There's nothing wrong with doing 25 rep pressing, although higher reps are generally more conducive to isolation type exercises simply due to fatigue and coordination issues.

However, by strictly training at 10 and 25 reps, you are ignoring a vast area of training. There is much strength to be gained and much hypertrophy to be had in the 1 to 9 rep range.

And as Danny B mentioned, training at 25 reps prior to the 10 reps will lead to fatigue which effects the quality of your 10 rep sets.

If you want to still keep a similar framework, I would set it up like this:

1. 3 to 5 reps/2 min rest/ 3 sets for big compound exercises
2. 10 reps/1 min rest/ 3 sets for all exercises for the fast twitch muscle fibers.
3. 25 reps/30 sec rest/2 sets for all exercises for the slow twitch muscle,
