Too Many Front Squats or loaded squats in general?

I was wondering what some members thought about doing "way too many front squats"? After wods here and there I do 3 or 4 sets of Front squats for strength building and cleaning techniques. I find myself front squatting 4 or even 5 days a week. Is this way too much? and if so, what are some other "non-barbell" exercises that I could do to develop more cleaning strength and technique? Thanks In advance for any insight!! Hooyah!!

Non-BB exercises? Pull strength whatever be it pullups, inverted pullups or rope climbs.

Always hear reverse-hypers be touted as one of the best exercises to boost deadlift, and squat.
