16. Listen to your body.
I usually don't rest much between sets, unless I'm doing supersets or gearing up for something like running the rack. I'll probably take a full minute/minute and a half before tackling that. It helps me focus on what I'm about to do and psyche myself up to convince myself to finish it.

If your form is at all sloppy, you're using too much weight. There *is* something to be said for doing cheats to break a plateau or just as a quick change up to the usual workout. But, if as the norm, your form isn't precise then you probably have too much weight.
