Rest as needed between sets. If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted. When scheme is listed as “5 x 3″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and range of motion always govern weight, and “locked out” always includes a rigid stop of motion.

Reminder! (Almost) all movements referenced above are linked to high-quality video demonstrations/ explanations!
