chris - gotta keep those pecs pumped Wink

Re - squat drop sets I take about 20 secs rest, basically the time it takes me to strip a plate off each side then back under the bar again. On my heavy sets I usually only take about 3 mins cos I train alone so get bored sitting round between sets (the wife would be on the phone if I was taking hours to train lol..
