Is More or Less Rest Better For Hypertrophy?


This week we have Jerred, Joe, and Ashley on the podcast. They are looking at a study on longer vs. shorter rest times and which is more beneficial for training. Spoiler-looks like the team found a different takeaway and didn't find a conclusive answer on the rest times. This week's Meet Yourself Saturday workout is called Fat and Sugar! It's a great one to work on heart rate zones so make sure to crush this workout!
