12 Weeks of SS

I've been CFing for 5 months and have seen wonderful gains in met con and strength. However, I've been treading on the non-technical side of CF, sticking mainly to BW WODs and subbing non technical exercises where necessary. I've done quite a few Cindy's and Murph's, but never an Elizabeth or Diane as Rx'ed.

One of my goals is to have the necessary strength and technique to perform every WOD as Rx'ed, with high aspirations for Fran, Diane, Elizabeth, Linda, and the CFT. With these goals in mind, a Starting Strength cycle seems like the perfect way to get myself on the right track. I have little to no barbell experience (except the bench press) and I wanted a program that would help me increase my overall weightlifting strength in addition to developing sound technique that would guard against injury during high rep powerlifting WOD's.

My current stats:
25 YO Male
6'5" 205

Squat 5RM: 165
Bench 5RM: 205
Deadlift 5RM: 175
Press 5RM: 110
Power Clean 5RM: 115

I'm obviously unbalanced mostly due to very underdeveloped hamstring and hip flexibility from never squatting in my life prior to CF (and playing golf in college). Since my strength and technique are currently lacking in the squat, dead, and clean, I'll be starting light and hope to make steady gains over the course of the 12 week program. I'm also expecting the bench to plateau before the leg/back lifts, in which case I'll reset.
I also plan on eating about 4000 cals per day, including a gallon of whole milk/day.

My first day:

5-10 min warm up
joint mobility, hip/hamstring stretches, kip swings, rower

Squat
Warm up
45x5x2
95x3x2
115x2x1

Bench

95x3x1
Work sets
155x5x3

Assistance

200 sit ups (will probably back off the abs a bit next time)
