5 @ 40-50% 1RM (i.e. a light load)
3 @ 60% (i.e. a moderate load)
1 @ 75% (i.e. a moderately heavy load)
1 @ 85% (i.e. a heavy load)
1 @ 95%-102% (i.e. near maximal/maximal load)
1 @ last load plus a “pinch” (i.e. only if previous load was safely performed with good form)

NB – Use a belt above 85% 1RM! Do not be greedy! Never sacrifice form! Have spotters or know what to do for failing! Have a clear working space!
