Default Training while Injured

Due to a hip injury, I need to take about a month off from all squatting & pulling movements. Rather than be lazy and sit around bored for a month, I decided it'd be a great time to work on upper body strength. Here's what I currently have in mind:

A.
Bench Press 2x5, 1x5+
Bent-over Row 2x5, 1x5+

B.
Press 2x5, 1x5+
Weighted Pullup 2x5, 1x5+


3 days / week, alternating between A & B. Attack it linear progression style by adding ~5 lbs to each lift, each workout. Will also add in some assistance work in the form of dips, bodyweight pullups, and core work.

Goal is to get stronger and add some mass as well since I'd like to move up from 77 to 85kg.

Thoughts, critiques, opinions?
