isn't part of the point of rest-pause that you only have to do one set? e.g. 10+3+3+3+2 done.

no, thats a myo rep scheme you listed there.  also, the rest pause variation is in my blog under time efficient training for athletes, its different than dc style/myo reps in several ways.
Relax.

Lance about reps for rest pause: wouldn't it be holding back if you stop when your reps aren't as explosive like on squats and bench?

Should you be going to failure on rest pause sets? Im kind of not sure about that yet. It's hard to gauge when im not being as explosive on the lift anymore.

Thanks

You need to go back and re read what I said earlier so you dont have to keep asking the same shit man. You keep going as long as youre not GRINDING the reps up.  Any rep that has a definitive sticking point and the weight stops moving for any period of time whatsoever, that is the last one.
Relax.

Hey Lance, why is it bad to GRIND the reps up when squatting?

Is it bad to try to do a couple more reps after you hit your first sticking point rep?
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"

Also I have a question about nutrition. So far my diet has been very good except sometimes my weight goes up and down. On Wednesday I weighed like 156, Friday I weighed like 157, today I weighed 155. I was kind of hungry last night even after eating cc and almonds (I get about 15g of fat before bed+ the cc) but I just slept it off. Felt tired today and I had less energy. My sleep schedule has also been off...been going to bed like 11pm but cant sleep until 1 am and I end up waking up at 10-11 am. Ive been getting like 290g of protein, 280g of carbs, and 102g of good fats a day consistently...so adds up to about 3200 cals. Ive been spreading it out in about 3-4 big meals of 600-800 cals and added 3 whey shakes in a day. I get 20g whey pre and post workout with 30g carbs post workout. Any tips for my diet and macro layout?

Can my meal after my pwo whey shake and grape juice consist of 70g protein, 70g carbs, and 15g fat? Or should I be avoiding fat completely in my meal after the pwo shake and carbs.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks for your time.


your ghr form is much better this time, good job on that.  Only thing you need to fix now is keep from over arching your back on the way up. Start the movement with the low abs, pull your knees into the bad as if you were going to do a knee raise and keep back locked in.

dont worry about counting calories so much man, get 1.5 or more x bw in protein each day, adjust the fats and carbs according to energy levels and bodyfat loss/gain. 

youre making very good progress squatting the way you are with the timed rests, so as long as youre making progress you may want to stay with that.
Relax.
