My .02, take some time between singles, 3-5 min or so. If they are really hard core lifts like the ones that hurt in your teeth type singles, maybe 7 min.
Just saying max efforts should take some time to recover from. If not, they weren't max efforts.
We're alike, you and I. Just push it when you can and don't back off unless you absolutely have to. It is a journey.
Thank you, MikeM. I'll take all that under advisement. You're right. The sensible approach is best, especially at our age.

So the concensus between you and MikeM might be to rest long enough to make a Number 1, but not long enough for a Number 2? Dang.
No, seriously though, I remember BBG one time telling me to try to work up to 5 singles resting only a minute between attempts. I think he's loco. Turns out he's superhuman. A couple minutes seems fair, especially now since I'm not in PR territory yet. I'm going through a lot of volume to get up to my singles too. Rest seems important.
