Surely you can't workout your entire body through compound lifts alone?! I already think that my calves, abs, shoulders, traps (I think these are the muscles between your shoulder and you neck??) are being left out compared to other areas like my back and thighs.

All of them are well worked if you're doing Clean & Jerks. (Not sure if it's in your routine though, sorry.)

Bent over rows done with a barbell will work both sides of the back, at the same time my friend. Sorry I didn't specify.
yeah, the vertical pulling motion uses more strength than being on a bench or bent over.

yeah, I know bent over rows work both halves. The other rows, where you're kneeling on a bench, don't.

either way, I usually do pull/chin - ups and lat pulldowns mainly.

If by more strength you mean working different muscles. Then yes.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

And if these do work so well... please feel free to post up a picture of how incredibly wide your lats are.

lol, I wasn't aware this was a competition now. My reasoning behind those two exercises was the motion involved, which has proven to be the most beneficial for me. It's not like I do nothing else.

hell no, I don't bodybuild. I actually only did bodyweight for about 3 months before. I lift a couple times a week now along with plyos. The lifting has just helped with power but I have to make sure not to add on too much mass.

Plyos are a beautiful thing. At least you're not an idiot who thinks working out will instantly get you huge.
