Anyone whose fibula rotates in his hip joint is too messed up anatomically to stand, much less ski.

There is nothing worst than someone who doesn't have the knowledge throwing around words incorrectly. You can see how inversion and eversion can be mixed up, but not knowing where the major bones connect is weak.

Is it wrong if my anterior muscles are burning after 10-15 slow short turns?

I never had this burning sensation until today where I started to focus on keeping the uphill ski on LTE by holding uphill leg tipping tension while tipping the free foot to LTE.

I also practiced Diana's brush turn video where one of the exercises is to do a o frame side slip.

I find that holding the uphill ski on LTE takes a lot of muscular effort.

Am I doing it wrong or my tipping muscle is just under-utilized?

Very hard to know for sure without video. Having said that one fallacy about PMTS that seems to be perpetuated is that when you ski with PMTS it's effortless. The reality is that when you ski with correct PMTS movements you are engaging and using large numbers of muscles and you are working them hard. Just maxing out CA at the end of every arc requires serious effort and engages the entire core area and taxes it significantly. So yes the effort involved in tipping, progressively tipping more throughout the arc requires muscular effort that will feel quite significant especially if you aren't used to it.

I'm also using that video to work on the release.
I'm finding that it takes muscular effort as well, probably because I am not used to doing it.
It also takes a lot of mental focus to do it in linked turns once I start flexing
the stance leg and actively flatten the stance ski and then continue tipping to LTE.
But it works and balance transfer happens naturally to the uphill ski when the hips
move across and move into the ideal position.

Thanks jbotti. My legs have definitely gotten much bigger compare to pre-season :lol:
