Keep it up, though, good progress --I'm not sure I could handle all that squatting after all those DL sets. How long do you rest in between work sets?
I'm talking about 5RM.
According to my android app, I'm already past 300 1RM for squat, and my bench is really
close to 225. My 1 RM in DL still has a way to go for 350.
I take roughly 3-5 minutes in between heavy DL sets.
I'll also take 3-5 minutes between heavy squats, OHP, and bench.
For the ten sets of three, I take one minute
. It's really freakin' tough when you hit sets 6-10! The sweat really starts pouring as it's kinda like heavy-ass cardio. The reps are "dynamic effort" which basically means exploding up fast while maintaining control. This time, I did okay with the bar speed, but I don't feel like I really hit my stride until about set 7. Still getting used to them, but they're fun imo.
