Default I just want to OHP, chin up and deadlifts; lack of variety and shoulder issues?

Longtime lurker here, my favourite lifts are those mentioned in the title and therefore was considering running a routine something akin to 5/3/1 in order to get as strong as possible on those, accessories would just be variants of them.

Would the lack of variety, no rowing/benching, leave me susceptible to a quasimodo-esque posture or potential shoulder issues?

If so, what would be the minimal amount of additional extras I could add to mitigate this?

Thanks

It's a lack of everything variety and a fundamentally stupid program.

I just want big shoulders, back and a nice butt.

Personally, I'd avoid this sort of minimalist approach in the first place. Call it a combination of boredom, muscular imbalances, and joints being grinded down in a certain groove with no exercise variety. If you had to do it though...

- Add some kind of row which should cover mid-upper back and rear delts.. maybe.

- A bit of extra quad work is probably a good idea, even if it's just a bit of leg press or split squats. These also contribute to butt/glute volume.

- A little bit of chest pressing probably wouldn't hurt either. It doesn't have to be much, a few sets a week or whatever.

- This is certainly getting away from the minimalist approach, but for big shoulders, the combination of OHP + lateral raise usually works better than either one alone.

Advice on how would I structure an OHP, chin up and deadlift specialisation routine and whether what I suggested would lead me to injury - to which the latter it would from the answers I've been given.

Ok, thread is closed. You do NOT want help or information. You want to be told what you've already decided to do is ok. So go do it and stop wasting space and energy here. there are LOTS of forums that will tell you what you clearly want to hear.

THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.
