    Well firstly a few guidelines:

    1) Don't go for more than 2-4 reps.

    2) Don't use more than around 85% of your max unless you've got a spotter. In other words, you should be doing those 2-4 reps with weight you can handle easily for 6-10.

    3) 3 seconds is about prime length for a pause. Any longer isn't really necessary, and shorter can still be beneficial.

    4) If you have any doubts for God's sake use a spotter.
