This study examined the effect of rest interval length on repeated one-repetition maximum (1-RM) bench press performance. Sixteen male college students (age = 22±2 yrs) who were experienced in the bench press exercise volunteered for this investigation. On the first laboratory visit the subjects' 1-RM was determined. The next four test sessions involved performing the 1-RM attempt two times, with the intertrial interval being 1, 3, 5, or 10 min. The results of a Cochran Q test found on significant (p > 0.05) difference in the ability to repeat a successful maximal bench press based on the rest interval lengths tested. These findings are consistent with previous research indicating a rapid return in maximal force production capabilities following a fatiguing task. These results indicate that 1-min rest intervals are sufficient for recovery between maximal strength tests.
