Default Shoulder Pains

My left shoulder has been given me problems the last couple weeks. I'm sure it's an impingement so I'm giving myself a rest from overhead work. I've been following SS, rotating between bench press, shoulder press and using LBBS the last 4 months. I've switched over to HBBS and dropped the presses completely. My question is:

Because of the less workload from not pressing I was curious as to increasing the workload with more squats, squatting 5x5 3 times a week. Is this feaseble or completely insane? I plan to increase my pulling exercises a bit more namely doing more pull-ups as they don't bother my shoulder, light sets of deadlifts (80%) and more cleans.

Healthy body sick mind...
