Default Enough rest between sets?

Iím currently doing 30 min personal training sessions 3 times a week, lifting heavy in an effort to bulk. To squeeze all sets and reps in, I typically have less than 1 min rest between sets, and often feel fatigued and rushed. Can these short breaks between sets be hampering my growth? Iíve heard when lifting heavy 2-3 mins rest between sets is ideal.

A minute to two is ok three is better but is up to the person/weight and reps.

If you're training for strength then I believe more rest is ideal. 3-5 minutes or even more if you need it.

If you're training for size and don't care about strength (hypertrophy focus only) then low rest is usually utilized to keep the muscles fatigued and pumped.

What I had been doing was for my main compound lift (bench, squats, deads, MP) I would try to shoot for 2min rest and maybe let it bump up to 3min if I needed it on heavier days. Then for my accessory work I tried to keep rest intervals to around 1 min.
