Okay, it has been a while since I posted on T-Nation. I'm kind of out of the rythm. I'm 38 - will turn 39 in April. I'm wanting to lift in the USAPL masters raw meet in 2012. Quite frankly, I've given up on deadlifting, and seeing how that is 1/3 of what I have to do, that's no good.
When I DL, my back get so fatigued it messes with all my other training. The more I train, the lower my numbers go. I'm thinking it is a hip mobility deal, but I don't know. If tried sumo, no help. I do have a long torso. I've tried rack pulls and same thing.
My squat is fine, my bench if fine, I just can't DL and everytime I train, evertything goes in the toilet. Are we old folks just not meant to DL? Should, I just keep training my squat only and wing it for DL?
FWIW - I'm following Wendlers 5-3-1 with decent results.
