I'm assuming this means 5 sets of 6-8 reps, what does the 3-0-x-0, 90's mean. I'm assuming 90's is 90 seconds rest between sets? What about the rest?

The parameters for this routine are listed as follows:

Sequence. Exercise: Sets x Reps @ Tempo, Rest Interval



A1. Front squat: 5 x 6-8 @ 3-0-X-0, 90s


In this example, the tempo of 3-0-X-0 refers to 3 seconds down, no pause at the bottom, eXplode upward, and no pause at the top.
