Dynamic Day & Oly Lifting

Is it possible to have a dynamic effort day for squats while training the olympic lifts?
I realize that most of the articles on dynamic squats focus on using a box squat technique which may not be all that great for Oly lifts.

I was contemplating using them as a type of unloading day from my max effort squats performed earlier in the week (possibly adding in some extra resistance in the form of bands). Sets would be 8-10 with 2 reps of between 55%-70% of max.

Anyway, just asking as I am new to the olympic lifts, but am finding my knees to be sore squating twice weekly on top of practicing the lifts.
Thanks for any advice,

If your knees are giving you trouble, maybe you can just practice with the bar, or very light weights for now.
