Tai Chi Tuesday: Applying Tai Chi to Weightlifting

Posted on March 25, 2014 at 12:00 AM


if you are thinking about  starting a weight training program, look to Tai Chi for some good lifting practices.


First, always keep your knees soft. Having your knees hyper-extended (in the locked position) with extra weight can stress the knee joint and the connective tissue around it


Next, as the weight moves, try to feel the weight increase in the souls of your feet. This will help to decrease stress across the other joints.


Finally, keep your breathing cyclic. (Ideally, exhale on the lifting motion.) Those of us who get lost in the lift and forget our breathing pattern should remember to make each motion a breath. This will aid in good oxygen circulation and nutrient distribution as you lift.


What are other Tai Chi practices that can successfully be applied to weightlifting?
