    that's the plan

    i mean, i know that one is only supposed to dead once a week, especially in one's late 50s, but i think part of that is the assumption that you're also squatting and benching/pressing. All I'm doing, all i really can do, are deads, so what the hell.

    Can you do DL variations or barbell rows?
    Might help to do some light/heavy program to avoid burnout. Is it the covid situation that disturbs your training?

    i'm doing snatch grip deads as a warm down, and i'm finding these are helping a lot on my shoulder/arm development, sort of shockingly so, i'm like why is there contact between my biceps and my manboobs lol feels weird

    i agree on the light/heavy bit, and plan on as soon as i fail on my 3x5 heavy set to switch to something like that, so that's not too far in the future i'm sure

    covid has messed up things completely. my gym closed and went out of business, access to gyms is very very limited in nj now, and the ones near me are all planet fitness types that will not let me deadlift or squat; only machines. i was finally able to get a bar and some weights for my garage, but i don't have the space or money for a rack, so deadlifts it is. I do like the idea of rows, so i'll try and work in some pendleys, things like that; thanks for the suggestion!

    I see, this covid-19 is a gamechanger. Im lucky I got my rack years ago. I think you are doing great, its just as easy to give up on training, I can tell thats not an option for you. You will propably evolve to a DL specialist, strong as hell.

    not really, i pretty much just have room for the bar and the pads protecting the floor. Perhaps sometime next year i can revisit the money situation as well and hopefully make a little more room for one

    Where there is a will there is a way. Lifting in the corner of a bedroom living in an apartment townhouse I built up to bp 280 sq 285-5 and dl 340 on a minimum of almost all homemade equipment. Granted I worked at a machine shop when I built my rack and bar. I had to buy just plates. This was 40 years ago... and I if I knew what I know now..
