body will adapt and will be able to recover faster.. with that said.. with the 30-45 second rest period you are training for hypertrophy so it isnt so much a workout to work on your strength.. it has more to do with activating and fatiguing as many muscle fibers as you can.. that is how hypertrophy training works.

and here we have a candidate for needing more cardio. i hear alot of people say "i dont do cardio because i will shrink" good cardio allows your muscles to feed and breath more efficiently meaning you dont need to sit for 15 minutes between sets.


also, if you're doing compound super sets, if you take 45 seconds between sets, your muscle group gets like 2-2.5 full minutes of rest between sets.



obviously DLs require more rest than shoulder press. but use your judgement.


DONT WATCH THE CLOCK for your rest, KNOW YOUR BODY.

I think resting a minute is long enough :S

had a good chest/bicep workout today, tried the high intensity route with less than a minute in between reps and if i couldnt jump back on chest after the rest i'd hit up my leg press for a quick set in between, pretty good workout today

Just keep in mind that your sets will be shorter.
