    How people like Bruce Lee got so strong..

    Most of you guys will say "the only way you guys are gunna get stronger is if you guys eat MORE".

    Well then how did Bruce Lee (weighing in like 130-140. Not exceeding 145 thats for sure) get so strong at his bodyweight?

    Pound for pound Bruce Lee was a very strong martial artist.

    Now im not saying I want to be like him but i would like to know how I can get stronger at my bodyweight.

    That is, gaining strength and staying at my relative weight. How would the theory of: eating more = gaining strength apply here?

    Thoughts/comments.

    if you eat more but are working out hard the nutrients from the food will be used to fuel your body, not to recede into uselessness. Bruce Lee, being as cut as he did, probably did bare calisthinetics and cardio. I'm sure the man ate like a truck

    So he ate alot but all of that fuel was used? And little of those contributed to his weight gain?


    Ok i think im starting to understand.

    other opinions are appreciated

    To be honest I think a lot of that is determined by genetics. Thats all I can really offer

    He had a good food diet, im guessing low carb diet. He did a lot of cardio to keep his body fat % low (about 7-8% i think). And ofcourse he did some resistant training to get that definition on his muscles.

    Bruce Lee ("Li Shao Loong"), was 5' 7.5", 135 lbs, at what has been estimated to be 3% bodyfat.


    Don't know if it's true, but 3% bodyfat; sick.

    He actually at one point embraced bodybuilding, buying all the magazines and articles around about weight training. He even did squats in a unique mannor but once he reached his peak at about 160lbs he ceased his bodybuilding and went back to his average weight that he usually fluctuates around (130-145lbs). Quite quickly apparently.

    He probably did have a solid diet.

    No i dont think 3% is right cuz thats nearing death. But he was relatively low.

    And i would admit that his diet was spot on. Apparently he avoided dairy food and focused alot on chinese foods

    Physical fitness
    Bruce Lee in Way of the Dragon in 1972

    After his match with Wong Jack Man in 1965, Bruce Lee changed his approach toward martial arts training. Lee felt that many martial artists of his day did not spend enough time on physical conditioning. Bruce included all elements of total fitness? muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility. He utilized traditional bodybuilding and weight training techniques to develop muscular strength. Lee was careful to emphasize that mental and spiritual preparation were fundamental to the success of physical training in martial arts skills. In his book The Tao of Jeet Kune Do, he wrote

    Training is one of the most neglected phases of athletics. Too much time is given to the development of skill and too little to the development of the individual for participation." "JKD, ultimately is not a matter of petty techniques but of highly developed spirituality and physique.[29]

    The weight training program that Lee developed during a stay in Hong Kong in 1965 placed heavy emphasis on arm development. At that time he could perform single bicep curls with 70 to 80 lbs (about 32 to 36 kg) dumbbell for three sets of eight repetitions. Other weight training exercises, such as squats, push-ups, reverse curls, concentration curls, French presses, and both wrist curls and reverse wrist curls.[30] he performed consisted of 6 to 12 reps (at the time) per set. While this method of training targeted his fast twitch muscles, it also resulted in gaining muscle mass, placing Bruce a little over 160 lbs (about 72 kg).

    Lee was documented as having well over 2,500 books in his own personal library, and eventually concluded that "A stronger muscle, is a bigger muscle", a conclusion he later disputed. Bruce forever experimented with his training routines to maximize his physical abilities and push the human body to its limits. He employed many different routines and exercises including skipping rope, which served his training and bodybuilding purposes effectively.[31]

    Lee believed that the abdominal muscles were one of the most important muscle groups for a martial artist, since virtually every movement requires some degree of abdominal muscle activation. He trained daily from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., exercising stomach muscles, stretching to increase flexibility, and running to increase endurance. From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. he would weight train and cycle. A typical aerobic conditioning routine for Lee would be to run a distance of two to six miles in 15 to 45 minutes, in which he would vary speed in 3?5 minute intervals. Additionally, Lee would also ride the equivalent of 10 miles (about 16 kilometers) in 45 minutes on a stationary bike.[32]

    Lee would sometimes exercise with the jump rope and put in 800 jumps after cycling. He would also include conditioning techniques to toughen the skin on his fists, including thrusting his hands into buckets of harsh rocks and gravel. He would do over 500 repetitions of this on a given day.[33]

    Chuck Norris states, "Lee, pound for pound, might well have been one of the strongest men in the world, and certainly one of the quickest."[34][35][36]
    ---From Wikipedia.


    My guess is Bruce trained for strength and speed and not for size (since he disputed that "a bigger muscle is a stronger muscle" tidbit.) It's definitely possible to gain strength without gaining mass. For example, you'll notice alot of powerlifters increasing their 1RM's without changing weight class.

    Wiki says that his waste fluctuated between 26-28 inches, that's lean as ****.

    Bruce lee cardio was top notch. I bet he ate a sh**t load of food too and trained like an animal. Also bruce electrified himself to bring out some of the muscles. Nevertheless he is the best martial arts always. Huge fan of him.

    I get comments all the time in the gym from people that have seen my progress. They don't understand how my strength has gone up so much, but my size hasn't. I've been lifting for eight months and have gone from 165 to about 188. I still look pretty lengthy but have stuck with a low repetition, high weight routine on every lift. I haven't bulked but have maintained a high protein and fast carb. diet to rebuild promptly. I'm not sure how Lee did it but I'd imagine it was either freakish genetics (metabolism) or he did some serious three rep sets for a long time with the cardio. and fast twitch lifts to get that speed. I actually love keeping my seemingly skinny chiseled frame. I mean I appear pretty skinny to most of the meat heads in the gym, but when I rack pull 495 for three reps, dead lift 425 for three reps, and throw the 95lb. DB's up for five reps on bench, some heads get turned.

    He trained his CNS to recruit a greater number of myofibrils than normal. He also likely had very little sarcoplasmic hypertrophy (which would lead to him appearing smaller and weighing less).

    Same way 130 pound chicks can get 500 pound deadlifts.

    Pound for pound Bruce Lee was a very strong martial artist.

    Now im not saying I want to be like him but i would like to know how I can get stronger at my bodyweight.

    That is, gaining strength and staying at my relative weight. How would the theory of: eating more = gaining strength apply here?

    Thoughts/comments.

    ty
    he did a bunch of cardio also he did martial arts and he did this everyday. He can do a v sit and hold it for 30 mins that is freakin hard lol.

    Very sick indeed. htt p://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Andreas_Munzer (can't post links yet)


    Bruce Lee ate loads of food. He also did 2 hours of cycling every day.

I haven't bulked but have maintained a high protein and fast carb. diet to rebuild promptly. I'm not sure how Lee did it but I'd imagine it was either freakish genetics (metabolism) or he did some serious three rep sets for a long time with the cardio. and fast twitch lifts to get that speed. I actually love keeping my seemingly skinny chiseled frame. I mean I appear pretty skinny to most of the meat heads in the gym, but when I rack pull 495 for three reps, dead lift 425 for three reps, and throw the 95lb. DB's up for five reps on bench, some heads get turned.
    Check your form

    Lee, as well as anyone else who is great.. is a combination of genetics + INSANE WORK ETHIC. I mean he trained his core 2 hours a day, ran for an hour, then weight lifted in the afternoon.. imo thats badass as fk. Hell, I might even get into that some day.
