PostSubject: rest in pyramid set exercises   Tue Apr 12, 2011 12:18 pm

Hey there!
So i have a question regarding the pyramid sets: Am i doing them right?
Pyramid DH pull-up's:
5 reps - 10 sec rest - 6 reps - 10 sec- 7 reps - 10 sec - 8 reps - 10 sec - .......-15 reps- 10 sec - 14 reps- 10 sec - ........-5 reps (so this is one set)
then 2 min rest and yet another set. so in the end there are 4 sets like that.
So am i doing them right or im supposed to do more resting like 20 sec's and do i have to do more reps or less reps.
Thanks for your help.

I have read about the version you are talking about, but I think that is better for endurance building. I read another version where you add 10 seconds of rest for each rep as you climb the pyramid and then when you hit failure you do 3-5 more sets to failure with 90 seconds rest between sets.

Allowing more rest is going to allow you to work the muscle fibers more in each set. You want to allow time for the blood to put energy back in the muscle if it is strength gains you are going for. The shorter rest periods would be used to get a good muscle pump when you are already sore from weeks of training and are looking for a good recovery routine.

got to agree with you CEO! 5 -15- 5 with only 10 seconds between is pretty good going. - if you're finding this easy, try to drop off the bar then back on as your rest, to really burn up!

Arms fully extended on the extension of every rep. I also like to emphasize this and push out to get a good lat stretch.
