Repeat until Failure or near Failure.

Folk's performance differs.

Generally you'll get 7 to 12 reps the first day...

If you progress from a max of 7 Reps to a max of 12 reps—you will be considerably stronger.

{12 is generally the target Rep, so it is time to add a bit of weight...}

Sounds interesting. I've done other types of what I would call rest-pause. I've probably done this variation too, but maybe so long in the past that I've forgotten. Sounds like my sort of thing - I'd like to give this a go on a whole bunch of exercises. Thanks for posting.
