Bruce Lee’s Thumb Pushups

Posted on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017 by John Wood
The great martial artist Bruce Lee was a big proponent of physical training and with good reason. He understood… he “got it” … which is why he also made it a point to train his grip. Building stronger fingers, wrists, hands and forearms is obviously very important in combat settings. Here’s Master Bruce doing pushups on only his thumbs in between takes while filming Game of Death – an incredible feat. Can anyone today do this?

Ab Training: Shaolin Style

Posted on Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 by John Wood
How do Shaolin Monks train their abs? Here’s one way: this fellow is hanging upside down with his legs over a tree branch. He fills a small cup with water from the jar below him, sits up, and dumps it into a bucket which hangs above. No sets and reps needed, the workout ends when the bucket is filled.
