Hi Steve i'm back again to pick your brains once more!

Do rest periods matter in the gym? A friend of mine told me that i wait too long inbetween sets (about 2 minutes) and he said that i have to shorten the rest periods to build muscle optimally, to which i counter-argued that my goal was to get as many reps out in a set with a heavy weight as possible (8-12) and this rest time range allows me to do that because everytime i shorten it i end up losing reps and all i gained was more sweat on my shirt!

I've always believed that more reps>higher intensity but who is right in this argument?

Cheers
