Default This is what I'm thinking...

Thanks for the advice IM.
Here's what I've done: dropping the sets to 3 for DLs and lat pulls, and removing the 4th set of face pulls at the end of the routine keeps it in the right set volume (for me). I will take your advice on the power of the DLs and reduce how much I DB row.

This is just a draft, though. I'm still open to suggestions.
