Most guys when they tell you to squat multiple times a week, they are not talking about near death experiences.....I AM!

I prefer novices and intermediates do a lot of AMAP sets, only to the point where their form stays good - and progressing when they can based on current set performance.
My squat went from Bar to 365 for a triple in 18 months when I was 18. I let progression naturally do it's work instead of limiting it.
So hitting it hard on squat day along with some AMAP sets for assistance, then AMAP squatting as assistance on deadlift day sound like a plan of attack guys?
