Plyo's will have little or no effect for absolute strength exercises. Proper manipulation of training(weight,sets and reps) will reap the desired results.

Squats should be performed before deadlifts. Deadlifts take a lot out of your back which is needed to keep proper form on your squat. If you don't keep your form on your squats, it could be a...
Try Zercher Squats. They help strengthen the lower back more than back squats and might be safer than clean and jerking the bar into position. You may also be able to handle a little more weight...
The JM Press is named for JM Blakely. This press is performed in the benchpress position. Imagine haning a plumb bob from the bar. You would want the plumb bob to fall directly over your upper...
Stiff legged deads??? Hams would be the primary muscle hit here, lower back would be secondary. Do reguler deads.
I'm no kinesiologist but your back is at...
For your lower back you could perform:
Stiff legged deadlifts
Back hyper-extentions on the roman chair
Hanging knee lifts
Any crunch machine
You might want to be around 35 to 40 degrees.

This is the web-site to goto for their training methods:
Pulling your shoulder blades together not only gives you a solid foundation for your benchpress but also will shorten the ROM by around 4"-6". This will also help you put up more weight.

Latman, this looks strangely like the Westside style of training. You should look more closely on how they train. You are using some of the main principals but they're not in order. The original...
For single rep strength you must perform sets of 1,2,or 3 reps. This along with other factors will give you better strength.

Click on "ARTICLES" at the top of the page in the silver bar,

Chris Mason, are you a bodybuilder or powerlifter?
If your a powerlifter, what are the 2 key components you need to be succesful? I know your not an advocate of Westside systems, so what are you...
That's nice to sit at your computer and hypothesize, but using these methods just don't work for absolute strength. This training method is called Progressive Overload. Once you have become an...
