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)
Pull-ups help with pull-ups (..and are a great "strength" tool). If your goal is to develop musculature in your back, you need to understand that pull-ups alone will not do that.

What do I think about that back workout? Change it.....completely!

...and stop pulling behind your head.
