Actually, I have been waiting for your results. I recommend five minute rests...I have no idea why anybody would do any less. My teenage boys doing this program could NOT get up the next day after squats. I still think people don't take this program serious enough.

I will see if I can find the original...

Now, when I did this, we switched Weeks One and Two and did the Overload squats on both weeks, not the Overhead.

Paul Northway, high school kid, started the squats with 405. After five "reps," he jumped. He basically passed out between sets...

Hmmmm. That would have been useful information. I should have read closer. I guess I don't feel so bad that I felt soooo bad......

Even so, tough to say if I would have found anything different or not vis a vis the blubber situation with longer rests. I suspect with any super challenging program like this is difficult to stay hypocaloric.

I know it's sort of a moving target but next week I want try a straight up 5x5x5 program to see if I can keep improving my strength base while in the red calorie wise. I suspect this is more sustainable during deblubberification. Definitely will come back to the OLAD stuff maybe with the plyo's as described above as my strength base continues to build.
