Back routine- BB rows AND T Bar rows?

Does the following routine look ok for back:

BB Rows
T Bar Rows (with BB)
Deadlifts
Lat pulldown (very light due to exertion headache with this exercise, until i can do chins again).

My lats have been lagging slightly, and decided to add BB rows along with T Bar rows, but wasnt sure if both rows would be too much. I could possibly exchange BB rows for seated cable rows, just wanted to hear a few opinions as I'm training back tomorrow.

Cheers folks.

p.s reason i have lat pulldowns last is in case it gives me the headache at least i will have completed most of routine first.

    Out of curiosity how many sets do you do in total?

    Volume dependant, I do 2 sets of rows, together with DLs and LPDs and get on fine with that

    At the moment 3 x 10 for each. In about the 3rd week at this rep range after changing from 4x8.

    So as it is now, 9 sets in total, so would be 12 sets if i go with what i'm considering, being including BB rows as well.

    Does it sound too much?

    He says in his first post he can't do chins..

    I'd only do one of the rowing movements..be it T bar or B bell or even D bell rows..your doing 9 sets in total so do 4 sets of rows and 4 sets of Deads..that's 8 of your 9 taken care of..then go into your pulldowns..and do anything from a set to 3 0r 4 depending on your bonce.

    My personal back routine is:

    T-Bar Rows
    DB Rows
    Pulldowns
    Supine pull ups (rack chins) or cable rows

    I'd agree with that...

    Deads
    BB row
    LPD

    would be good at given rep ranges
