I have three questions surrounding an alternative scheme to the one set of twenty for super squats. One involves reps and sets, the other involves weight changes and lastly recovery time.
How many reps and set would be a good alternative to super squats(1 set of 20)?
With multiple sets how you suggests weight changes between sets
a) no weight changes, same weight for all sets
b) 5% reduction in weight between sets
c) 5 pound reduction in weight between sets
d) 10% reduction in weight between
e) 10 pound reduction in weight between sets
Rest time between sets
b. >5 min
c. d. >3 min
So all these questions are related to each other and I can see more than one good answer.
I am leaning towards two options
2 sets of 15 reps...identical weight for sets...>5 min rest between sets
2 sets..identical weight...>5 min rest. First set, get 12 reps. Second set get 8 reps.

For most of us, you'd need to qualify what it is you are squatting for, but I suppose since this is a throwing forum, to enhance throws? Anyway, to what end?
If I have guessed correctly, unless you are trying to add bodyweight (in the off-season) or trying to do some early pre-season conditioning, these set/rep patterns would be all wrong for throwers, certainly in season or if followed too long.
I think it would likely leave them rubber-legged and worn down.
Tell us more.
