on the next exercise
bench 70% 15 reps / 2 sets
I figure you will be fatigued so take as much rest as needed to complete the next 15 reps
now on explosive deads he says in the book he has 15 secs between sets.
mind you explosive deads are 3 sets/ 8 reps at 60%.
Not heavy, but it really punished my hands last week, and i waited about a min between.
i try not to get caught up in the numbers that much just curious though
On power days, rest as much as you need to in order to complete the heavy set.
Explosive exercises are done quickly to increase metabolic fatigue as well. Don't worry, your hands will toughen up.
Basic guideline for powerlifting is to rest 5-10 minutes between heavy sets. Assistance exercises are done bodybuilding style.
There is a Cube group on facebook as well where you can ask questions.
