I prefer smaller jumps but fewer reps the closer I get to a working set. The later reps are primarily for CNS stimulation, since the body is warmed and the groove is greased, so to speak.

Perhaps:

60 x 5
85 x 3
100 x 1
115 x 1
130 x 1

This many warmup sets might be a pain, so this would work as well as long as you feel ok:

60 x 5
85 x 3
100 x 1
120 x 1

Really annoyed about this , but maybe the extra deadlift work fecked me upů.we will see next week.
It will take a few weeks to adapt. Don't get frustrated on those 20 reppers. Keep focusing on progression as opposed to performance. 20 reppers are brutal and I never get 20 reps the first time.
