Resting between sets is a crucial part of your workout, so it’s essential that you know what works for you.
Generally, 90 to 120 seconds is the ideal time, but there is a fair bit of flexibility depending on how you feel and how long you’ve been regularly working out.
Try to stick to a rest period of no less than 1 minute and no more than 2. Resting is important as a break for a little recuperation, but you shouldn’t prolong it to such an extend that your body starts to cool down.
But a little extra isn’t so much an issue as not enough.
Even if you feel like you can jump right into your next exercise, you need to give your body a few moments to reset. If you push too quickly, you increase your risk of injury and can actually hinder your overall fitness progress.
