I'd be a little confused at some of your workout notes had I not asked a while back about how you write certain things. Some things I menatlly fill in. Like when you started adding "?" I assumed that was just close to as many as possible.
Close, it means the rep range is rather unimportant so failure could be till 4 or it could be till 30. Basically it's just a form of autoregulation to help account for fatigue.
The (2)(2) x ? is like a rest pause, pick a top set then do as many as you can but stop with one in the tank, stop and rest for less than 15 seconds then go until complete failure. That's one (2), take a minute or two to recover, drop the weight down and do another round. So a (2)(2) is actually four short sets which I usually superset. You can get 8 rather quality sets without getting too worn out.
