I'm doing the 50/20 deal right now but as I determine to peak I will come back down closer to 20 reps for a little more rest and more strength sets (less then 5 reps).

Were you controlling the rest periods or allowing complete recovery? or am I misreading and you are just doing fewer reps at higher percentages in 20 min?
