Then again, with such low volume it probably won't matter. Will test out flipping around accessory movements the first couple of sessions and see what feels best.
get away from thinking too much about the programming at this point. try not to do stuff that "seems like" a good idea to you, or in other words, use logic that isn't tested by lots of experience in the weightroom. not that swapping one movement from one day to another is particularly egregious, but programs are usually written a certain way by much more experienced people for a reason. the bolded portion is another good example; it might seem like sound logic to you right now, but in reality, any 5x5 or LP (linear progression) done as a beginner is going to involve lots of burning out and resetting of weights after a good long while of awesome noob gains regardless of when you do your rows. it has more to do with the overall levels of volume, intensity, and your efforts to facilitate recovery (sleep, food, etc) than doing rows after deadlifts. like i said, its not like you're doing anything that will kill your progress from the start... just trust in the methods, it may save yourself some grief down the road
a good example itt is charly - he pays someone else to write his programming for him and doesn't think about it at all, and he's the strongest one here. your brain can be a dangerous tool if used incorrectly.
