ABOUT OUR WEIGHTLIFTING PROGRAMS & SEMINARS

If you’ve ever wondered:

“Where can I find actionable weightlifting advice that gets results?” You’re in the right place.

At Ma Strength, you get actionable, experience-based weightlifting knowledge built over decades by pioneers in the discipline of Chinese weightlifting.

Here, athletes, trainers, and coaches from all walks of life unite to learn weightlifting techniques that improve every type of lift, from classical, to strength training, .to bodybuilding.

Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned weightlifting veteran, speak English, Italian, or Chinese, our approach will completely change how you think about training, technique, and physiology.

"'As a self taught and novice Olympic lifter , I was hoping to get more rigorous and methodical instruction on the lifts. The course delivered in spades. The approach to the lifts is coherent and builds the movements up from the ground, based on quite detailed technical and scientific principles, based on the years of Chinese research and success in competition. I can now go and practice my lifts on my own with a set of simple and consistent checkpoints for correct lifting. Overall it was fun and instructive and I would urge anyone interested in lifting or the Chinese technique to attend." --- Noel Gregor Paterson-Jones, 2019 Particpant, Bristol, UK
