Current Routine:

Zercher Squat (85) 2 sets of 15 to 20

Press 5/3/1

Lat Pulldowns 5/3/1 (in place of pull ups because current weight class for both the lifting and my actual weight)

Face pulls (4) 2 sets of 20

shrugs (135) 2 sets of 20

Friday

Deadlift (135) 2 sets of 15 to 20

B Press 5/3/1

Penally 5/3/1

DB Press 4 sets of 20

I am obsessing on making sure I am balancing and probably a little bit obsessive on the whole having a push for each pull exercise. I've got a nice grove on Tuesday and Fridays. I'm not thrilled or convinced on my Monday's and Thursdays. Though Squats are taxing in of themselves, once I walk away I am left with a feeling I should do more (not in the sense of squat though). Tuesdays and Fridays I have a nice feel like i've done a lot tough not too terribly strenuous.
