Push Routine, Bench, OHP15698

I usually do a Push/Pull/Legs/Shoulders/Rest/Repeat split but because it is more effective for just PPL, I am switching to that starting tomorrow. Due to the fact that I will be combining the Chest/Shoulder Routine together, I was wondering if this was a decent routine because I was hoping that my shoulders would not fall behind. It is high volume but my body responds well to it.
I will be using progressive overload for my workouts.

Bench Press
OHP* I will be switching between my first exercise with bench and OHP. whichever is my first movement will be for strength that day.
Incline Press 3 sets 6-12
Side Laterals 3-4 sets 6-12
Dips 3 sets
Closed Grip Bench 4 sets
Shrug Variations 3-5 sets

I don't think this is excessive volume. I will be giving this a try tomorrow. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

rotate weight each session too, add some maxes every other week or some heavy 6-8s

I don't see any alarming areas, maybe move shrugs to pull day is all I can think of but that's my preference. What is your PULL day looking like?

Why are shrugs there at all? They're a pull movement. -3X

@hamer93 Yeah I was skeptical about shrugs on my push day but I think I'll just move it towards my pull day.
But my pull day looks like this

Pull Downs
Barbell Row
Dumbbell Rows
Face Pulls
Dumbbell Curls
Incline Curls

Depending on what day it is, usually one day I like to go for hypertrophy and another ill be usually doing strength so I would usually go for barbell rows first on strength day.

@eknight You're right, I'm moving it to m pull workout
