That was a nice read. I rarely go to T-nation any more as they have moved to the Breaking Muscle format (Seven Ways to Terrorize your Traps), but sometimes, they do GREAT work.

Make a Difference.
Live. Love. Laugh.
Balance work, rest, play and pray (enjoy beauty and solitude)
Sleep soundly. Drink Water. Eat veggies and protein. Walk.
Wear your seat belt. Don’t smoke. Floss your teeth.
Put weights overhead. Pick weights off the floor. Carry weights.
Reread great books. Say thank you

Seven Ways to Terrorize Your Traps
by Busta Muscle

Anyhow, for sure . . . I enjoyed that sorta historical article there too.
If you're not sweating you need to find another gear.

Right now I follow a classic linear beginner program of

A
Front squats (3x5)
Bench Press (3x8-10, slight incline)
Dumbbell Row (3x8-10)

B
Dumbbell romanian deadlift (3x8-10)
Overhead Press (3x8-10)
Pull-ups (3x8-10)

I usually finish off each session with a couple sets of curls or pushdowns ... for, well, vanity.

The article says "If you make your back and legs stronger, you'll see improvements in pretty much every other lift.". I guess I should rather change those couple of arms sets to something for leg or back?

I would love to do regular deadlifts, but I´ve tried for so many years and my back is shot. Dumbbell RDL works really well for hitting my hamstrings and giving my hinge/lower back some work.

If you could add one excercise to each of my existing training days what would that be or would you rather bump up the sets for legs and back?

Do you have access to a sled? I'd recommend doing some pushes or pulls. Much easier on the back than deadlifts.

Unfortunately I have not. Its a very small gym.

Loaded carries and crawls. Nothing too rigidly structured. The more varied the better.
"I think we often spend too much time focusing on max fitness
and not nearly enough on maintaining our minimums.
It seems we need to think sustainable rather than obtainable.
Meaning whatever we do today, we can do it again tomorrow.
Never taking so much from ourselves that we can't."
