I just finished my 2nd week of WBB#1 with my dad and have a few questions. First is, what do you guys reccomend for breaks between sets and between different exercises, my dad doesn't seem to see the importance in this. Second is, why is every exercise only 2 sets at the most? Right when I feel I really get into the weight I'm done with my 2nd set. Would it be beneifical to cut out an exercise of each and make every other one 3 sets, to keep the time down, but expand on the exercises, or is there reasoning for keeping it only at 2.
I usually rest 45-60 seconds between sets. Sometimes longer if I'm going heavy and short in the reps.
How long does the whole workout take you, Deltaa?
Each one takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

That's the right length of time for a workout. You could try increasing the # sets to 3 - just make sure you keep the whole workout under an hour.
Add some warm-up sets before you lift the 2 working sets. 50% or so of what you plan on lifting for the working sets.
And if you don't feel "into the weight" by set 2, up the amout of weight you are lifting, so you DO feel it.
Think of the routine as a foundation, and eveyone usually will build up from there designing the routine to meet their goals.
