Yes, other exercises are important, but weighted pull-ups made the most difference for me. I do 2 weighted pull-ups, 2 weighted chin-ups, followed by body weight pull-ups, body weight chin-ups. I cannot do 25, I end up doing 10-12 as I can barely move my arms at the end. What do you think of this back workout? What would change?

3 sets DL
3 sets pull-ups (as mentioned above)
3 sets chin-ups
3 sets of one of the following rows/cable/bench behind head pull (works mid of back)
