I'm 63 and have been lifting for about 35 years. Ten years ago I deadlifted 610 @ 198. I've had some injuries that have set my lifting back quite a bit. All my upper body lifts are still pretty good, but my lower body lifts, especially deadlifts, are significantly lacking. I still have pretty good strength from the rack, but I can't seem to get a good pull from the floor. Once and awhile I start to make some progress, but then my glutes, hips, or back gets really sore. I've tried PT, massages, acupuncture, etc. but nothing seems to work. I know I need to back off and switch things around but I haven't found the right combination that works yet. Any suggestions?
Have you been working on stability? I'd start doing the McGill three, planks, McGill situps, and birs dogs for a warmup and extra workouts on off days while keeping up with soft tissue care and acupuncture as an adjunct to your other work.
