Well I am the same way. It's harder to put all my focus into perfect form on a set of multiple reps. I am focusing on form, no doubt, but I also have to concentrate on other things like...am I going to hit failure, why did my hamstring quiver, and is it going to be ok on the next rep, etc.

Thinking about singles, and how much is needed, I wonder if the question is more:

How many minimum do I need each week to practice my form as opposed to the question...what is the bare minimum I need for progression?

I fear doing only 3 max singles each week can be too little simple from a form standpoint. Merely speculation, but a good question.
