Re: CFSB - Ask your questions here!

I started CFSB about a week ago and doing the 3x3 DLs brought up a question for me. In between reps, what is an acceptable "reset time"? With lighter weights and a higher rep protocol, the plate pretty much just taps the ground before it's up again, but I found when I was doing the 3x3 DLs, I would rest the weight on the ground for 1/2 a second to a second as I quickly repositioned for the next lift. Is this what the programmers had in mind when they prescribed the 3x5 and 5x3 set/rep schemes, or should the weight just tap the ground like it does for the high-rep protocols, even at the heavier loads?
