The rest pause method is an old school training method used by Russian athletes as a means to focus on high quality strength repetitions. Instead of doing 5 reps in one set, you would actually perform 5 single repetitions, with the bar being rack for a brief second in between reps. This way each rep is performed with a focus as if it was one rep, making sure intent for each movement is highest. This also allows for potentially more reps to be performed with a heavier load, due to the increase in rest between sets. The setup would look something like this
5 reps of the squat – 80% 1RM max intent
Unrack the bar, squat
Rack the bar shake out legs
Repeat for 5 reps
