Stop making reps and rest so damn complicated! Here's how to program them properly into your training:


Power: 1-3 Reps/2-3 Min Rest

Strength: 4-8 Reps/1.5-2 Min Rest

Muscle: 8-15 Reps/1-1.5 Min Rest

Pump: 15-25 Reps/.5-1 Min Rest

Endurance: 25+ Reps/Try Not To Cry


*NOTE: Sets must be taken to technical failure
