1- Power clean
3- bentover bb row
4- Back hyperextensions
5- Dumbell curls
I can only manage about three chinups now and would like to increase them to a number that you can't count on one hand.

Squats week 4
Squat - 2x6x90kg for the first time in the program these were actually pretty tough.
That's coz they're hardcore I don't even work at weights like this (not that my squat is much to write home about). Looks like the routine is going well. Keep it up man!

Also, I have been told that pullups and chins aren't that much use to powerlifting due to it working the lats in a different plane of motion to when you bench. If increasing your bench is your goal, maybe try having your second lat exercise as something like seated/cable row or t-bar row. Just a suggestion
