hard to say because there are so many factors involved. How lifting affects skiing...very little as skiing is so dependent on conditions which are already so volatile.

I basically had to reset everything when I got here because of altitude, cold, environment... too many changes to know what was wrong. Since then, I have added carbs (oats, potatoes, fruit, and some milk) back and unlimited but leaner meat. Lifting on top of skiing has been fine, but progress is slow. My body doesn't cue me well on my recovery, so I just gauge based on squat performance (very slowly improving). I'm thoroughly enjoying myself at the moment, with the exception of this nagging shoulder, so no complaints about anything.

Lets make a pact to get our shoulders better though. I have access to an oly setup now so I'm desperate to get to learning the lifts. Snatch overhead is still way unstable/uncomfortable.

Makes sense. An autoregulation approach may be good in this situation.

Slow and steady, I've learned.

And don't fall :-) (Skiiing tweaked my shoulder in the first place).

Aight back.

Haven't taken time off, just been uber busy. Been using an A/B template and incorporating some oly stuff. Shoulder still isnt perfect, but not painful at all. Workouts are templated like so:

Oly Heavy
Oly Light
Press
Squat/Dead
Row/Chin

Things have been going well, little bit fatter but fuck it. Moved down valley to Basalt. I'm now situated on the Roaring Fork...supreme fly fishing. Theres a full record of my lifts on semileslog.wordpress.com.

I'm not an expert on form -- should post to the weightlifting forum.

The two big things I saw were:

1) you have a classic "bubbling out" on your start - you are pulling the bar around your knees in a pretty nasty bar path -- could add mucho kilos just by fixing that
2) The second pull is slow

To address (1), focus on halting deads, working the sweep in until you hit the second pull position. Your weight should shift from forefoot to the heels as you push the bar off the ground. You may need to push your knees out, but I expect you have more clearance at the knees than you think you do.
