    Hi Matt,

    It’s not necessarily a progression, but could be used as such.

    As for rest-pause, you rest until you feel ready for another rep, so anywhere from about 10 seconds to 60 seconds between reps. Early on you will feel very good, and the rest periods will generally be shorter.

    I have a question about the deadlift slump buster, is this like a progression (week 1-30×70%, week 2-20×75%, etc.) and when you say rest pause single reps, you mean do one rep, get set up , do one more til you react the goal # of reps? (like maybe 15s rest between sets)?
