Resting between sets to promote superior hypertrophic results ?⭕️

Overall the consensus agrees with keeping 2-5 minutes rests between heavy sets of multi-joint exercises, in order to accumulate more volume and promote greater hypertrophic results.

It’s important to note though, that shorter rests can still be used for single-joint/machine-based movements, and additionally, even shorter rests (down to 15-20 sec between sets) can be useful for cluster-based types of training, such as Myo Reps in order to keep motor unit recruitment high across the exercise, despite using lighter sets to failure.

As always, context matters.

Training style, exercises performed, as well as your time availability, will dictate the structure of your workout to best stimulate hypertrophy!
