    Deadlifts, Pull-ups, BB Rows & BB Curls are staples IMO

    Actually finding the connection between the squeeze of your Lats and Biceps matter most IMO. For a time I went through the motions, saw slow gains, but when you put your focus on the contraction the efficiency goes through the roof. That doesn't mean take it super slow, just make every rep have a purpose and translate it over to every movement.

    Definately agreed, I've been dropping the weight more and concentrating on squeezing and contracting an it's paying off. I stopped worrying about picking up the heaviest weight I could.

    While I agree deads are great for back, may I suggest doing them snatch grip? Because of the wider grip it places more stress on the traps, upper back and rear delts

    To add to the list - Inverted rows, chin ups for biceps, and I absolutely love 'seal rows' aka prone bench rows. They're pretty much barbell or dumbbell rows except instead of doing them bent over which allows for "cheating", you do them while lying on a bench. Can't cheat as much. They're awesome

    Is increasing your strength for your back (assuming lats specifically) and biceps the overall goal?
    Or is it secondary?
    i.e. you want stronger lats for a potentially stronger deadlift?

    That can help with choosing the right exercises.

    For general purposes
    Back:
    Rack Pulls
    Barbell Rows (Pendlay Rows would be a decent alternate)
    Weighted Pullups
    Rack Chins

    Biceps:
    Drag Curls
    Barbell Curls
    Hammer Curls
    Reverse Barbell Curls

    Focus on those lifts mentioned. The other part will be laying out your routine. There are a lot of options out there.
    For gaining strength DUP would be a good method to utilize. The rep range shouldn't be more than 6 reps per set for your main lifts. Accessory and auxiliary lifts could be higher but I'd keep them no higher than 10 reps per set.

    As stated above it's daily undulating periodization. Implementing a program that employs different rep ranges during a given week. Ensuring that the rep ranges do not greatly vary. Ie 4 reps on Monday 20 reps on Friday.
