I intend those RMs to be the heaviest you can do that day fairly correctly and without failed reps.

Yes you have to get stronger, but getting stronger and improving technically are not mutually exclusive. Push the basic strength work as hard as you can, e.g. squats, pressing, pulling exercises, and use a more "technical max" with the classic lifts and variants to ensure that your progress is coming from actually getting better rather than just doing the lift shittier.
