Default Treadmill Walking Between Sets

Anyone ever walk in between sets? Would this be expected to have negative impact in on lifting performance/results?

Sometimes itís just so boring to be doing nothing for 2-4 minutes, walking makes the time go by quicker.

I always move a little bit at or around the place I perform the exercise. When I sit and do nothing, I tend to lose my focus and become tired/lazy.

Isn't it annoying to go to the treadmill each time you've completed a set? And how do you keep your weights/machine occupied when walking on the treadmill?

Nope. I have power blocks & treadmill at home 2 feet away from each other. Easy transition.

That is actually a good way to introduce LISS cardio into training which can have benefits.

In the article, exactly as stated- there are the cost benefit points to definitely enhanced recovery and reduced soreness at the cost of MAYBE blunting adaptive response.

I just do 10 mins LISS cycling after a workout.

Thanks. Good to know. Walking in between sets hasnít seemed to hurt progress, and it sure is a nice way to get LISS in.

Do you ever go longer than 10 mins? If so, notice any difference?

I keep it to 10 minutes post-workout, because I hate indoors cardio. Since it's cold weather now, I also do 5-10 mins warm-up on bike before lifting weights.

But I often take a long walks about an hour post-workout. Doesn't seem to negatively impact me.

2-4 minute rest in between sets seems extremely excessive. your rest between sets should be 30-60 seconds

Rest depends on what you are doing. Strength training, hypertrophy, HITT, etc.

What a non-sense (unless you're doing UD2.0). If you really can get away with 30-60 seconds rest in between sets, your intensity is horrible or you're a complete newbie.
