    what do you guys think is optimal for strength gains? 5x3, 3x5, 5x5? how long do you guys rest for strength sets? I do 3 minutes but I'd like to 5 however I really hate being that guy hogging the bench. I'd literally be on it for 30 minutes if I did 5 minute rests on 5 sets.

    2x5, 3x3, 3x2

    At a minimum 5 minutes between sets. Even if you "feel" ready by 2 or 3 minutes, wait the entire 5.

    Lifted today and tomorrow then I'll be traveling for a few days visiting family. Definitely going to try to lift on those days though. Ordered some OLY shoes and wrist wrap. Ready for them to get in and use them.
