10x10 is very impressive, especially for your age.I just got home from squats. I do deadlifts as well. Once a week. Form becomes so important.
As I do mostly German volume training, 10x10 with 30 seconds rests, its important to maintain form when you start to fatigue. If you feel it slipping, you stop. The next week you can shoot to get all ten sets in and then go up in weight the following week.
Right now I’m sitting here feeling incredible. I’m delaying eating so I can continue the “man juice” feeling. When I start to feel my body “draw in”, I will eat. I interval fasted since last night and it’s around 6:15 pm now. So I will slam some eggs and a protein mix shake. Life is good.
I limit myself to 2 heavy sets of each exercise per week, as I've learned that 3, 4 and 5 sets don't make any difference for me.
That's one of the benefits of lifting for a long time: you learn what your body responds to.
I do incorporate some light sets of squats and bench throughout the week, more for flexibility and muscle memory than anything else.
