5*5 again

hi guys, have read a few threads on this, just about to finish 4 weeks of pre exhaust and drop setting so fancy a bit of a change. Just wondering looking at peoples routines etc there appears to be no warm up sets is this right? also how long should the rest periods be, if any, between sets?

Thanks for your time

    2 warm up sets then either 5 sets with the same weight or 3, depending on your preference.

    Rest, as long as you like until you feel ready to go, sometimes over 5 minutes when I was doing deadlifts.

    The rest periods will be extra long with 5*5, upto 5 minutes as Golden Arrow says. You'll know if you're using the correct intensity on all your sets because you will need such long rest intervals.
