If he is using the Russian Squat program as a guide its 80%. Your heavy day starts at 6x3 and builds to 6x6. Then you go 85% and higher for 5x5, 4x4,etc. My Olympic lifting coach used it to peak leg strength for meets. You squatted twice a week instead of three. The light day stays at 80% 6x2. It works well when done like that.
