the ideal rest between sets?

hey a question for lance , it's about the bss 4x15reps.
Well with the current goals you gave me, which is to reach 4x15 with 20kg dumbbells.
What am i suppose to be focusing on in terms of reps,sets, and rest between sets?
well theres like 5reps heavy weight lifting, which emphasize on strength, then there is this 15reps which is focused on volume.
So I'm sure i'm focusing on volume here right?
if so, how important are the rest time?
cause I know ppl rest between 2-5minutes for real heavy lifting or either full recovery in between sets.
But when training for volume, its about less than a minute right?

how about this 4x15 reps thing? i rest about 30-40 seconds in between legs.
which woudl add up to more than a minute.


So then my question is,
 how long should i rest? what am I aiming for in terms of resting? full recovery? get my heart rate/breathign rate down to normal? or get it down to a certain point but above the normal breathing rate( please do elaborate on the certain point if it is)?

well then thats all

thanks alot again

 the reason youre doing 15 reps is because you said you didnt have any more weight than that.  Rest enough between sets to fully recover and no more.   :o
Relax.

yeah lance but well i told u i had membership, just that i dotn think i was ready.
so you aasked me what was the heaviest weight i have at home, todl you 10kg dbs, and i reached the goal.
then you gave me a new goal of reaching 20kg, so thats when i asked if you think i was ready to hit the gym which was frozen due to my injuries and you said yeah.

so anyways, not sure if you would see this before i ehad off, but anyways, since i'm hitting the gym now, i guess a new routien for me?
also, when you say full recover, that would mean i shouldnt feel like puking after workout yeah? assuming full recovery = to muscle ready as well as breathing rate stable?

thx

 Yes, go to the gym so that you have access to more resistance.

 Yes, change your routine to incorporate some basic barbell lifts.

 
 Stop worrying so much about minutia, rest according to how you feel, and get stronger.  The things you need to be worried about are adding more weight to the bar, and how your squat form is, not rest intervals and whats happening on a cellular level in the endocrine system.
Relax.

lance is full of shit, you should rest between 90-92 seconds between sets. anything else is too short or too long.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

ah right okay just scared i rest too long. so i shouldnt be pukin gor having that feeling then.

so then what do you think about the introductory block?
i did that ytd, but squats and including leg presses provoked my tailbone.

Really weird.
if i squeeze my glutes real hard for a few secondsand not arch my back to stretch my back to release the stiffness, it wont hurt and the tension will go away slowly.

split squat didnt hurt as bad as squats/LP.

Weir thing is i did 45degree back extension, and not a single tension in my tailbone.

so well anyways lance,I guess  a new program for me  ? so like how many reps sets, and what exercises this time?'


thanks
