Yeah, my squat is a bit higher, but still a relatively weak figure (215).

"it may be smart to shift to 60% of your front/back"
That's funny because I have been doing 60% of my squat during this cycle. It just felt like the right amount of weight to be doing for 6x6, and I have been trying to explode up with the weight too.
Perfect! Work that rate of force development and just hammer away. Small increases from week to week will add up pretty impressively over time.
