Light Squat or DB Squat 3x10?

I am in my 60s and changing up my routine. I really have one day I need advice. on Friday I want to add some kind of light squatting movement before the Trap Bar Deadlifts. Would you suggest: Light Squat 3x3 FSL (from Tuesday) or DB Squat 3x10?

Monday
Bench 3x5 Pros/FSL 2x5-8

DB Press 3x10

Pulldowns 5x10

Face Pulls 5x10/Triceps Extensions 3x10 - Triceps Press Downs 2x10

Tuesday

Squat 3x5 Pros/FSL 2x5-8

Stiff-legged dead lift 3x6-8
Ab Work 3x15

Prowler Walks

Thursday
Overhead Press 3x5 Pros/FSL 2x5-8

DB Bench 3x10

DB Rows 5x10

Band Pull-Apart 5x10/Bicep Curl 3x10 – Hammer Curl 2x10

Friday

Light Squat 3x3 FSL (from Tuesday) or DB Squat 3x10

Trap Bar Deadlift 3x5 Pros/FSL 2x5-8
Ab work 3x15

Prowler Walks

Personally, I would do DB squats of 3x10 rather than more barbell squats.

Why do you feel the need to even add an extra squat day? Do you not get enough leg work in with the squat day and 2 prowler walk days?

Use the DB squat.
