Default New Program - comments please

So am going to start a new cycle next week, its based off the texas method, with some exercise changes based on my equip limitations (no bench or GHD). I am not really training for any thing specifically just decent GPP and Power/Strength to boot. I have notice bulk more power for grappling since doing heavy Cleans.

Comments are appreciated

Press 5X5
Power Clean 5X3

Tuesday
Met-Con

Wednesday
Front Squat 3X3
Heavy Swings 3x5 (2x32kg)
Weighted Chin ups 5x5

Thursday
Met-Con

Friday

Weighted Ring Dips 5x5
Dead Lift 1X5

Saturday
Snatch

All things snatch related

I assume "low intensity" means more 50-60% 1RM effort with explosiveness in mind? Either way....eat alot!!!

What's the low volume low intensity day all about? Basically an easy day?
