As far as I know in general these squats are still challenging for them, in other words, the hypothetical lifter described above could not backsquat say 130kg for a double or triple at the start of the cycle. Strength and skill are developed in parallel, at least that's how I understand it. There is some variation though which is based on coaching experience, for example if the lifter were able to do the 117kg triple, the squat weights would likely be increased so to not understimulate said lifter. However in this case the focus on the cycle would be better technique to display the already developed strength in the lifts.
