If dropping the weight, keep this quote in mind.


I have never written a program for anybody that has the weight stay the same while a movement is learned. You learn the movement, work up to a weight that seems reasonable for your level of expertise, and then you go up a little THE NEXT WORKOUT. There is no point in a novice remaining at any weight for more than one workout, because the same weight will no more guarantee a technique improvement than a small jump will prevent it, and if you don't go up you're not getting stronger.
A 380 back squat is more than enough to front squat 232lbs.
