Over 50 seniors. What lifts have you dropped?

Dropped as in stopped doing because you felt unsafe doing them or were not recovering well. I'm seriously considering dropping squats all together. I've taken a break from them the last 3 weeks and I feel a lot better for it. I did squats on fridays because they left me really sore the whole...

So in an earlier thread I mentioned how I keep injuring my back and a hip with deadlifts. I go along well for a while, then have to stop and lose most if not all of my progress.
