Also, if I have 2 pressing movements in a training day I like to split them to allow the triceps to recover. This really doesn't come into play in your routine.

In some cases I will power the Olympic variation after squats and deadlifts. I do this often myself, especially if my lower back is feeling sub-par.
Makes sense and thanks again...just don't want set myself up for epic failure!
