Good thread so far.
I train raw and follow a westside template.
I do lots of box squats and it does carry over very well for me. I rotate paused squats and box squats for DE. Keep in mind I sit back and squat wide. Box Squats also helped with my free squat form tremendously.
For upper body ME I usually stick between 3-5 reps. This has been a lot more effective for me over singles. I usually do a back down set a well. Lower body Is mostly singles for ME.`
De upper started working for me when I lightened the weight. Although I often Rotate RE and DE in 3 week cycles.
There's a little on my take with westside and raw training....
