It seems I am fresher for the money set this way.
That's a solid approach. I prefer rep work after my heaviest set of the day, as it tends to feel lighter and more manageable.

As far as other changes, I would consider bumping the one arm rows to higher reps. My personal opinion is that low rep rows can be sloppy, and somewhat ineffective. One set of 3-5 reps, and perhaps a couple at 5 reps plus.
