I think you should change the quads, hamstring, and calves to Monday. Legs requires a lot of energy and effort to train properly. Two days of rest will ensure your body has sufficient reserves for the demands for training the legs. Training the biceps before the day you train the back is backwards. ...

My rest interval between sets is determined by the time it takes to recover my oxygen deficit. When I am training to increase muscle myofibrils mass I rest until my breathing returns to normal before I start my next set. It allows the level of ATP in the muscles being trained to increase, therefore ...
