How was I supposed to know you were or still are squatting 2x/week? Your original posts never said that.

I used my (perhaps lacking) powers of deduction to figure that you were following 5/3/1 as most do: Squat day, bench day, deadlift, press in some form or order with the assistance template of your choosing.

I still like your plan as laid out and think that you'll likely to really well and enjoy yourself and will likely notice that your legs will get plenty of work considering the rest of your training. The good thing about 5/3/1, which I can't really stand for myself, is that you can choose whether you want to go for the AMRAP or stop at the prescribed reps. If you have some tough classes or are getting a little beat up towards the 1s week, you can AREG it and just hit the base reps.

You might stay a little fresher switching it along the lines of Wendler's powerlifting schedule, basically making it 3/5/1, and only hit the 5s, not maxing your reps. I really don't know though. Just food for thought.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
