The Zhan Zhuang Qigong system is a famous and popular standing Qigong Meditation exercise system. The original Zhan Zhuang were health methods used by Daoists in recent centuries. Martial artists who already had static standing methods combined these with the internal mechanics of Zhan zhuang to create superior strength exercises. The goal of Zhan zhuang in martial arts has been to develop a martially capable body structure. Nowadays, most practitioners have again returned to a health-preservation orientation in their training, and few teach Zhan Zhuang as a martial method.

The word Zhan zhuang is the modern term; it was coined by Wang Xiangzhai. Wang, a student of Xing Yi Quan, created a method of Kung Fu based entirely upon Zhan zhuang, known as Yiquan - 'Intent Fist.' Yiquan's method of study is Zhan zhuang plus movements that continue the feeling of the Standing Post in action.

The most common Zhan zhuang method is known as Hún Yuán - 'Completely Round', 'Round Smoothness', or Chēng Bào - 'The Tree Hugging' stance. This posture is entirely Daoist in its origins, and has many variations. It is the main training posture in all branches of Yiquan. This practice has recently also become common practice in Taiji and Qigong schools. In Xing Yi Quan, the practice of Sān Tǐ Shì (三體勢 / 三体势, Heaven, Earth, and Man) has been a root practice for centuries.
