Between an exercise that is made up of 4 sets and the next one you can rest for up to 2 minutes. The EC is if you do it for 1 minute :)

up to 2 minutes rest between exercises
Different workouts and even programs use this pattern, a shorter rest between sets and a longer rest between exercises, that's what I meant.

@HellYeah but the rest between exercise is NOT specified it may be 30 seconds or 2 minute.
(And EC is wrong).

@broli the workout states 20 seconds rest between sets. Each exercise has 4 sets. So you rest 20 seconds before you do it again. Once you have completed all the sets of one exercise then as @HellYeah said you may go to the next one and you can wait for 30 seconds, 60 seconds or 2 minutes. The EC is at 1 minute because in testing we found no one took shorter rest time. I hope this helps clarify it.

I see thanks.

Rest between sets is stated but rest between exercises is NOT specified as in the HellYeah sample.

So one cannot know, sometimes it is not 2 minutes (or less if you feel to).
I remember an old thread where https://darebee.com/workouts/superhero-strength-plus-workout.html and https://darebee.com/workouts/superhero-stretch-workout.html have 30 seconds rest and it is still not specified.

It would be nice if WO states it.

EC should be changed to:
Extra Credit: 1 minute rest between sets exercises.
