I use to pull 2-3 sets of 1 twice a week of around 92%. If you add variation in, such as snatch grip, deficet, sumo, etc, I absolutly believe it's ok. Personally I think it's less stress than working up to a high % squat every workout. My recomendation is to stay north of 88-90%, but south of 95% of your 1RM.
