Let's talk about TM

As we all know, the most popular template of Texas method that circulates the internet is the following
>Volume day
Squat 5x5 @90%
Bench 5x5 @90%
Deadlift 1x5 @ no mentioned percentage, "don't worry squats should carry it" according to PP ed.3
>Recovery day
Squat 2x5 @80%
OHP 3x5 @90%
>Intensity day
Squat, bench 5rm
Power clean 5x3
I'd like a template without power cleans. The book has templates for strongmen, WL and other stuff, nothing for recreational lifting. The closest I found was from Izzy's powerlifting to win where he recommends substituting PCs for deficit deadlifts and to reduce squat volume on Monday. The program should look like this:
>Volume day
Squat 3x5 @90%
Bench 5x5 @90%
Deficit Deadlift 3x5 @70% (lower % because deficit and fatigue)
>Recovery day
Squat 2x5 @80%
OHP 3x5 @90%
>Intensity day
Squat, bench, deadlift 5rm
Assuming we agree that the above is an acceptable TM template (if you disagree you better have a higher Wilks than Izzy), is there anything wrong with the following template? Are the changes
Change 1: FB 3x -> UL 6x (UL 4x is acceptable by the book)
Change 2: VV/II -> IV/IV (acceptable by the book iirc)
Change 3: a bit more pressing volume
Resulting template:
Squat 5rm
Deficit Deadlift 3x5 @70%
Bench 5rm
OHP 3x5 @90%
Squat 2x5 @80%
Back extensions
Incline CGBP 2x5 @70%
Deadlift 5rm
Squat 3x5 @90%
OHP 5rm
Bench 3x5 @90%

General vegan thread, mainly for discussion of health as this is a fitness board, although if anyone's interested we can always discuss ethics and the environment.

So here's my main proposition, give me an explanation as to why a meat eater diet is superior to a vegan one for fitness, or vice versa.

Here's a link to our vegan-fit discord: https://discord.gg/WA2P32d

It's been a minute since we've had a good skin health thread. share advice, stories, popping videos, etc. all about skin.

>biggest organ of your body
>first thing women see
>can make a 2/10 face a 9/10 face with proper care
>better skin = better confidence
>satisfying to pop pimples and zits.

How is your skin /fit/? Hope you've been washing your face after sweating out all that grease.
