[I:http://martialarts.surrey-sussex.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/AlCase45.png]When people do Bruce Lee workouts of some sort they have no idea just how brutal it can be. They go to the films, they read the martial arts books, but they don’t know what Bruce Lee was really capable of. They don’t have the real data as to physically strong he really was.
You see, it wasn’t just that he was a martial arts fanatic, a physical cultist, but that he could actually do superhuman feats of strength. I’ve listed a few of the things he could do here, and you should consider them seriously when you do your Bruce Lee workouts routine. It’s more than just push ups and sit ups, you see, it is going beyond the limits of the body.
First, the sheer speed coming out of Bruce Lee training routines is astounding. He could deliver a punch in five one hundredths of second…that’s 0.05 seconds. Try timing that on your stopwatch!
Second, Bruce Lee could hold a 75 pound barbell straight from his body-arm horizontal to the ground-for several seconds. That is a massive feat. Go ahead, pick up a simply kitchen chair and hold it arm’s length, and that is only a few pounds.
Here is your sleight of hand, magician’s trick-The Little Dragon could snatch a dime out of your open palm and leave a penny. Man, that is faster than a banker forecloses! It’s hard enough to just snatch a coin, let alone leave some change!
Fourth, think you can do a pretty good push up? Try doing one with just the thumb and index finger! His fingers were stronger than your whole arm!
And this one will send the posers packing, Mr. Lee could do 50 one arm chin up repetitions! Let me say that again…that’s FIFTY one hand pull ups. How would you like to have a python as strong as his arm wrapped around your neck?
Sixth, and this is for all those pretty boys out there who do a few kicks and call it a workout, Bruce Lee could kick a 300 pound kicking bag and make it hit the ceiling! Now that is elephant busting power! Interestingly, Bruce had to have his 300 pound martial arts kicking bags made to order.
Finally, Bruce could do an elevated V-sit up position for half an hour. I would think that that would actually qualify him as a yoga master, in addition to being a martial arts master. Now that you know what to shoot for, go ahead and start your Bruce Lee workouts.
