the longer the rest the greater you can exert your muscular strength in a set. the shorter you rest, the harder you have to exert your cardiovascular system. whichever you value more you'll want to train harder.
there is no ideal rest time unless you are doing something very specific (like powerlifting requires several minutes rest, obviously). it may be beneficial to at least monitor your rest times, though, as as training progresses you can do other things besides manipulate reps/weight used, you can also shorten/lengthen rest intervals.
>>35656739 Thanks for the valuable input, here's a term for you, « Difficulty understanding their listener's perspective. For example, a person with autism may not understand that someone is using humor. They may interpret the communication word for word and fail to catch the implied meaning.».
Generally, when you only wait 1 minute you run a lot higher risk of having to drop either a rep or weight for your next set. In return, 1 minute rests usually yield more "explosive" muscles, i.e. "bigger". Not more in actual strength gains, tho, that remains the same throughout. As I understand it, this is why bodybuilders usually wait for 1 minute only as in the end, their muscles will become more defined by this approach.
5 minutes seems excessive for me. I wait 2-3 minutes. 3 (or more) when deadlifting.
