Abstract Resume

Background: Because of the recognized health benefits, resistance training (RT) has become an integral part of a fitness program. In this context, the rest period between sets is one
of the determinants of exercise intensity and consequently the results obtained and for this reason must be controlled. The easiest manner to control the rest period between sets is through
wristwatch/stopwatch. Objetive: (1) to describe rest period between sets reported by RT practitioners; (2) to verify whether RT practitioners control the rest period between sets; and (3) to verify
how the RT practitioners control the recovery time between sets. Methods: Study participants were 320 subjects (164 men and 154 women; aged: 33.5 ± 13.0 years). About 62% of
participants had experience of six months or more with RT. Participants were recruited from gyms from the municipalities of Goiânia (GO) and Vitória (ES). In order to meet the objectives, a
questionnaire was created. This questionnaire was divides in two parts: 1-personal data (occupation, education level and existing diseases) and 2-physical training characteristics.
Results: Regarding the rest interval between sets, 9% have adopted 15 seconds, 28% have adopted 30 seconds, 17% have adopted 45 seconds, 32% have adopted 60 seconds, 3% have adopted
90 seconds, 1% has adopted more than 90 seconds and 10% reported not control the break between sets, and 83% of total reported control rest interval between sets. However, only 25% of participants use
wristwatch, despite 77% know that the rest interval between sets influences the intensity of the exercise and 72% know that control of the rest interval between sets is a determining factor in the RT
results. Conclusion: Although the literature shows the influence of rest interval between sets in adaptations related to RT, the participants of this study did not control the
recovery period between sets and possibly the desired results are not achieved.
