New back routine.
I just changed my back routine so that I can add a little more mass to it, what do you guys think of it? Am I going anywhere with it or do I need to change something?
Start with max pull ups (usually 42)
then do weighted pull ups for 4 sets of 8-10 reps
then do 4 sets of cable pull downs 8-10 reps
4 sets of deadlifts 8-10 reps
4 sets of bent over rows 8-10 reps
and finally 3 sets of cable rows 8-10 reps
I've been doing this for the past 2 weeks, is it worth it or should I change something?

That's a lot of over head pulling movements
IMO...3's too many.
Obviously you're strong on chins and pull downs...so get in a good warm-up and go all out...Don't banter about with the bodyweight chins... Also...decide which is more effective for your back... weighted-chins or cable pull downs?
I'd go with weighted chins.... alternate between bent rows and low-cable rows between workouts:
Your routine would look like
Warm-up: 1 set bodyweight chins
Weighted chins: 4 sets
Deadlift: 4 sets
Bent-over/low-cable row: 3-4 sets

yeah it is!.. if you concentrate on intensity and maybe incorporating some drop sets

definitely enough if you go all out

Well I'm doing as much weight as I can, I cant go heavier than this already, the thing is if I dont do more sets I feel like I dont do a good workout!

Try goin heavy on deads (4-6 reps max), then throw in some pull ups and bent over rows. Theres nothing else really needed for a thick and wide back if you hit those 3 with max intensity
