Default Critique my routine

Hi MaB

I have noticed a slow, yet controlled converting into powerlifting / Powerbuilding and would like some feedback on my routine.

I have not choosen a Powerlifting template to follow because I enjoy Legs/Push/Pull workouts.

Legs:

Squats - 5x5
Leg Press - 4x-10
Lunges - 4x8 ea leg
Stiff Deadlifts - 4x8
Calves - 4x10.

Push:

Bench Press - 5x5 (doing a % progression template atm)
Incline DB press - 4x8
Dips or flyes - 3x8

Military press - 4x5
OR Side laterals

Jm press or some other extension exercise 5x8-10
4 sets of AB work

Pull:
Weighted pullups - 50 reps
Deadlift - 5x5
DB or Cabel Row 5x8-10
Face pulls 5x10

BB bicep curl 5x6-8

I love this split and I usually work out 5 days over a course of 10 days.
My rest period is based on how my body feels. I usually go by 3 days on and 2 days off.

BUT I have a huge problem with sore hamstrings from leg day that affects my deadlift day. This problem have gotten me thinking of moving deadlifts to leg day, but I am unsure how this will affect my progression and my split?

Any advice and critique is appreciated.

Stay strong, MaB.

50 reps of pullups is insane before deadlifts. Id do them afterward since they're so easy.

which one is easy? Deadlifts or Pullups?
Sometimes I do DL before pullups, but havent felt much of a strength difference in either one.

Anything else? How do you "split" up squats and deadlifts?
