Madcow...Workout A is actually the hardest of the week. It will use the new weight increase for a set of 5 reps, where on the previous Friday you performed only 3 reps with this weight. In addition, your ramping sets will all be slightly heavier than the ramped sets from last Friday's workout.

So Mondays will have more intensity. Fridays have less volume, and less average intensity per rep.

Let's look at this example.

Week 1
MONDAY - 135, 185, 225, 275, and then 315 for 5 reps. 5675 pounds total.

FRIDAY - 135, 185, 225, 275 for 5 reps. 325 for 3 reps, 225 for 8 reps. 5500 pounds total.

Week 2
MONDAY - 145, 195, 235, 285, and then 325 for 5 reps. 5925 pounds total.

The volume increase from Monday to Monday is 250 pounds, as the average intensity per rep has gone up.
