Summer training - Seattle
I'm looking for help designing a training regimen for the off season.
I'm currently looking into hiring a personal trainer to help me with squat, deadlift ect form in the gym. Right now I am following a modified Rippetoe Starting Strength routine but I'm about to hurt myself if I don't get my form down.
I need to come up with a regimen that I expect should include basic compound lifts and core work, with some cardio. I can push myself a lot harder than I'm working out now I just need to know I'm doing the right things. If anyone knows a personal trainer around Seattle that works specifically with skiers that would be sweet. Also would like to hear if you have any basic input on what I should be doing.
Any help much appreciated.

suggest high altitude action....skin,bike,hike whatever season allows.Gym training is great.Mountain training at 7000' +builds inner core strength.Biking up local resorts is so mentally rewarding! There is no quitting either,driving for a summit will force way more effort out of a human.On a side note ...mosh pit training has been my favorite,fight for a dozen slayer songs at a show,is the funnest workout!ski paintingshttp://michael-cuozzo.fineartamerica.com" horror has a face; you must make a friend of horror...horror and moral terror.. are your friends...if not, they are enemies to be feared...the horror"....col Kurtz

I'm looking into this as well. Tired of getting injured. Have heard good things about TheLab Crossfit center and plan to go talk to the owner tomorrow evening to feel it out. I'll let you know what I think.
Anybody have other gyms/people I should look into? I'm capable of training by myself, but I was just released from physical therapy and would love to find someone who has worked with athletes coming back from injuries. I'm capable of doing all my usual activities at the moment (minus hiking downhill on snow with a pack, which seems to both my knee), but I'd like to find someone who can help rid me of my long-term compensation issues.

Start with 2 twelve ounce curls at breakfast, ride 20 miles down hill in and flat to work. At lunch, devour the cheapest, nearest food and as much of it as possible. After work, go to the gym and get a set of weights from the indian guy at the counter. Finish one sixteen ounce curl per 3 miles ridden on the way back. At each hill, spin till you're about to puke, it comes a lot faster the farther you've gone.
If you'd like some pointers let me know.Rogue Weather - Providing accurate, useful, and detailed weather outlook information for the West Coast
