CNS and More Reps Per Set

When doing the main lift on best damn strength program for Naturals. Would it be ok to do a few set of 1 or 2 reps before the all out set?

I feel like this gets me more ready for a Max rep set and allows me to get more reps maybe because its getting my CNS jacked up?

Example say my bench 85% is 275

I would do 2 or 3 sets of 1 or 2 explosive reps, and then perform my set of all out reps.
Thank you

Absolutely fine, these sets wont take anything out of you and if performance is better than it’s a good investment. Just don’t turn it into a maxing out session before the work set
