Curious what does the warmup sets look like for SS?

In "The New Rules of lifting" by Alwyn Cosgrove and Lou Schuler he recommends something like this for squat/deadlift 45 x 5, 95 x 4, 135 x 3, 185 x 2, 225 x 1...etc until you get near working weight so if your first working set is 315 then 275 x 1, 315 x 1 for upper bench/row/overhead press they recommend something akin to 45 x 5, 95 x 3, 135 x 1, 185 x 1...etc I usually take minimal rest during these warmup sets basically enough to switch out the weight.
