The squat and deadlift timing work perfectly for me, and work, I'm keeping as is.
But please tell me if these changes I want to make work: I feel like the power clean, bench, chinup, and overhead programming are off for me. I feel like I should be rotating chinup and power clean every workout, and the midweek press day shouldn't be light. I would plan on doing all the upper body at 3x5.
I think I can get away with this still since my upper body stats are so shitty.

Am I the only one who even notices the FUD or for lack of a better word bullshit surrounding SS and doing strength training with bodybuilding in mind in general?
For starters, what about the fact that 99% of people who do SS look like shit and the only reply to that is "look at these cherrypicked individuals who don't"?
Then you reply with "hurr it's not suppoosed to make u look good muh strength base", seconds after having posted your fucking lacek or whatever the fuck he's called for the trillionth time.
Well, what about the fact that there is no data whatsoever in favor of "strength base"? The typical reply is that mass follows strength, but that in turn is a misnomer for the scientific findings that it's total volume which dictates your growth and an increase in strength is one of the consequences rather than the cause. Meaning that someone on a split, in regards to putting on size, is not worse off than someone on SS as long as he increases volume (after all it's caloric surplus which dictates significant increase in lbm anyways)
"b.but you build strength faster on SS therefore more gains" you cry. Well we already saw how that turns out every time you respond with "SS is not supposed to make you look good". For some reason it's still superior though, huh. Do you realize that noobie CNS adaptation has fuck all to do with hypertrophy?
And so we go full circle with the half truths about strength in relation to size.
SS is circular reasoning built upon a foundation of what I like to call nerdscience - the more pretentious, elitist form of broscience.
