  1. : The important question is what type of lifting you are doing. If you are doing it to bulk up, in the long run this may be detrimental to playing because bulky muscles tend to be less flexible and that is one of the big keys to playing well. : Adean I repeat, as long as you stretch properly, you wont lose flexibility unless you are huge. I also repeat, I am a martial artist and I disagree, martial arts don't work your body very evenly, they leave out a lot of muscle work (like rear deltoids) which leaves you out of proprtion. While I think the martial arts are great, and ya'll should take 'em, I would suggest weight training first.
  2. : : I have noticed that the smaller the muscles the faster they are. Wouldn't weightlifting have an adverse effect on finger speed if the forearms got big? I would think that this would be worse than any loss of flexibility. : : PC : I am a martial artist, and this is a concern for us to, and I have read a lot about it. With muscle size you will not slow down as long as you stretch properly. As long as you keep playing while you work out you'll be : fine, it will keep the strange angles used on in your arms and fingres quick. that didn't turn out to clear. The idea is that it is untrue that you'll slow down as you gain muscle tissue and it is important to keep playing 'cause it uses your muscles in a very specific way.

  4. : I have heard from some people that weightlifting is extremely bad for violin playing because it tightens your arm and wrist. : I have also heard that weightlifting can be very good because is will strengthen your wrist making for a better vibrato. : Could someone please settle this. I want to get stronger, but not at the expense of my violin playing. Thanks As long as you stretch, before, after, and in between sets, you'll be fine. The only way it could present a problem is if you get so huge your muscles get in the way, and i dob yo have the genetic makeup to alllow that nor will you put in the kind of time needed for it.
