    What about rest between warmup sets? I always used to just go through my warmups as fast I could, doing fewer reps as the weight goes up until I'm at a single or two. I'm not used to the bridge method of using the work set reps for all warmup sets.

    If I were working my way up and "feeling" for an @6 from scratch (I prefer to have a rough estimate of where it would occur instead) and didn't rest in between warmups I would hit an @6 at a lower weight than I could have due to fatigue. So obviously some rest is required using this method. But how much? I don't want to waste too much time on warmups because I have a feeling the workouts are going to get long once I hit week 2.
    No need to rest between your warm up sets, and you should adjust to the volume soon. Your work capacity just needs to go up. :-)

    Rest on the bridge

    In The Bridge when an exercise calls for [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] x 3 sets, are you supposed to rest 4 to 5 minutes between the rpe 6, rpe 7 and rpe 8 sets or to you work all the way up to the rpe 8 set without rest?
