Lance, myo rep question for unilateral training

Hey Lance, How would you set up myo reps for unilateral training? More specifically bulgarian split squats. would you myo rep one side first going through the activation set and and the myo reps before moving to the next leg? or what I've been trying is myo reps with bulgarian split squats, but I will use the activation set for my left leg then rest 5 seconds to catch my breath then switch legs and do the activation set for my right leg. My right leg which is my strongest always end up doing only like half of what left leg achieves. I keep switching legs on the myo rep sets as well. I'm curious how you would do this or if you would. I really like the myo rep philosophy and more importantly how time efficient and effective it is. any thoughts?

here's an example

bulgarian split squats x 45lb bar
left leg 23 very close to failure , right leg 14 very close to failure, left leg 6, right leg 6, left leg 6, right leg 6, left leg 6, right leg
and so on.
Goal

windmill consistently/ touch top of the square consistently



weight= 193
height= 6'3 1/2
highest touch= top of the square, which is 11'4

  Do all reps/ rest pause on the weak side first, rest ~5min, then do strong side in the same manner.  Dont go over the total from the weak side with the strong leg until the weaker leg catches up, shouldnt take long if you do it this way.
Relax.
