Bruce Lee’s physical feats
Bruce Lee’s striking speed from 3 feet away was five hundredths of a second.
Bruce could perform one-hand push-ups using only his thumb and index finger
Bruce would ride the equivalent of 10 miles in 45 minutes on a stationary bike, sweating profusely afterwards.
Bruce could collapse steel reinforced head protection gear.
Bruce was so quick he could snatch a dime off a person’s open palm before they could close it, and leave a penny behind.
Bruce was able to lift a 300-lb. barbell.
Bruce could floor an opponent with a punch 1 inch away.
Bruce could throw grains of rice up into the air and then catch them in mid-flight using chopsticks.
Bruce could cause a 300-lb bag to fly towards the ceiling with a sidekick.
Bruce would hold an elevated v-sit position for nearly 30 minutes at a time.
(During his prime, not during Long Beach Karate Championships) Bruce Lee’s one-inch punch was known to have sent 200-lb. men flying back 15 feet (this is the commonly reported distance by most who knew Bruce)
Bruce could perform leg lifts with only his shoulder blades resting on the edge of a bench (he could hold his torso and legs out straight and perform leg lifts)
Bruce Lee could perform 3 kick combination in midair (composed of head-height side and crescent kicks)
A doctor who knew Bruce once claimed that he was “Muscled as a squirrel, and spirited as a horse” and fitter than anyone he had ever seen.
Bruce could thrust his fingers through unopened cans of Coca Cola, this was before the days cans were made of the softer aluminum metal.
Bruce once exploded a 150-pound punching bag with a massive sidekick while training with James Coburn.
Bruce once got mad during a movie filming when told to slow down in his moves because they were too fast for the camera to capture.
He trained from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., including stomach, flexibility, and running, and from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. he would weight train and cycle. A typical exercise 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. Lee would then ride his stationary bicycle for 30-45 minutes at full speed immediately after running. Next, Lee would jump rope for 800 jumps non-stop.
