No to texas method; it was just my first week back after a christmas break, so I always go 50%, 80%, 100% in terms of the following three weeks back.
Problem I have with back squats is lack of hip flexibility and tight hamstrings, mainly due to my APT. I've fixed my weak glutes now so I get much more power through, although I've made the permanent switch to front squats due to increased quad dominance. I'm aware that I should really look at fixing the hips, but after such a bad injury I'm happy just being able to train 3x a week pain-free, especially given that I'm not really doing this to power lift or anything.
