I think you're going to have to run it to see how it works combining that 5x5 progression w a heavy double fs. I would suggest though that Wednesday is not exactly like Monday - either do a little less weight or volume (or both) on the lifts than you did on Monday.

Another consideration is that the only pulls you're doing are in combination with snatches and cleans and at pretty light weights. You may want to drop the pulls from that complex and do them heavier at the end of those workouts instead.

Otherwise I think the basic layout is pretty good.
