No, when you ramp up you only perform the number of reps selected for the ramp.

For example if you ramp up to a 3RM you only perform sets of 3, even with the lighter weights.

For example let’s say that someone can lift 300lbs for one rep, a ramp to a 3RM might look like:

Bar x 5 warm-up
135lbs x 5 warm-up
155lbs x 3 warm-up

185lbs x 3
205lbs x 5
225lbs x 3
245lbs x 3
265lbs x 3
275lbs x 3
