Ken Adams says:
"I am squatting 70kg at my heaviest set at the moment(8 reps), in regard to deadlifts I will NEVER do them!! I know too many people who blew a disk and I am planning on training for many decades to come. And I am aware all the hardcore trainers will go on a rant that if your form is correct there is no danger but I am not interested."
And in answer to the question how heavy is too heavy:
"For me its not so much about lift ceilings, if I get to 10 reps then I will move up in weight"
