My warmup looks something like this:

45 -5x3
135 x5
185 x3
225 x2
275 x1
325 x1

I Can't do a bunch of higher reps then squat a working set for 5x3.

High reps get the blood flowing and loosen you up, but can also waste energy.
Yup. If I tried 275 x5 before moving on, I'd be about useless afterward.
Rest In Peace Dad! I love you!!!!

And if you have to go H-2-H, unload your holster gun first and rely on your concealed BUG, so that if the nut-job gets your holster gun it will be empty.
