Also a good spotter to unrack the barbell and don't waist energy in this manner.

PS.
Nice excel chart!!
thanks haha. so even with a high volume workout like that you rest longer? there were definitely some sets in the past couple weeks that i could've gotten if i'd rested longer. actually, i've been working on short rests for a while now, so switching up to longer rests sounds like a good way to add some variation.
