Various resistance activities are used today to increase the force-generating capacity of specific skeletal muscles. Many interdependent factors influence the magnitude of improvement, but great muscular tension during training appears necessary to elicit the desired changes in muscle function. If adequate tension is to be manifested in specific muscles, they must not be excessively fatigued. Consequently, sufficient rest should be provided during and between strength-training sessions in order…

TLDR
The length of the rest interval between sets is only 1 component of a resistance exercise program directed toward different training goals, and does not ensure a desired outcome if other components such as intensity and volume are not prescribed appropriately.
STRENGTH/POWER AUGMENTATION SUBSEQUENT TO SHORT‐TERM TRAINING ABSTINENCE
Strength augmentation has been demonstrated in resistance-trained men subsequent to 4 days of training abstinence. However, this phenomenon was exhibited in an unusual circumstance in which the
Effects of rest interval on isokinetic strength and functional performance after short-term high intensity training.
TLDR
The findings indicate that a relatively longer intrasession rest period resulted in a greater improvement in hamstring muscle strength during short term high intensity training.
Respiratory muscle training improves swimming endurance in divers
TLDR
Results from this study indicate that respiratory muscle fatigue is a limiting factor for underwater swimming performance, and that targeted respiratory muscle training (RRMT > ERMT) improves respiratory muscle and underwater swim performance.
LOWER LIMBS POWER TRAINING: IDEAL NUMBER OF REPETITIONS IN RELATION TO LOAD INTENSITY AND DENSITY
The main goal of the present study was to identify the ideal number of repetitions for two different intensities for lower limbs power training. Moreover, it was investigated if the rest interval
A Brief Review: How Much Rest between Sets?
TLDR
A REST INTERVAL is essential to re-ESTABLISH INTRA MUSCULAR BLOOD FLOW and OXYGEN DELIVERY that allows for the REPLENISHment of PHOSPHOCREATINE STORES, RESTORATION of InTRAMUSCULAR PH, REMOVAL of METABOLIC END PRODUCTS, and RETURN of MUSCLE MEMBRANE POTENTIAL to RESTing LEVELS.
Effects of Power Training with Optimal Load and Repetitions
The proposes of this dissertation were to examine the effects of used optimal load and repetitions when performing power training in mechanical, physiological and psychological variables, and compare
Resistance training frequency: strength and myosin heavy chain responses to two and three bouts per week
TLDR
Isometric and isokinetic strength responses to variations in training frequency differed from 1RM strength responses, and changes in strength were not strongly related to alterations in relative MHC content.
An Adequate Interset Rest Period for Strength Recovery During a Common Isokinetic Test
TLDR
It is suggested that a 1:3 work:rest ratio is sufficient during a common isokinetic strength test, as an effective method of standardizing rest periods in isokinetics testing.
Effect of Rest Interval Duration on the Volume Completed During a High-Intensity Bench Press Exercise
TLDR
Resistance-trained men, with the goal of greater volume during strength training, would benefit from longer RIs, specifically using an 8-minute RI between 4 consecutive sets of a bench press exercise.
