just a 5x5 increasing 5lb a workout /week depending on.
A- bench squat rows + Auxiliary (triceps traps whatever feels good)
B- deadlifts, military press, pull ups + auxiliary (biceps or whatever)
not sure if it's an ideal plan but time will tell

I think you may find that squatting 2x a weak and DLing once it will be *very* hard to recover once it gets at all difficult. Or at least thats what I've found in my own personal experience. But if you are making gains and progressing week to week then there is no point in stopping a good thing.

yes as I get closer to max capacity I may need some more recovery time. Is there a good replacement for squats in one workout? That would bring the really heavy stuff ( assuming the wieghts I lift will ever get large enough to be called heavy ) down to twice a week.
cleans?
snatches ?
however there is no lifting pad so I can't just slam anything down.
suggestions?

Maybe squat thrusts with large triangular weights?

Squat thrusts with large triangular weights is your best bet but since most places don't have triangular weights anymore.... lol

You could just change one of them to a front squat and start really light to learn the form. This will get some practice for front squats and reduce the weight on one day. Or really, any other variation of a lower movement would be fine. Maybe some single leg work or lunges, split squats etc.

I wouldn't reccomend power cleans or snatches without a proper lifting pad. Shit happens.
