Default ME Black Box question

In PM issue 17, it states (paraphrased) that you are supposed to add weight with each rep. Heres how Im translating it in my head, how right or wrong am I?

Idea one:
5x5 week - 80% your one rep max, adding 5 pounds every set
5x3 week - 90% your one rep max, adding 5 pounds every set
5x1 week - one rep max, add weight until 5 sets or until cant go any heavier

Idea two:
start at 80 or 85% your one rep max, add 5 pounds every set, then next week, just start at whatever weight you left off at.

Either one of these right or does it mean a different method?
