    ^--Reason?

    Whats the set/rep schedule?
    Some shrugs on pull day and calf raises on leg day would be good imo.

    The set/reps change from week to week. Its pyramid lifting. Weight and reps vary from week to week.

    No need to "pyramid"- most justification for that is bunk and does not work well for the average/unassisted lifter.

    Just straight 5x5 is fine. Id also Squat earlier in the week.
