Then I just went as I could.

Sets of 3 are smooth. There isn't nearly the ramp up on the heart rate. PL54 on IGx noted this as well.

Grip was fine, I did chalk up though every so often. I didn't wear a belt.

The DOMS from this lasted about 5 days.

113? Holy crap What was that guys DL max?

I just felt like I was starting to get stiff during the 30 minutes and then I knew I'd been standing around too long. Maybe next time I'll give it a double or triple at the top of the minute. Trying to do one ever 30 seconds started to get not fun after the first 15 minutes. I felt like by the time I put the bar down, stood up and took a few breaths it wsa time to get back in place an pull again.
