I don't think it would be too much. You've got to consider that if you're like most folks, your chins won't amount to piddly poo at first. I am currently doing 5 sets to failure, and it looks like this: 1x1 1x1 1x1 1xpartial 1xpartial. I also suggested that you MAY want to drop shrugs for now. That will get you down to 12 working sets of back.
I don't mean to jack around your program. That wasn't my point. It was all about efficiency and streamlining. No sense doing two isolation exercises when one compound exercise will do. Chins would represent a vertical pull, just like the shrugs. Plus the biceps would get some work. I don't think you would be curling your body weight for 3x12. If you can, then I want to meet you.
Just my thoughts. I have no arguement with what you wrote. I do wish you well.
