    depends on the particular exercise, if im going for a PR such as my deads ill do light sets for warmup working up to a 1-2 rep set. otherwise hard from the start with weight heavy but light enough for a good hypertrophy routine 8-10 reps

    work up to a couple work sets. no point in blowing your load on the warmup sets.

    No more than 2-3 sets for warmup, then jump into the meat of the routine.
