Onward to spring: good and bad

So, the bad is that my weight is up to 197.5. I like to be under 195. I am eating too much for my current age and activity level; I have to remember I am walking 20 miles a week, not 35. So, I’ll adjust…again.

Today: PT, (full), deadlifts, farmer’s walks, 5K walk with a hill (great for 2.7 then kind of tough)

The deadlifts: 10 x 134, 10 x 190 (ok, so far), 10 x 225 (not great), 10 x 225 (somewhat better, but something to be desired in terms of form), 10 x 255 4 inch handle (ok, happy with these)

Farmer’s walks with handles: three 80 second walks with 52 in each hand: 44 lb plate, 8 lb handle.

Now here is what I mean about my deadlifts from the “low” position.

Using 210 lb (a week or two ago)

and 225 today:

It seems that my form starts to fall apart in this 15 lb. range.
