I came across this article on a facebook group. I'll be honest, I'm not an expert on weight lifting, but what the article was saying seems to make sense - what do others think? http://xinjiayilu.azurewebsites.net...o+also+want+to+practice+internal+martial+arts I will say that I believe weight training should be a part of any serious internal martial arts training system. It's daft to wrap a blunt needle in cotton, and expect it to pierce the opponent. The needle needs to be sharpened.
