5-Day Bodybuilding Split

You say to emphasize shoulders on one pressing day, and emphasize chest on the other day. Do you still recommend starting with an OH variation on the chest emphasis day, for sake of healthy shoulders? So maybe:

Upper 1 (chest):

A) Clean and Jerk (activation)

B) Incline
ramp to MTW and wave load

C) Flat
ramp to MTW and wave load

D) Reverse-Band Bench
wave load

E) Isolation Circuit
Rotator Cuff
Rear Delt Flyes
Face Pulls
DB Shrugs

Day 2 (shoulder emphasis):

A) Top-Half Seated MP (activation)

B) Standing OH Press
ramp to MTW and wave load

C) Steep Incline DB Press
ramping sets of 5

D) CGBP
ramp to MTW and waveload

E) Dips
ramping sets of 5

F) Circuit
Seated Side Laterals from dead stop
Standing Side Laterals
Seated Front Raises from dead stop
Standing Front Raises

Would you change anything around? This is just something I threw out, I'll be going by feel but this is roughly what I'll be doing.
