    Default Study on Rest Pause Sets

    themusclephd

    💥This study found that using rest-pause sets increased muscle activation more so than traditional sets. Greater muscle activation is correlated with increases in muscle size (Wakahara, et. al. 2012) so rest-pause sets might help increase gains. Try rest-pause sets by performing a typical set of 6-10 reps, rest for about 15-20 seconds, then perform more reps to failure. You can even do multiple pauses in a set for maximum fatigue!

    I do similar but supersets and load switched then back after pause.
    Keeps body fat lower and kills muscle faster without as heavy weight!!

    Our muscle has no clue how much weight we using but it knows when it's in a bind!
