I always do deadlifts first, followed by Pendlay rows. The conventional wisdom has always been to do the exercises that involve the most muscle groups first. For me, deadlifts are a bitch. If I were to not perform them first, I am sure my form and/or strength on them would suffer. Performing deadlifts first doesn't seem to affect my strength on Pendlays.It may even help, because deadlifting heavy first makes the rest of my exercises seem easier.
