in relation to rest times between singles , i usually take 90seconds , the main driver behind this is that i am tight on time for my workouts , if i had more time i think i would indulge myself to 2.5 minutes!
Thank you, markievich. I'm a big fan of quick workouts too. I'll try to focus a bit more and cut out on the BS. Oddly, BS'ing at the gym is NOT a strong suit. It just happened to work out that way these last two sessions.

My thoughts exactly. No PR's yet, maybe in a couple of months if I go according to plan.

Thank you, EVERYBODY!!!
