How long does it take you to do the workout + core + cardio?
- Javelin raises are one of my favorite exercises these days.
- FWIW, I only rest about 30-45 seconds between sets. I'm probably using close to the same weight for a lot of exercises I was using a year or two ago when I'd rest for 60-120 seconds. It's a bitch with stuff like lunges, but with most other lifts, I only find myself really struggling to finish sets near the end with the shortened rest periods.
I think a lot of people take way too long in between sets under the guise that they are lifting a lot, so they need to rest a lot. If it works for them, fine, but I think my lifts have gotten better by giving myself less time to rest in between instead of more.
- Unrelated, but there's this dude who's lifting every day I'm there. He does lots of compound movements, so props to him for that. But he wears the exact same thing every day and there's no way he ever washes those clothes, because he's one of the foulest smelling people I've ever been near. That includes the homeless, and I say that in all earnest. He looks like a pretty normal dude, so I'm not sure why he's alienating himself from everyone at the gym by literally leaving a stench behind anywhere he walks.
