I don't like the idea of going max effort on the first set. I'd much rather let the engine warm up before flooring it.
Reading a thorough explanation now, thanks for the tip.

I completely agree with the engine analogy, I guess I didn't specify what warmups would consist of.

Typical squat warmup for instance:

Foam roll for 10 minutes to get loose
Goblet squat position, sitting in the hole also help loosen up

Warmup sets (% of top set weight)
25% x 5
40% x 5
60% x 3
