    So include a light squat day even if the squat is still progressing on NLP and only the bench has reached the end of NLP?

    If the squat is still progressing every workout, then why mess with it? Complexity is a tool only to be applied when it's needed, on a lift by lift basis.

    Ok so your squat you are able to add weight every workout? If so then you don't need the light day. As for your bench press have you tryed micro plates? I don't see why you couldn't bench press with this set up bellow.
    Monday
    Bench 5x5 advanced novice/ early intermediate last set needs to be very hard just like when you was doing 3x5
    Squat 3x5 new pr novice
    Cleans 5x3

    Wednesday
    Overhead press 3x5
    Squat 3x5 new pr novice
    Chins 3x failure


    Friday
    Bench press 1x5 new pr advanced novice/ early intermediate
    Squat 3x5 new pr novice
    Deadlift 1x5 new pr

    Remember, what is a novice? The ablity to recover workout to workout. If you can do this you don't need a light day. You state your bench is not progessing. This is a set up for advance novice bencher who recovers in 75 hours to at most 96. Intermediate is around 96 to 120 hours. The longer the recovery the less heavy you can go. That is the only reason why people have light days.

    Yeah Griffin727's comment was just an example. Add the light squat day as needed for the squat.
