Hi there, another question!

Couldn´t find the info in the FAQ so: how long rest between sets do you recommend?

So far I have rested ca 1 min in light sets (50% or less) and ca 2 min in a bit heavier sets (60%). Even heavier, 80% ca 3 min rest and 95-100% ca 4 min.

2-3 minutes is a good guideline for all sets. Some people like to rest about 4 minutes between max attempts or during heavier squats. I would only rest a minute if Greg tells you to do something on the minute.

Hey! I just want to thank you for putting these workouts on the website. I started olympic weighlfting 2 years ago and i love it more than anything. Its by far the most challanging thing i have ever done! My current maxes are 150kg C&J - 120kg snatch @ 88kg bw. I just started your program monday 5-24-10. I want to make it as far as i can in this sport no matter what it takes and i think with guidance from Mr. Everett's workouts it will help alot!! Wish you guys the best and thanks so much!!
