if i remember correctly, dorian yates used to train in this manner. several "warm-up" sets, culminating in one working set. i'm not exactly sure of the cadence he performed the lifts of that working set.
how many warm-up sets are you performing before you actually do the working set? and at what cadence and rep ranges? what % of the weight of the working set?
