Yea, sorry I made it confusing. I didn't want to post everything because it was alot to type, it isn't all that important, and my friend sells programs like this to people so I don't want to give all the info out.

But I was definitely doing more than just 1 set. 5-7 sets at the beginning of the week and about 3 sets towards the end of the week. Plus at the lower percentages, less rest was used. So if its 70%, it would be only 30 secs rest, if its 80% it would be only 60 secs rest.

So I had around 15 work sets on squat, 20 work sets on bench, and 10-15 work sets on deadlift a week plus the military press work and back work I would throw in some days.

EDIT:
The deadlift set up was based on this table.
