I saw this post yesterday and started kicking myself in the arse. This is an excellent suggestion. i didn't even think about using a technique like rest pause. I could have taken the opportunity to do rest pause or even something like GVT. I have the next 2 days off from the gym, so I'm going to do some homework on rest pause routines.

As for the rest/pause sets, I do like them. You get really solid lifting in a short time. Wouldn't be a bad idea to try them out. I use 7 sets, with 30-30-60-60-90-120 seconds rest between.
Thanks T-bone. Didn't take it as back handed at all. I'm going to take a close look at what you're doing and maybe do a bit of research on my own. By any chance do you have any good links to some rest pause routines?
