Which template are you referring to? The base program?
If you're talking about the base program, it runs
5 reps x 65% of TM
5 reps x 75% of TM
5 reps x 85% of TM
Three sets total.
After that, you choose the work you want to do or follow one of the ten thousand templates. For example, you might use First-Set-Last and Joker Sets. It depends on your goals and what you need to achieve those goals. I don't recall a template in which I have seen 9 sets of the primary exercise structured the way you presented it, but I haven't seen everything Jim has put out on the internet.
