Ryan is not, that small amoount of rest will allow him to smash through the last part of his workout without having any negative effect on his squat numbers.
but just my thoughts, now i had probably better do some work ROFL
The initial reduction in Ryan's progress on squat has been remedied.
Coming in cold was having more of an impact on his CNS as the load went up. By simply performing a warmup set of 5 or 6, at a reduced weight (it's not a predetermined amount at this point - just whatever he feels is easy to warmup with), he is now hitting PRs on almost every set.
Take a look at his numbers from earlier this week (coming soon).
