Default "Basic weight training" question

I just finished reading over the basic weight training article, and was wondering what the rest interval should be.

I assume you mean the Beginning Weight Training series.

This is from the comments in the last part, when someone asked about rest times: "Yes, use as much rest as you need to maintain rep count and form. If thatís 1 minute, take a minute. If itís 3 minutes, take 3 minutes."

It really does depend on the exercise and your recovery. It'll take some dialing in to get it down. Start with the higher times and work down to less, though. Its better to have a little bit too much rest than not quite enough until you find what works for you. No need to destroy yourself without reason.

At the beginner stages, due to the impact of fatigue on technique, etc. I'd be more inclined to use longer than shorter rests.

Why does the program call for more sets of shoulders than chest?
