    ..... Pyramid/drop sets and super sets..... I think this is dumb advice. Everyone who made a transformation NATURAL...went balls to the wall for 6-8 months. When I do 10 sets of 10 on pullups each set is 45-65 seconds per set. I start off 1 minute rest and each set I have to force the last 1-2 reps I add 30 seconds of rest time. Building muscle is easy, burnout the muscle 25-45 enough food and sleep. The stronger you get the better your work capacity will be. For example: a few weeks ago I was doing 5 sets of 20 pullups(5 minutes rest in-between) and before curl I would do atleast 20 pullups. I did 10x10 today and before my curls I could only get 11..... This is a mental crutch and not optimal way of training for a regular person. Do your strength sets first and than body build sets after to get the best of both worlds.

    one question though, I always do a combo: 1 set squat, 1 set BP, 1 set pull ups, squat again. As I use different muscle groups, the rest can be shorter right? I just rest long enough to get my breath back.

    Holy shit I think a guy... Um his name is, oh you know him, Dorian Yates, would 100% disagree with you. I CAN DO THE SAME WEIGHT SET AFTER SET AT 30 SECONDS REST. Come to my gym and Ill show you, 1rm set after set 30 seconds rest. its called training my body to do what I want it to do. for pussies. by the way ATP takes up to 10 minutes to replenish, in 10 minutes Ive done more than you do in 30, and at max weight. Anything is possible if you train your body. You, can rest all you want, on all that gear you use. Shit, pick your nose, 5lbs of muscle.

    Coach Greg, I've been watching your videos for so long and learning so much that I had come up with this workout schedule trying to figure out a way to target each muscle effectively and efficiently that I do things that I then hear later from you that just confirms my theory. Like the alternate workouts to get rest for each muscle. I love working out and learning about it, you a G

    I have put this to the test over the last 29 years and he is exactly right! I did not get the muscular gains I was looking for until I started resting three to four minutes between sets. I leave my cardio for the cardio machines when I'm doing it separately weight training is about maximum weight I'm able to move at every set. That made the difference between 207 lb lean and 242 lb lean in a year. Yes that's with enhancements

    Adjusting your rest periods to reflect a 1:3 - 1:6 ratio is/was (in my experience) one of the hardest/most awkward things to get used to, but one of the most beneficial once I had my first workout utilising it under my belt. It'll probably feel weird at the start bro's, but trust in the Doctor, it is the way.

  44. SAV3 ICE

    In my opinion, it depends on the exercise and the reps. If you’re doing sets of 12 straight bar curls, you won’t need to rest as long as doing sets of 4 deadlifts.

  45. Drewg351

    Drewg351Prije 6 dana

    OMG !!!!! I'm SOOOOOOO Glad to hear this !!!! I totally agree with this video. I do 1 hour of fasted cardio in the morning to burn fat, keep my overall body healthy, and to gain stamina. I do weight training later in the day to build muscle. I cannot do set after set with the same weight, go up, or do more reps IF I'm not resting long enough to recover in between sets. It's great to finally hear someone state the obvious: do cardio to burn fat. Lift heavy weights or do more sets to build muscle. Don't try and "blur" the two.

    Answer: rest until you think your body is comfortable to do another full set, I've had it with the idea of time limit in resting per set/routine

  55. Sharibaby67 2020

    Sharibaby67 2020Prije 7 dana

    I like to keep my heart rate up-so try to not to spend too much time resting-but I need to burn more fat-I usually do my reps until failure-I don’t count them. When my form starts to waiver (and I mean-wiggling-barely able to finish) I stop. BUT if I’m doing arms-Like triceps-I do one side at a time-then I’m ready for the other side-for biceps-I do them one at a time-not both at the same time-so I do one lift with my right arm and one lift with my left arm. I’m able to keep up my heart rate and double the amount of time I’m working my arms. I can do this forever so once I’m nice and warmed up-I up the weights for my second set-work it until failure.-then I bust it out again with a lower weight. My heart rate is still up-I do 30 minutes of cardio as soon as I hit the gym-then immediately get into the weights. Is this the best way to gain muscle-not sure-but I am always looking to burn fat.

    No rest because you can pin your toosh with creatine, BCAAs and glutamine in between sets to finally smash that 8 hour arm workout so Rich Piana can get his hard on watching from bodybuilder heaven.

    I usually aim for 3-4 sets, 8-12 reps, with a space for 2 extra reps in each set for most of my workouts. I've watched Jeff Nippard's video and he said that this is the way to do it. But I only need 30s to a min rest after each set. Am I doing something wrong?🤔

    I don't agree with Coach Greg with this one, mostly i do but in this one i don't. On heavy weights 1 - 1.5 minutes rests are more than enough. I go to gym some ppl chatting in phone and resting like 5 minutes or more thats really a pussy training man. if you not getting tired, wet and looking like a big belly hippopotamus thats awful.
