Ma Strength Technique Clinic & Coaching Workshop


The Ma Strength team is coming to Evolve! We are hosting 2 Chinese weightlifting technique clinics over this weekend. It for those wanting to learn the fundamental elements behind Chinese weightlifting technique to improve  snatch, clean, and jerk technique under the guidance of expert coaches at Ma Strength: Ma Jianping and Manuel Buitrago. In this unique weightlifting clinic you will:

  • Learn Chinese weightlifting technique using Coach Ma’s learning progression for the snatch, clean, and jerk,
  • Have your lifting evaluated individually and within a group setting to learn from others, and
  • Practice this style of lifting with weights attendees feel comfortable with while receiving verbal cues from experienced coaches.

The second seminar is a coaches workshop which is primarily a lecture-based seminar for coaches who want to enhance their coaching skills. Experienced athletes who want to improve their understanding of weightlifting techniques are welcomed as well, however we strongly recommend attending our technique seminar to be familiar with fundamental technique and assistance movements. Topics include:

  • An overview of the Chinese weightlifting system
  • Training philosophy & programming
  • Gender differences in training
  • Assistance exercises for snatch, clean, and jerk
  • Programming design for beginner, intermediate, and advanced lifters
  • An overview of recovery methods

In both seminars, all attendees should expect to learn Chinese weightlifting methods as taught in sports schools of all levels  throughout China. These are very practical, hands-on clinics for athletes of all levels who want to improve their ability to perform the lifts and coaches who want to learn an alternative way of approaching the snatch, clean, and jerk. Olympic weightlifters, Cross Fitters, trainers, and coaches are welcomed.
