    So I worked my way up to low 300s on squats, but after reviewing a video, came to the conclusion that I need to drop the weight a bit to fix my form because I wasnt getting depth. Would this be considered a back off and require me to start incorporating 2 x 5 at 80% on Wednesdays and only add lbs on Mon and Fri? Also, should I start doing back-off sets for my main working days at the same time or do I change one variable at a time?

    I would correct an work back up with standard LP. (No back of day)

    Do 3x5 @ 80% not 2x5. If you do 2x5, you're changing multiple variables. Fix your form, keep doing the program and when it's necessary add your light day. Then, when it's necessary, do the backoff sets.

    Thank you very much Coach Nick! That clears it up a lot. Ill keep working my way back up 5 lbs at a time and when I get stuck again and then for 2 consecutive workouts ill drop to 3 x 5 for 80%.
