Just started the 9 week program and have a question about the Wed schedule lifting 90% of Tues 5rm Snatch Deadlift.

My back squat 1RM is 255 and my 5RM Snatch Deadlift was 250. So my lifts on wed are set all at 225 which is heavier than my 5 rep maxes for monday.
5Rm Squat was 215
5Rm Barbell row 175
5Rm Pushpress 185

What is the intent of the Wed workout so I can guage the intensity. Is it a slight back off or is it meant to ramp up the weight a bit because there are less sets?

Also I can not understand the deficiency in my squat I can deadlift 405 but barely ATG squat 250. My tendency when weight gets heavy is to tilt forward to better use my hamstrings and glutes so does that mean I have weak quads? Is there anything I can add or supplement to the program to try and correct the problem.
