    Carson : Had a medical episode last year with tears in both shoulders, and whole body stiff and weak. Been building up since, but have only got to 75% of where i was. Hoping my current program will build up muscle mass and translate to more power when i can go heavy. Will need to get to 55 k clean and press before i can see if my shoulders can stand the stresses of snatches and jerks slamming down on the shoulders.

    I'm amazed that you can still do cleans. I started lifting at age 66. I tried cleans but wound up passing out. I gave up on them.

    That was wise, Carson, as the exercise does not smile on you.
    When I began my masters olympic weightlifting career in my mid sixties, I was well prepared for the exercises. I had twenty years as a competitive masters swimmer, and thirty years of tai chi practice and teaching, and was a well conditioned distance runner (not fast).
    The State olympic lifters said I dropped lower in the snatch and clean than any master, and I was more flexible than the young ones. My facebook avatar is me doing a deep squat snatch.
    What I did not have, and do not have, is great physical strength, so that limits severely what I can lift.
