4- Reduce Rest Time:

The final method that would increase muscle overload is reducing the rest time between sets. Depending on the load and exercise, you could be resting for a minute or more between sets.

If you reduce the time between sets, you’re improving the metabolic efficiency of your anaerobic system. It will also reduce the amount of time you spend during your workout, which isn’t a bad thing.

Don’t do a drastic cut in rest time between sets at first. If you normally rest for 30 seconds between sets, reduce your rest time to 20 seconds. If you can still complete the remaining sets with perfect form, then go down to 15 seconds.
