Weight Training, little details
If you had to use these exercises how many workouts per week would you use them over and which exercises would you group together.
Sorry, forgot to put those in before

To see muscle growth I'd personally split it up into days aswell in terms the muscle groups lke weigie has said but a little differently.
The way I write my programs is different day and different muscle groups with a full weeks rest in between because it gives it a full week to relax, you maty wonder why a week because all your muscles get alot of work during the week doing day to day things and this just tortures them so badly that it takes 2 days for the soreness to full deplete out of your system.
Monday - Chest and Triceps.
Tuesday - Back and Biceps
Bent Over Row
Wednesday - Legs and Lower Back
Thursday - Shoulders
This would probably be were I would throw in the Cleans and the jerks.
^ Thats just basically something snappy and I'd throw it together with some gigantic sets which is 4 different exercises back to back with 2 minute rest and complete 5 sets before doing either your plyometric work and or your isolation exercises. You will be sore, but you will be a monstrous lol.
Why would you have to use just those exercises, and what is the desired goal? (Strength / size / power etc)
They are a couple of points I would need to think about before answering that question.
At the mo day 1 is squats, bench and rows and day 2 is deads, dips and chins.

i was doing 1 heavy set of 3-5 with a lighter set of 5 but now i've switched to 3 sets of 5, it means i've lightened my weghts by 10kg but it should ensure i use weights that are appropiate and can make better strength gains consistantly while keeping my technique solid. 2-3 weeks heavy then a deload week.
I think what you're already doing sounds good for strength development. If you are adding those extra lifts for power, you could always put two of those exercise at the start of each day, E.g:
1. Hang Clean
1. Squat Jump
3b. Pull up
Or you could use the 'Contrast Method' of Starting with a strength movement (to excite the nervous system) and follow up with the explosive equivelant of that movement pattern, E.g:
1a. Deadlift (strength)
1b. Squat Jump (power)
1a. Squat (strength)
1b. Hang Clean (power)
2a. Pull Up
If you did something similar to one of the above, there probably wouldn't be much more benefit in adding a jerk. You could always replace dips for the jerk though?

This gets my vote.

But for someone who is uncoached i'm not doing too badly. P.S. yeah i know my grammer kinda sucks.
Day 1 A1 deadlift a2 hang cleans B1 bench press B2 bent row
Day 1 A1 squat A2 squat jump B1 Chins B2 Dips. Wouldn't bother with jerk personally
Im not using jerks at the moment but when i was i did notice that i was hitting the heavy bag with more power.
