Agreed with Vido. Just go by how you feel. I usually take longer between sets when I'm doing Squats or DL's because they are so exhausting.

ok thanks

i usually take a minute break in between sets, usualy around 3 sets 8-10 reps ea.

The time of rest between sets depends usually on my intensity level and what rep range I'm using. For heavier sets of course I take a little longer of a rest period (up to 3 minutes) so I am fully recovered for the next set.
