Weighted Chin Ups, Rest Periods

Hi! I did 5x5 chin ups with an additional 7.5kg today, which matches my personal best. However, I need more rest to do these than I do with the deadlift or squats. To do 5x5 today I needed almost 25 minutes whereas I needed nearly 20 for the 5x5 squats. Is this too long? If so, what should I do to address the issue? Form is good except for the last rep of the last set.

It is not an issue.


Try 5kgs for 7 reps
