I experimented with short rest almost all of last year. Most of my sets were under 4 reps, excluding the first set of the series. I generally performed 7 sets total for 25 to 30 reps.

Limiting rest worked well for me, and definitely throws off the set/rep/volume discussion by adding a fourth variable. Then we get into density divided by time - or simply, doing as much volume as you can in a given period of time.

Any way you slice it, more is more

Yeah, I rest for a minute max. When I'm doing my Bear & Farmer's walk cardio, supersets, or abs it's 30 seconds. With the superstes, it ends up being about a minute between finishing the 1st exercise and returning to it.
