Default Critique my PHAT-inspired Split!

Goals:
1.) 4-5 days per week
2.) Non-excel based progression scheme for the major lifts - ie not 5/3/1
3.) Low rep sets for the big 3 (Deadlift, Bench, Squat)
4.) Moderate/Higher rep accessory work
5.) Weak point focus

Muscle Size: shoulders; traps; upper back (always lol); arms
Muscle Strength: hip drive on squat/dead; off-chest sticking point on bench (ie delts)

I've been looking at the PHAT methodology. I think my CNS and body needs a break from the high intensity/load lifting for relatively high volume.

I realize what happens is I get all wrapped up in excel spreadsheets in charts when I need to just focus on the main lifts with adequate volume.
For example, instead of Xlbs at X% for X reps, I'd rather have a layout telling me, "When you hit X sets of X reps with X weight, increase the load"
