comment Alternating exercises from workout to workout?
Alternating A/B sounds good to me. Why the 1-leg squats and ring dips for hypertrophy?

comment Should I drop my deadlift to 190# while switching to StrongLifts if I can already deadlift 425# x1?
@Ericrobert My copy of Stronglifts has deadlifts at 1 set of 5, not 5 or 3 sets. For squats and the rest, doing 3x5 is reasonable. Starting Strength and StrongLifts after the initial period both use 3x5.

If you're deadlifting 425 then maybe off-the-shelf StrongLifts isn't for you. What are your other lifts at? Does StrongLifts explicitly recommend that you drop so much even if you have a pre-existing big deadlift?

comment Method of exercising
Muscles adapt to the specific demand imposed upon them (SAID principle); holding static positions builds strength in a more limited range than resistance through a full range of motion.

comment Is protein powder recommended for older people after workouts?
Seconding Evan. Protein is great, but it doesn't sound like she's doing enough strength training to need supplementary protein.

comment I am hitting walls with my lifts, how can I progress?
The abs/cardio/"whatever takes my fancy"/shoulder work could be the problem; it doesn't sound "very light". So could martial arts. You need to post a more complete history of your lifts for us to have any clue. We need your workout log: what weights you were at when you stalled, the dates, when the martial arts workouts were, the weight you deloaded to, progression from there, and so on. A food log is called for as well; this is a lot of work you're doing and it's likely you're not eating enough.

comment Strength Training Suggestions for Long Distance Running
What's your goal with the lifting? Is it there to maximize your running or does it have other purposes?

What does StrongLifts say to do when you hit a wall? (It's definitely in the program.) Also, note that you're not doing StrongLifts: that program is 3 times a week. You've added extra workouts. What does StrongLifts say about that? (The answer to that is also definitely in the PDF.)

How long have you been working at this goal? A month, six months, six years?
