    In addition to stretching, some lightweight accessory work also helps prior to getting into your main lifts. For example, I'll typically do some RC work on the cables prior to my upper body sessions.

    Don't let your grip strength hold back DL progress though - use straps if you have to. I'd definitely prioritize working your grip though. I used to use the mixed grip often, but stopped due to some...

    Agree with this.

    You could get some capillary-level issues under certain conditions, but certainly not injury-type issues.

    I think you'll be fine either way. Sitting in an airplane seat isn't particularly grueling, so working out prior should be fine. If you told me you were going to climb a mountain tomorrow, I would...

    The Smith machine has it's uses. I'm not a fan of movements like squats on the Smith, but I'll occasionally do a bench movement and regularly use it for calf raises.

    Form is everything with DL. Since you haven't done it in years, it's even more relevant to place extra attention your form and flexibility. See how it feels over the next few days; could just be...

    You can probably speed up a little. Unless your resting is very low, your cardio rate should be a higher than 77. Incline the treadmill more if you don't want to increase speed.

    There are certain stretches and ankle mobility work that can help if the issue isn't too bad. Do a web search and it's probably the first couple links.

    Looks fine to me.

    Unilateral work can help even out imbalances though.

    2-3 years, although I only trained DL once every 1-2 weeks. So, likely less if I had prioritized it.

    I guess you could just to replace it in your routine, although I wouldn't say incline flys are a substitute for incline DB press, or incline BB press for that matter. But, I've done something similar...

    I've used it in the past as a finishing movement only. Don't currently do pullovers. I've never placed much emphasis on it.

    Even doing them with DB's would be a better alternative. Upright rows on a smith machine are terrible IMO.

    Otherwise, front raises is somewhat similar.

    If you're hitting them directly without results, definitely try backing off and increasing the indirect work. I've found successful progress with arms via high push/pull volume.
