You need to consider "training efficiency" in your plan. You've picked a lot of good exercises, but you need to whittle them down a bit to keep things to a reasonable amount of volume. If I had to choose, I'd probably pick the deadlifts, the DB (or barbell) rows, and the lat pull downs (or pull-ups if you have the means to do them). Remember, sometimes "more" is not "better". Pick a few good exercises and hit them *HARD*.
Thanks Aurik - I agree.
