As a general strength goal, I would stick to predominantly back squat unless you feel your quads or calves are lacking. Try to front squat 1/3 of your leg days. Find someone that can teach you good form. I'm talking an instructor for crossfit or olympic lifters. If you aren't as serious, youtube. Some great instructional videos are on there.

Final tip, if you aren't squatting with olympic lifting shoes, squat barefoot. If that's not allowed where you lift, chucks or something similar. Keep those elbows high!
Cool, thanks for the info

I typically do my squats/DL's in chucks (too cheap to buy a pair of Romaleos, haha)
