I agree with Facz and have squatted multiple times a week in the past (up to 6 times a week) both front and back, with good results. The back squats were all in the 500-550 range and the fronts were in the low 400s so it can be done. I squat high bar and close stance so that may have something to do with it. Jay Nera squats three times a week in the 600-700 range. Ed Coan and Kirk Karwoski squatted once a week, so theres plenty of ways to do it, I think it comes down to personal preference.

I will throw this out there. Everyday except your squat and dl days, work up to 60% of your max for a triple. Once that gets easy, move it to 70%. Your body will acclimate. Its an easy way to see a bump in your squat numbers without changing the core programming.
