Those of you we coach will know we love a rest period, right?

Those who don’t probably think the words ‘rest’ and ‘training’ don’t exist?

 

Wrong rest periods = Limited results

So what are the right and wrong lengths?

Well that’s quite a general question, but let me shed some ‘lightuth’ upon this…

 

All forms of resistance training (excluding core) = Greater than 2 minutes

Anything less and intensity is compromised via energy pathways and training affect suffocated

(which means a poorer returns for your good self)

 

Conditioning/fitness?

Well it depends on your work period and specific goal, but in very general terms:

 

Fitness = 1:1 – 1:3 (work:rest)

Body fat = 1:2 upward (work:rest)

 

Surprise you? Sound easy?

 

These sessions are only easy if you don’t work at the required level which activates the physiology to cause the results you want

 

An example from my good self?

 

One of the most challenging fitness/conditioning sessions I did was on the ‘darling WattBike’…

 

I, along with 5 of my other pro rugby players I coached did…

 

20 seconds max peddling, and rested 2 minutes

I can’t begin to explain to you how we all looked and felt, ouuuch

This was because the levels of intensity and the effect we caused during those brief 20 sec hits

 

Resting is critical, it creates intensity, this sets of signals to create results

Its not all circuit training, stations and getting a burn on

 

 

Speak shortly
