You can front squat every day if you want - maybe 70-75% or so for triples, 5 sets or a few more, just to build up the volume of proper squatting. Focus on extending the upper back forcefully and reduce the weight if you're losing the proper position. You can do some or all of these as pause squats, making sure to force the extension as you rise from the bottom.

Also make sure when you recover that you're keeping your head up, not tilting it down/forward.

Good mornings, 3-5 sets of 5-8 reps, 2-4 days/wk. Bent rows 3-5 sets of 8-15, 2-3 days/wk.
