Morning Star: 10 Reps at TM Weight, How Many Reps Per Set?

Ok, I know this is going to sound dumb, but when it calls for 10 reps at the TM weight in as many sets as you need, how many reps should you hit a set? 5 reps x 2 sets? 2 reps x 5 sets? 3 reps x 3 sets and a single?

I know that they should be solid reps, so would it be ok to cut it off quickly(ex: stop at 3 reps when you could get 5 for a set)?

Am I overthinking this?

Yes.

All sets/reps should be done with some explosiveness - in other words, don’t fail. Generally, no set over 5 reps and then fill in as you see fit. We generally aim to get this done in 10 minutes.
