Rest Periods Between Sets: Hypertrophy, Strength or PRs

The three types of rest intervals are ordinary, stress, and stimulating.

1.   Ordinary  – 3 to 5 minutes - allows for recover of your performance level prior to the next set
2.   Stress – less than 3 minutes – accumulates fatigue, the more sets you do the more tired the muscle will be

3.   Stimulating – 12 minutes or more – allows you to perform better on the next lift. Good for working towards new PRs.
