    I am a big fan of singles for intensity day Tiny, and as much rest as I feel I need between reps.

    Back in '21 I was on heavy bench and press on same day and it was pretty tough on my old shoulders. Much better for me to split those up.

    If you don't mind me asking, do you remember how much rest you'd typically need between press singles?

    One of the reasons why I decided to introduce this into my program was to do a bit of a recce for my husband. He cannot bench at the moment, but pressing 3 times per week in a NLP fashion doesn't seem to do the trick for him anymore. I'm exploring his options for a change in programming. Given that you two are the roughly the same age and size, I'd be curious to know how much rest I should recommend as a starting point for him (he tends to not rest enough between sets).

    I think a change in programming would also help with his compliance. While I enjoy doing always the same stuff in the gym, he has a thing for variety and often throws random sets after his planned work sets (and sometimes, in lieu of). I figure we might as well take advantage of that enthusiasm for variety but structure it properly. Timing is good now that the garage gym is up and serviceable for the summer. He won't have to worry about hitting the beams of the basement's ceiling anymore, which should help him make further progress.

    My rest periods for intensity day varies. I used to try and keep it to a fixed time, like 5 minutes, but now I go more by feel. I stopped trying to stay within a fixed time frame. I can go as high as 10 minutes some days. I honestly don't have the energy to push harder and keep numbers going in the right direction.
