Deadlift 531
Overhead Press Why not just follow 5/3/1 here
Power Shrugs 3x8 Can be done but I see no point


Bench 531
Squat (I dont see a purpose in back squatting twice a week, make these front squats instead and it would make more sense to me.
Dips 5x5
kroc rows


What do you guys think about this aproach?

Everything else looks fine.
