Default Rest Time Importance

How important are the rest intervals for the Mon-Tue depletion workouts?

From what i understand , the purpose of short rest periods is the generation of lactic acid, which increase GH levels, which in turn helps with fat mobilization (not sure if this is correct or not).

What % of importance does this play in the grand scheme of things vs "doing all the sets in the correct rep/tempo range" for glycogen depletion ? And couldn't GH be more easily raised with intermittent fasting (which makes sense as a meal partitioning tool given the low calories)?

Thank you

What's the point of raising GH when nutrients are not present in the body?

What % does it play? No idea. You are majoring in the minors. Just do as the book says and enjoy the results.

They are important to properly deplete glycogen. IIRC: the shorter the rest period, the more exhausted the muscle is when you start the next set, the more glycogen will be used.

Ty.

Squat, i wanted to know about the magnitude of the relevance, was it indispensable to the depletion process, an extra 5% boost or in between. But solid contribution to my question, thank you very much.

I jump at the opportunity to quantify things arbitrarily.

I have been alternate-pairing my exercises on glycogen depletion days and it seems to work well with rest periods

e.g. Leg Press 1x15-20 > move straight to Leg Curl 1x15-20. That seems to be roughly 60-75 seconds between same-muscle groups. Do that 3x then repeat the whole thing again for a total of 6x sets.
