I think what you'll find is this is a little different for beginners vs intermediate/advanced lifters.

A new trainee can probably use about the same weight through all five sets.

But a more advanced trainee will probably have to work up to one heaviest set of five. Another option is to work up to one heavy set, then the next set would be 90% of the weight used at the top set.
