Default MEBB Rep Scheme

I understand that the MEBB reps are

5x5
5x3
5x1

and that for each of these you want to work up to a ME within that weeks rep range.

Are these supposed to be ramping sets like a Bill Star type 5x5 where you start at 50-60% of 1 RM and only do one really heavy set? Or are you supposed to warm-up and then do 5 heavy work sets increasing each one slightly?
