Rest between sets, 5x5?

I recently started doing frankie ny's 5 x 5, and have just been doing like anything between 1-2 minutes between sets. What would you recommend i do for a 5 x 5.

    My rest is when my training partner(brother) is doing his set

    i've read a few different 5x5 routines and it seems to average at 90secs between sets and 3 mins between exercises.

    Yep Jesus, that's about the mark. for squat, deads and two a lesser extent bench press, i would rest up to 3 minutes between sets (although, for brevity of the routines sake-no more than 3 mins). for other exercises between 90s and 2mins.

    Rest however long you think you need.

    If you are only having 1 mins rest between sets during strength training and you can cope then try upping the weight.

    I find 2-3 minutes works best for me when training for strength
