Controversy, legend, hyperbole, and rumor surround the life and death of Bruce Lee, but the irrefutable fact of the matter is that he had an awesome physique that was the product of years of training, discipline, and hard work.

This book avoids much that is controversial about the inimitable though many have tried "Little Dragon",and sometimes ventures into near hagiography, but still, At this time of baseless memes and hagiographic hyperbole, a book on Lee's actual training regimen is needed.

This book avoids much that is controversial about the inimitable though many have tried "Little Dragon",and sometimes ventures into near hagiography, but still, much can be gleaned from such a work that is of great value and extremely inspirational.

Using interviews with his family, close friends, and colleagues as well as his personal notes, the book gives a clear outline of his various workout routines over the years, from traditional Wing Chun to circuit training and the development of Jeet Kune Do. Worth downloading if one wants inspiration in one's workout routine I have added several of his exercises to mine since reading it , or just wants to learn more about this great martial artist and thinker.

Oct 21, Demeter77 rated it really liked it. This book is like getting a glimpse into the mind of a legend. Some of the weight training protocols are outdated and strength training has evolved since, but that's not the point of this book.

What's brilliant about this book is Lee's entire approach, mindset and philosophy. Very inspiring. Even if you're not a Bruce Lee fan, but have an intere This book is like getting a glimpse into the mind of a legend.

Read this book years ago. Great to see Bruce's workout regime first hand, including his diet and nutrition choices. I requested the beef with oyster sauce at his favorite restaurant Tai Tung in Seattle, which is still under the same ownership as when Bruce visited — highly recommend if you're in the area!

Also very interesting to see how Bruce's training routine evolved from his influence with asian american bodybuild Read this book years ago.

Also very interesting to see how Bruce's training routine evolved from his influence with asian american bodybuilder friends in the early days, and into more functional training less aesthetic, bulky muscles later on. His original notes and training routines are included, which is pure GOLD to see in his own handwriting.

May 29, Kris rated it liked it. Strong insights into how Bruce Lee approached fitness and exercise with workout descriptions and programs. It's not a how-to book, but more a list of things Lee did and why. If you want to apply them to your own life, you'll need further resources. Feb 19, Chanakya rated it it was amazing. Long live mentor Bruce Lee. View 1 comment. Sep 09, Neale Anderson rated it liked it.

Can be quite repetitive. There are some nuggets in here though Jul 12, Richard rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great resource on a variety of workout routines and motivation for the martial artist. Dec 05, Bernie Gourley rated it really liked it Recommends it for: At the time Norris was the World Middleweight Karate Champion, a top-ranked athlete, but he looks comparatively doughy set across from Lee. Sure, he had favorably genetics, but he also had—by all accounts—a sterling work ethic and a conscientious approach to fitness.

Best practices have shifted here and there with regard to the science of human performance. In fact, Lee, himself, followed the science of his time and recommended his students do the same. It should also be noted that Lee—perhaps because of this philosophy—was often ahead of his time on issues like cross-training.

Intermediate and advanced fitness practitioners should know what to take and what to leave, but beginners should proceed with caution.

One must be flexible as well as strong and be mobile more than muscly. The books 24 chapters and ancillary matter are logically arranged. The chapters at the fore provide general information on weightlifting and related topics, the middle of the book is gets into specialized exercises by body part as well as special topics like stretching and nutrition, and the final few chapters get into sequencing and other information about how Lee arranged his fitness activities.

The one way in which I think the book could be substantially improved would be more relevant photos and graphics, particularly in the sections that deal with specialized exercises. However, they are all of Lee, and, of course, he had a great deal more photos taken either in action sequences e. However, the subject in the photo need not be Lee. Feb 18, Joshua Mooney rated it really liked it. I picked up this book on a whim in hopes of gleaning some ideas for exercises and learning a bit more about Bruce Lee himself.

He seems to have used a fairly standard combination of 'warm up' runs and times sprints to build endurance. But what intrigued me the most was how he varied his foot landings depending on how fast or slow he was going, I picked up this book on a whim in hopes of gleaning some ideas for exercises and learning a bit more about Bruce Lee himself.

But what intrigued me the most was how he varied his foot landings depending on how fast or slow he was going, using heel strikes for longer slower distances, mid foot strikes for shorter distances, and forefoot strikes for sprints.

This puts him in keeping with many recent studies on natural human gate and foot strike patterns. I personally found his approach to building and maintaining endurance through sprinting to be very well-founded, and have been able to integrate more speedwork into my routine by mimicking his.

The rest of the book was really good as well, and I am sure any boxers and weight lifters will find plenty of interesting material in it. The sections dealing with core strength in particular should prove useful to athletes of any sort. What surprised me somewhat is that Bruce's techniques for training his punches or building his arms were generally not at all strange or particularly exotic.

He used barbells, chin-up bars, jump ropes, hefty punching bags, and focus pads. His workouts were not prolonged affairs either; they generally only lasted around twenty of thirty minutes. I suppose the most important takeaway from this work is that no matter what you do for exercise, whether you are a power-lifter, martial artist, or endurance athlete, there is no 'magic super-route' to fitness.

It's all about finding a technique that works, sticking to it, and constantly improving it as you learn. Oct 12, Y H rated it it was amazing. Nov 20, Devin rated it it was ok. This book was about the hard work put into the body of Bruce Lee. This book really wasn't what I had expected it was good but I was thinking it would be more about the action that had went on in his everyday life.

But it wasn't bad because it was like I was reading how to eat better and how to get the best out of a work out. Overall I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody unless they are looking to get stronger and put these workouts to use Apr 27, Gregory rated it really liked it. Anyone who has an interst in Bruce Lee and his philosophy of fitness will enjoy this book. It contains everything from his workouts, diet, life story and other great details about Bruce Lee and his life.

I enjoyed reading about how Bruce Lee worked hard for his great physique and all the hard work he put into it. I still reference this book for some workouts regarding my strength training, flexibility trainging, and martial arts routines.

If you have no real interest in fitness you could probably Anyone who has an interst in Bruce Lee and his philosophy of fitness will enjoy this book. If you have no real interest in fitness you could probably find a better Bruce Lee book to read than this one.

I was tempted to give this three stars but overall I think this is a good book. Parts of the book are redundant but once you learn to skip over the same exercise descriptions over and over its a good read.

The chapter describes a routine very similar to Starting Strength. His emphasis on strength and flexibility combined, commonly referred to as mobility shows Bruce Lee truly understood fitness.

Forty years later st I was tempted to give this three stars but overall I think this is a good book. Forty years later strength training and mobility are now the new trends. Will reference this book again. Aug 31, Tristan Chermack rated it it was amazing. Probably the most fascinating book on Bruce Lee yet. It covers not his film career or martial arts training, but his physical training.

Not many realize that Bruce Lee was an innovator in physical training and body building. This book documents, as much as possible, what he did for training and how he built his body to be capable of the amazing feats he was capable of.

Sep 16, Matt Mackey rated it really liked it. Very insightful look into the training methods and training philosophy of the Man himself. This was my first training guide, and started me down the long road into the world of fitness You don't read it as much as browse.

There's a good bit of information to be unpacked by a discerning eye, and a lot of wisdom behind his practices. May 04, Abieffendi rated it liked it. I think the content is quite elaborate on how to get body like Bruce Lee. The book also share Bruce Lee's philosophy which might give you the foundation of bruce lee's exercise. I think this is the greatest book about Bruce Lee because the greatest thing about Bruce Lee is, in my opinion, his body and what he could do with it.

So, therefore, these people are coming in and asking me to teach them, not so much how to defend themselves or how to do somebody in.
