As mentioned before I'm currently doing the SS novice program as Rxd and the work sets are to be 3 across, meaning if your 1st work set is 195 then the 2nd and 3rd (final) will be 195 also.

Ok, I just looked more closely at your setup. Rippetoe's setup goes more like this for example:
Squats
W R S
45 5 2
95 5 1
135 3 1
185 2 1
205 5 3
I think you are bumping up warmups too much Elliot. I know for almost certain that you're in better shape than I even discounting the hip and I'm doing this program in like 45 mins on average 3X per week.
Here's what mine look like for comparison:
Squats
W R S
95 5 2
135 5 1
165 3 1
185 2 1
195 5 3

Bench
W R S
95 5 2
120 5 1
155 3 1
165 2 1
175 5 3

Deads
W R S
135 5 1
165 3 1
195 2 1
215 5 3
230 5 1

Press
W R S
85 5 2
95 5 1
105 3 1
115 2 1
125 5 3

Clean
