Default Mass (A) Gain Questions Before I Start...

Going to start the revised Mass Gain program soon and just wanted to clear some things up...

How long should rest periods be between sets?

Does the "3 x 75% of Tues" for pullups mean 75% of Tues' set 1, 75% of Tues' set 2 etc, or do you break up the total x .75 into 3 sets?

I know some excercises to throw in for core work, but can someone give me of an example of going "heavy" and "light" with this according to the day's lifting? What specifically to do, reps/weight/sets, etc.

If I wanted to throw in some grip work, when would be best and what are some suggestions for the most effective/transferrable exersises?

Thanks all.
