lockouts?

im doing a kind of westside style routine and the other week i decided to get used to heavier weights in my squat and strengthen tendons, connective tissue etc, i set the bar to around level with my elbow and got under and squated 1-3 reps working up to my 1rm, should i do the same this week and try to go heavier or set the bar a bit lower?

    I would set the bar a bit lower. Increasing the range of motion in a effect will alter the stress factor on the body of the lift and will allow you to continue making gains.
