You could either use a legs, push, pull split like you have setup or jump to a fullbody.

Only thing I would recommend is using deadlifts first on Friday while your back is fresh.

Unless you have terrible front delts that need beefing and huge rear delts (which i highly doubt), i would suggest dropping one of the seated presses for band pullaparts or face pulls. You need to hit the rear delts. The front delts already get a lot of work from benching,
