Hi /fit/, I have a question. What are the benifits/drawbacks of doing an exercise repeatedly throughout the day. Like, say I had my own squat rack so I don't have to worry about convenience. If I could barely finish my first set of squats, and know I'm going to fail my second, would it be good to just wait an hour before trying again so that I am nearly fully recovered? Maybe do some other exercises first, and then come back to squats after? Or is there a significant advantage to doing all of your sets back to back? This would probably be most relevant with chinups/pullups. If I try to do sets of chinups to failure the rep count goes something like 8/4/3. But If I do sets of 5 with a good rest in between them, I can easily do 40-50 in a day. How would the results compare between these two methods?

Nobody knows or even has experience with this type of thing? It just seems like you could stall much less often at the beginning if doing 3 sets of 5 spaced an hour apart really does have nearly the same effect as doing them 5 minutes apart.
