The training consisted of seven exercises: chest press, leg press, lateral pull-down, triceps pushdown, knee extension, seated row, and bicep curl.
In order to examine the effect of different rest intervals on the workout volume completed (sets x resistance x repetitions per set), an 8-RM was assessed on three nonconsecutive days for the barbell bench press (BBP), incline barbell bench press (IBBP), pec deck flye (PDF), barbell lying triceps extension (BLTE), and triceps pushdown (TPD) with the highest 8-RM load used to design the two exercises sessions.
After two familiarization sessions, the 10 repetition-maximum (10RM) tests were assessed during two non-consecutive days in the same sequence: leg press (LP), bench press (BP), leg extension (LE), pec-deck (PD), leg curl (LC) and triceps pushdown (TP).
