Finally Ready to Go

I’ve been deadlifting about 60% for 3x5 for the past 2 weeks, absolutely no sciatic pain and think I’m ready to get back to the 5/3/1 cycle I had started but I added some changes. Also some physique changes, although I wanna be strong, I would prefer not to have more fat than muscle. So right now I’m trying to pack on muscle strictly. Here’s the new workout.
*** pull up tree- 5 wide, 5 mid, 5 close grip bicep pull ups
*** push up tree- don’t want to explain but it’s incredible for triceps
