Any older guys on easy strength?

Why both DL and Good Mornings? That seems like too much of the same movement.
The traditional deadlift has always felt more like a squat variation than an hinge to me but I know it's more of a hinge. I suck at overhead squats though so Im thinking of putting those in instead.

Seems to me it depends on how you set up. I've doing cleanse which really start with low hips, very squatty deadlift. But I also do Romanian DL's and start by regular DL from the floor (don't have racks). I do that last with hips much higher and it feels mostly like a hinge.

I find OH head squats very challenging to my mobility limitations so I've been working them w/ just PVC pipe which has been doing really good things for my posture and I think, most other lifts.

Speaking of "older guys" I'm 69

I switched it up this week and will do the following for the next few weeks.

Warmup-dumbell swings (don't have kettle bells, goblet squats both until I feel warm

Deadlifts
Incline dumbbell bench
Overhead squats
Pull ups
Waiter carries and/or farmers walks

I did this Monday and eneded up feeling like I was 80 by the end of the day. Today I tried to really concentrate on form and take care of my back.
