Yeah, I have. The best way that I see it fit is to do a layout like this:

-Find 15, 10, and 5 rep maxes. For 5 RM's, use only 5x5 exercises.
-SD (1 week)
-HST 15's block (2 weeks)
-HST 10's block (2 weeks)
-5x5 loading (4 weeks)
-5x5 deload (1 week)
-5x5 intensity (2 weeks)
-Deload (3x3)

This way is much better. There may be some zig zagging in weight from your transition from the 10's RM day to your 5x5 loading. That's ok since the volume gets kicked up a few notches.
