I wouldn't see any harm in doing other strength work like Pressing and Pulling exercises as well to keep the body balanced.
I guess I don't really have a program, but basically what I've been doing is as follows:
M - Backsquat 3x5
T - technique class, overhead press 3x5
W - Front squat 3x5
Th- technique class
F- Backsquat 3x5
In addition to the above, after the squats I will usually do very light snatches/cleans on the minute for like 20 minutes and depending on how I feel, I do some pullups/pushups/dips/ab work before bed
I am trying to get away from the heavy upperbody exercises though because my upperbody is strong relative to my lowerbody and I think it has led to some stiffness, particularly overhead
