Ummm.... I hesitate to say this as I could be wrong, but I recently went through a max effort program that prescribed backoff sets, and what I realized was that it reinforced your groove when lifting.
I would hammer away at max singles, but then the backoffs were a lot more volume done with much more confidence, and more importantly, much better form at those weights.
Bottom line, you take any lift to a near max effort with good form, then backoff for reps at a lower weight, you will hit those weights easier and with better form and for increasingly higher weights, all reinforcing the groove you want to reinforce.
Keep greasing the groove, keep adding weight to the bar.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
