I agree 100%, been thinking about following a routine similar to what you described above, may start that today.

I would do something like
Getting as many reps under your belt as possible with higher weights are going to benefit you more in the long-run than the intermediate sets
3 ways to build strength:
1. Lift maximal weights
2. Lift submaximal weights for maximal reps
3. Lift submaximal weights at maximal speed
Your set at 225 is accomplishing #2, but all your other sets aren't really doing anything besides tiring you out in my opinion.
