@slugster - It was ultimately closed by David Clemens, and as you say, I agree, I think it belongs here. A key component of martial arts ability is strength and conditioning, and I think by keeping that content here and open, we can hopefully gain more participants through related searches. Can you review/discuss for reopening?

-1. Unproven mystics make for a poor training program, as does outlandish anecdotal claims.

Could you expand upon this, perhaps actually detail what weight lifting should be? And maybe without the text speak writing style?

-1. Exercise (ANY exercise, including MA) you will only lose flexibility to the limits of the range of motion. Stronger muscles are more flexible than weaker ones. I would also point out that while technically correct, much of TKD demands flexibility for optimum, or even decent performance.

@DaveLiepmann - Because MA is a beta site. You can't recommend migration from a beta site, you can only flag. I am inclined to leave it here, as it is more widely applicable to a MA audience, than the limited number of people on a fitness site that would benefit from the answer.
