Steve - my two cents
IMO the metabolic load is much more signifigant in a set of 10 vs 2 sets of 5, especailly if the set of 10 is unbroken. Even if both workouts were done in the same amount of time I can tell you personally after my set of 10 DL or my set of 10 squat cleans the wave of nauseau hits a few seconds after setting down the bar (although I don't know how it would vary with doing 10x5 with quicker time?).

By the lower rep sets I'm crushed but don't quite have the same degree of nauseau, course it could also be that I was slowing down.
