  • Rest-Pause sets

    With respect to hypertrophy or strength, are rest-pause sets a valuable tool?

    If hypertrophy is driven by volume (sets x reps), then it would seem that resting longer to get more reps and sets would be more beneficial; and thus, rest-pause seem to be sub-optimal. Perhaps they are useful for strength? Is there any evidence regarding their effectiveness?

    Are they a tool that in some cases can be useful? Sure.

    Strength is specific, so without further context I'm not sure if I can answer your question.

    There is data suggesting rest-pause type work can improve hypertrophy, yes.
