I just finished doing something very similar. I did a Smolov Jr. program for both my squat and bench. It looked like this:
Tuesday: Squat 6x6
Wednesday: Bench 6x6
Thursday: Squat 7x5
Friday: Bench 7x5
Saturday: Squat 8x4
Sunday: Squat & Bench 10x3, 8x4
Monday: Bench 10x3
I gained a few pounds over the three weeks of the program (roughly 5) and I have added a good amount to my squat. I went from redlighting 390 in a comp due to depth to putting up 405 breaking parallel today. I haven't maxed on bench yet.
I felt the most strain in my back. It was tiresome, but I made it through with some good gains to show for it.
