Programming Advice Please

Hi All,
My olympic lifting coach decided we would run the Russian Squat Routine, link for details is WFS.

A note on this: I realize that an LP would maybe work more effectively for me, as my max is only 315lbs for back squat, but I'm being a sport here and following his programming. And if nothing else, this kind of volume should build my tolerance for standing up out of a clean with some weight.

Here's an idea of what I've been doing up until he instituted the program:

Tue, Thurs, Sun: olympic lifting days with varying intensity with both lifts, accessory lifts and block work.

Mon, Wed, Fri: 5/3/1 with lots of back work for the accessories

Now that I'm squatting heavy 3 days a week, I know to drop dead lifts and squats from my 5/3/1.

Am I expecting too much from myself to keep up 5/3/1 for press and bench? With that in mind, can I keep up dumbbell rows and lat pull downs?

I'd like to keep up some work for shoulders, chest, and back for the next six weeks, but I don't want to overdo it. Any advice is appreciated.
