Help Building a Strength Base

Hi guys. Im 24 years old, i’ve been at the gym for about one year. I beleive I’ve spent alot of time WASTING time there. I never really had any goals, until now. This is what I want to accomplish during the summer

core strength/abs

explosive leg/torso strength

I am training for freestyle skiing, gymnast type skills, I want to be able to do vertical pushups, pullups, etc. As of now my weak points are :

glutes, calves, triceps, chest, forearms, and quads.

I’ve created some scar tissue/adhesion on my left lower trapezius area, so any overhead exercises cause a huge amount of inflammation in that area. I also have a mobilty issue in my left ankle, and last year had a torn a/c joint in the right shoulder, so my sub-scap gets very tight often, making overhead work next to impossible without pain later or the next day.

now I understand I’m asking alot here and i’m even willing to pay someone to design a loosely structured training regimen for me, or even if someone can identify exercises they feel I should be doing, I would immensely appreciate it. I’m glad I found this forum sooner rather the later before I really wrecked myself.

thanks guys…

Get yourself sorted (A.R.T physical therapy) then SEARCH! SEARCH! SEARCH!
Do some work for f*cks sake.

I have seen an ART practioner, I did notice some benefit but the problems resumes shortly after. this doctor I saw did not seem interested in addressing any imbalances i may have which have created this problem in the first place.
