Before I list all the exercise specifics, please heed this advice: the 5-Factor is a program I not only want you to try but also to complete. So stick to the rest times and rep ranges as well as you can, but if occasionally you need the extra rest or can’t finish out a set, don’t punish yourself by quitting.
