    I change programs regularly but will always end up doing low rep compound exercices, after 2 or 3 sets of heavy squats, close to max effort, I sure feel 8mns rest are necessary. Even sub Max squats get me quite tired btw. After hearing the Lilliebridge and Licis boasting of 15mns rests and moving to a powerlifting gym where other lifters also take long rests, I m more inclined to take 8mns even from the first working set and don t get embarrassed id I rest 10mns
    Total work out duration is a problem though

  2. So how many total sets do you average per workout, and how long does your typical workout take?

    Baron, do you think I am getting an exemplary benefit by swinging dumbbells while riding a stationary bike or would I be better off doing something separately for arms?

    You'll be burning more calories that way for sure, and there's nothing wrong with that. It seems like the dumbbell weights would have to be pretty light for you to be curling them while on the bike for more than a few minutes. So I would still do some curls with heavier weights to get the muscle building benefits on whatever day you typically work arms.

    Ok thanks----I am swinging 10 lb bells for a 40 minute ride and it does get a bit tiresome especially when I hold arms straight out. I believe your advice is to keep doing it but grab some other lifting of a heavier nature to develop real strength?

    I'm saying that you can stick with the 10lb dumbbells while on the bike, but then do some heavier curls on a day you're not on the bike, as part of a strength building routine.
