This is very solid for a beginner, now here is just a suggestion. Since you are doing 3 sets of 5-10 lets look at the rep ranges. In theory it is always said that 1-5 range (maximal strength) 6-12 (power/size) 15+ (muscle endurance), that is true to a point, however as you grow you will find that a combination of these ranges will inspire growth (size and strength wise). My suggestion would be to look at your big three (bench, squat, dead) work in the 1-5 range, and use your auxiliary lifts in the 6-12 and 15+ range as this will inspire growth and tolerance to longer work periods. Overall you headed in the right direction my friend! Keep it up
