    As a rule I use; 8~12 for upper and 10~30 for lower

    My advice to you DKD at your age is to limit the amount of reps for the upper body and go by how the exercise feels rather than counting reps for a while.

    Have a bit of fun with the time under tension thing and focus on maintaining the tension on the muscle being worked, smooth controlled reps.

    I just re read the op, I see merit in working the back with high rep's pulls from differing angles, like rows, chin-ups, dead's, SLDL, farmers walk's are a requirement for a strong healthy back, just Be cautious that for for the older trainee can suffer with sore elbows.

    Pushing requires less, much less.

    thx Little Silver Goose!

    I think it's a good comment about the reps / feel thing. I think sometimes there's a risk if you follow a very mechanical progressive resistance approach (say a regular 3 x 10, increase by 2.5kg next session) that you get consumed in the numbers and increasing the weight. You want to hit that target weight so much, that some cheating/momentum inevitably comes into play at some point. Form is paramaount Little Silver Goose.
