We investigated the variability of strength trained athletes' self-selected rest periods between sets of heavy squat training. Sixteen strength-trained male athletes (Mage = 23, SD = 3 years) completed two squat training sessions 48 hours apart. Each training session consisted of five sets of 5RM squats, interspersed with self-selected interset rest periods. A Gymaware linear optical encoder collected kinetic data for each squat and temporal data for each interset rest period. The participants…

The Effect of Different Rest Intervals Between Sets on Volume Components and Strength Gains
TLDR
The findings of the present study indicate that large squat strength gains can be achieved with a minimum of 2 minutes' rest between sets, and little additional gains are derived from resting 4 minutes between sets.
Effects of fixed vs. self-suggested rest between sets in upper and lower body exercises performance
TLDR
The results suggest that for individuals with previous experience, the self-suggested RI can be an effective option when using workloads commonly prescribed aiming hypertrophy and can reduce the total training session duration, which can be a more time-effective strategy.
MONITORING EXERCISE INTENSITY DURING RESISTANCE TRAINING USING THE SESSION RPE SCALE
TLDR
The session RPE is a reliable method to quantify various intensities of resistance training to quantify exercise intensity during high- intensity, moderate-intensity, and low-intensity resistance training.

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.
ACOMPARISON OF 3DIFFERENT REST INTERVALS ON THE EXERCISE VOLUME COMPLETED DURING A WORKOUT
TLDR
The ability to perform a higher volume of training with a given load may stimulate greater strength adaptations, and one-way repeated analyses of variance with Bonferroni post hocs demonstrated significant differences between each rest condition for both exercises tested.
Influence of Previous Experience on Resistance Training on Reliability of One-Repetition Maximum Test
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the reliability of the 1RM test is influenced by the subject's previous experience in resistance training.
Effect of fixed and self-suggested rest intervals between sets of resistance exercise on post- exercise cardiovascular behavior Efeito do intervalo de recuperação fixo e autossugerido entre séries do exercício resistido sobre o comportamento cardiovascular pós-esforço
TLDR
It is suggested that intervals of at least 2 minutes between sets may be interesting to provide more repetitions and reduce the post-exercise sympathetic effect.
Sources of variability in iso-inertial jump assessments.
TLDR
Results suggest that power output and associated variables exhibit a diurnal rhythm, with improved performance in the afternoon, and morning testing may be preferable when practitioners are seeking to conduct regular monitoring of an athlete's performance due to smaller variability.
Rest Interval between Sets in Strength Training
TLDR
The rest interval between sets is an important variable that should receive more attention in resistance exercise prescription and when prescribed appropriately with other important prescriptive variables can influence the efficiency, safety and ultimate effectiveness of a strength training programme.
Familiarization, Reliability, and Evaluation of a Multiple Sprint Running Test Using Self-Selected Recovery Periods
TLDR
The results of the present study show that after the completion of 2 familiarization trials, the ability to maintain sprinting performance in a series of repeated sprints can be self-regulated by an athlete to a high degree of accuracy without the need for external timepieces.
