Re: Back to linear progression with Back Squat ?

His squat / DL difference is about the same. Squatting more has helped, but the gain's are not as fast as he wishes...
As soon as i have 1.5 years more of a timeline to achieve my strength goals, i'm happy with my deadlift now. If i keep progressing, i can add more than 120 lbs and that would satisfy me. But my squat really sucks and that's why i'm worried about it.

My other thought of being truer to 5/3/1 would be to do 5/3/1 HBBS followed by first set last to get in some extra volume.
I'm doing 5/3/1 Front Squats just after 5/3/1 Deadlifts. Adding first set last after HBBS is also a good idea and i think i will try that. Thanks for the replies.
