🚨 VOLUME & REST BASED ON TRAINING GOALS
📍This is a basic breakdown of how to get started training toward your goal.⠀⠀
📍It is important to note that warm up sets are not included. These are mainly meant for core exercises like bench, deadlift, squat, etc. Assistance exercises may require a different number of reps, generally higher (never 1 rep max). Of course these rep ranges, sets, and rest intervals don’t apply to all exercises.
You need to carefully assess how much load is being used which could help in better identification of how much rest you should take. For example, using heavier weights close to your 1 rep max will typically require longer rest period versus weights that allow you to lift for a lot of reps may only need a short rest period.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📍There is one obvious element missing. Its the assignment of weight. Typically you want to calculate how much weight you should lift for a certain number of reps based off your 1 repetition max lift.
