I was reading about this technqiue and it makes alot of sence to me. The only question I have about it is, how much should I do. Do you do it only on you first main exercise or with every exercise? I train H.i.T style and this looks like a good add on.
Do you also do it with smaller muscle groups like bis/tris?

there are many versions of rest pause. many hit proponents use it but, use it in different forms. i use it for a few weeks at a time. one sets of three to four exercise for the big muscle groups and only two exercises, one set each on the small groups. i will rep tp failure and rack the bar. ill wait ten seconds or ten deep breathes then try to rep out again. usually only getting two more reps. other versions of rest pause involves doing a weight that only allows one rep then reracking the weight. keep going until no more reps can be accomplished. mentzer in the 80's talked of this technique quite often. but, tyhat version has recently fell out of favor due to the fact that injury was common. either way , it is a effective technique to add intensity to your workouts.

Here is what I am doing......


I try and go up every week in weight or a couple more reps. But anyways I will do as many as I can till faliure...I do not count reps, my partner does.

Then I will try and hold he weight and not set it down...my now your muscles are screaming....I take 12 breaths...then I do as many as I can till faliure....try and hold it....then do as many as I can....static hold for 10 secs. You are done....Your muscle are just screaming.......

Rest pause is a good technique to use for taking your sets to failure and beyond. My 20 rep squat sets are rest paused, pausing at the top, keeping the weight on my back. A lot of times I will rest pause with dumbbells by somehow resting them on my body while I take about 10 breaths.

However, the question you have to ask yourself is this: will your body be able to handle it? If you're training HIT then your sets are already pretty intense. Many people overtrain by going to failure, nevermind PAST failure, on every set. If you're on a cutting diet, or coming off a cycle, I would advise against adding too many rest/pause sets. Give it a shot, but try to notice how it affects recovery.
