Re: Resting between reps - is it necessary?

luv2shop i take it your a female so you should take less rest between SETS than males. Generally females who train want a cardiovascular effect too, which helps loose weight, and to acheive this u should rest for about 3o seconds, where as males require more rest as they lift heavier weights and need the recovery time. Dont get confused between reps and sets, a repitition is pulling/pushing a weight once, a set is a number of repititions. After one whole set is where u have to rest.
