this is the one time i'll advocate low weight....

with this exercise a lot can go wrong. you have to get used to it & get to the point where your naturally ready for anything that goes wrong

eventually you should find your grove and im sure it will work great for you (i need to start doing this also... lately ive done it at end of workouts to work on the getting used to it, but it still feels wierd to me.

it depends on your goals. i would go longer rest periods once things get heavy, but right now since your using light weights to get used to it, keep it to 30 seconds or so (if this feels like enough time to safely do the next sets).
