    back day question

    ok so my current back day is 5 sets of heavy deadlifts (2-5 reps), 3 sets of pull ups (i can do about 10 per set atm), 3 sets of seated cable rows (8-12 reps), 4 sets of face pulls (8-15 reps), and some bicep stuff at the end. I'm progressing decently with deadlifts, but my grip strength and back in general are completely destroyed after deadlifts so I haven't progressed my pull ups in quite a while. Do deadlifts/cable rows make pull ups redundant? If not, what should I do to increase my pull ups every week?

    I would like to keep deadlifts in my routine because I want to increase my numbers for the 3 main lifts.

    Do them on a different day then. I've never seen the logic of bundling exercises for related muscle groups on the same day - crossover fatigue is always going to screw with performance. It think it comes back to the dogma that you need X days to recover after training a muscle group. Only this morning, I wrote a piece about how that is complete nonsense:
