Warming up slowly with light weight, as Susan is doing here, is important when lifting a one rep max. Not only does it keep you from hurting yourself by slowly warming up your body, it also trains your brain to be comfortable with movements at light loads, so that mentally you are confident and don't think twice later about a heavier attempt. It’s amazing how often our brains can get in the way of what our body is capable of doing!
