Default Beginner Cycle Selection Advice, Please

Hey everyone,

I'm formerly a powerlifter/strongman transitioning into weightlifting. I've been following some beginner templates for a few months, and have moved on to following the 5 week front squat cycle. Afterwards, I was going to go into the 12-week basics cycle so that my programming focuses more on positioning and technique work instead of power. Is this my best possible choice?

Additionally, if I'm a hip and back dominant lifter, should I sub out the weighted back extensions for a front squat or overhead squat?

For reference:
Snatch: 180
CNJ: 255
Strict press: 200
Squat: 450
Deadlift 590

Any suggestions are appreciated.
