If I'm not mistaken Joe DeFranco wrote the program.This guy is probably bigger than you,stronger than you and has trained way more people than you.What makes you think you can make his program better?
Of course it's your training and you can do whatever you want.But imo if you gonna run the program of a bigger more successful lifter don't change it.Especially if you're running it for like the first time.After 1 cycle you can probably make some changes depending on what you noticed
Also I don't like setting goals the way you did.If you get to 12% bf,build 8 pounds of muscle and deadlift 395 is it a failure?
Do the program,eat according to your goals,get stronger,get bigger or/and leaner,have fun
Hope that helps
On a side note,keep a log somewhere.Here's a great place to do so.It will help you stay consistent as well as get some advice from bigger and better lifters
