It says I should do one set of squats with 20 reps. Now do I use the same weight I used when I was doing reps 3-5? Or is it a lighter weight that I used for when I was doing warm up sets?

Also, the workouts have also taken me about two hours to finish. Is this too long or should there be a specific amount of time I should adhere to?
Looks to me like the 20 rep squats are a feeder set...

meaning, choose a a lighter weight than your working sets. a weight that the last few reps are more challenging for endurance than sheer pounds....don't use a weight that risks your form breaking down... bad squatting is very bad!

2 hours is a long workout, but ok if you feel ok.

I should for 45-60 minutes but it's all good if you can get your reps and recover by the next workout.
