i really do mean 8 sets of 3 reps. i did some smolov stuff and i thought it was cool to do lots of sets with low reps.

Just a thought. When you're starting out lots of reps is a good thing, but you need a little intensity too. !
for intensity i was planning on doing those last sets to just before failure like in 5/3/1, i think i forgot to mention that. and yeah, i love heavy singles. you think it's really important, huh?

strict overhead press is weak since i've never really tried very hard at it.

yeah, i'm not sure if i really want to do the extensions and curls all the time.
