So rather than 100kg x 3 x 5 on session 1
102.5 x 3 x 5 on session 2
105 x 3 x 5 on session 3, I will do

60 x 1 x 5, 80 x 1 x 5, 100 x 3 x 5 session 1 (I would need warm up sets anyway)
60, 70, 80, 90, 102.5 x 5 session 2
62.5 x 1 x 5, 82.5 x 1 x 5, 102 x 3 x 5 session 3
62.5, 72.5, 82.5,92.5, 105 x 5 session 4

I can do 120kg x 5 with grave difficulty so I think the above would help. Everything else on Starting Strength is great.
Does it go against Rippetoe? Not really. I don't think Rippetoe would argue with any reasonable form of progression of squats.

You're squatting 3 days per week, correct?
