Honestly, even 92.5kg felt very heavy today and I barely made the 8 reps As for the 122.5kg, don't think a 4th rep would have been possible if I had a gun to my head. Will be interesting to see if I can recover and make 5 reps on Tuesday.
Something to consider; when you feel gains are drying up sometimes what is needed to nudge it going again is a slight reduction in weight on the second heavy day. So your Heavy/Light/Heavy schedule:

Day 1: Squats - 120kg x
Day 2: Squats - 90kg x
Day 3: Squats - 120kg x

Would turn into a Medium/Light/Heavy schedule:

Day 1: Squats - 110kg x
Day 2: Squats - 90kg x
Day 3: Squats - 120kg x

With Day 3, of next week being when you would see improvement. Day 1 & 2 are held constant.
