yeah, 8*3s sounds cool.. I always like more weight. My thought at least with the squats is to try to use the same weight for all 5 sets each time... once you have a week where you achieve that you put more on the bar on Monday and keep that for as many sets as possible. I prefer organic progression to a forced progression, as you may be able to put up more than the progression scheme calls for.
