Just once a week after the main lifts should be good enough - doesn't matter what you do exactly, whether its a few sets of 3 or 5 at a moderately heavy weight or you work up to a heavy double/triple... as long as your progressing.

For the sake of knowledge, Pendlay posted a bit of info on how his guys typically train ( How we train. - Pendlay Forum ). Something you won't be able to implement right away lol, but you can definitely pull some ideas from it for future reference.

Keep up the good work!

PS - nice avatar! Has been my wallpaper for awhile now haha
lol! cool coincident!

about the back squats, i actually planned to alternate front and back squats every other time, so I was thinking along similar lines. I was just going to increase the weight 5lbs per session until i get to higher intensities that require cycling. sound good?

thanks again pull!!
