As you know, by asking the question on a forum focused on oly lifting and the like, you'll get answers consistent with that focus.
I don't know the right answer. i doubt there's one approach that is right, but before deciding anything, if I were you I'd be inclined to ask Larry Gluckman what he thinks. Larry has been a college the coach. He was an Olympian, and he worked with C2. He's involved in the development program at Craftsbury. Larry had his college rowers lift, and I expect he could give you some helpful thoughts.
