Steve, I will see how fatigued I feel after performing it as I've templated above, and do as you have suggested.
The good news is I am no longer doing Sleeper rows; I got the pulley outside now for proper seated row!
One last thing: Are the lat pulldowns in the right place? Or should I do them after 1 arm DB rows perhaps? I'm still not sure of the placement, as DB rows take a lot more out of me than pulldowns, which tells me they should go after...
