   I don't max out everyday. I generally work up to a triple or single with something that I don't have to get fired up for. As soon as I think I am going to grind a rep, I shut it down. I only low bar squat once a week. The rest of the week I alternate from a front squat, High bar squat, pause high bar and safety bar squat. I do have to wear knee protection as my knees ache from time to time.
  My low bar This week I did a very easy 250 kg for a triple (belt & wraps). I train mostly in my home gym and squat in the mornings. After work in the evenings I do the rest of my workout of whatever is scheduled for that day. I train at a local crossfit place from time to time when I go for new maxes.
 It's something I wanted to try and I enjoy doing it. My legs grew dramatically and I am stronger.How much longer I will continue remains to be seen.

I don't squat everyday, but now that I'm doing full-body workouts with my son 3 days a week, I'm doing some form of squat 4 times a week now. 

I'll squat with him one day (lighter weight/higher reps), do the power squat machine another day with him (lighter weight/higher reps).  Then for my normal 3 day split I'll squat heavy one day, at least for me, along with front squats or leg press.  Then on another day I do the Power Squat Machine for heavy sets.

On the other day with my son I do deadlifts for lighter weight/higher reps, and then on the 3rd day of my split, I hit deadlifts heavy.  I work some part of legs every day I go to the gym.

I've seen good progress on squats in the last few months, so I think the alternating heavy days and light days agrees with me, along with the increased frequency.

I did 4 weeks of Swedish frequency training.  Same routine every day.  3x5 between 55-75% intensity depending on the day.  Every lift went up a lot except squats. No idea why.  I stopped because weighted pullups were making my elbows hurt like hell.  Will definitely do again.
