Lee’s phenomenal fitness meant he was capable of performing many exceptional physical feats.[86][87][88][89] "A man able to perform super human feats that have yet to be equaled."[90] The following list includes some of the physical feats that are attributed to Bruce Lee.


Lee’s striking speed from three feet with his hands down by his side reached five hundredths of a second.[91]


Lee could take in one arm a 75 lb barbell from a standing position with the barbell held flush against his chest and slowly stick his arms out locking them, holding the barbell there for 20 seconds.[92]


Lee’s combat movements were at times too fast to be captured on film for clear slow motion replay using the traditional 24 frames per second of that era, so many scenes were shot in 32 frames per second for better clarity.[93][94][95]

李在格斗的时候,运动速度是如此之快, 当时的摄影设备,使用24/秒的速度拍摄,无法看清其慢动作,所以许多场景是用32帧拍摄的。

In a speed demonstration, Lee could snatch a dime off a person’s open palm before they could close it, and leave a penny behind.[96]


Lee would hold an elevated v-sit position for 30 minutes or longer.[88]


Lee could throw grains of rice up into the air and then catch them in mid-flight using chopsticks.[97]


Lee could thrust his fingers through unopened cans of Coca-Cola. (This was when soft drinks cans were made of steel much thicker than today’s aluminum cans).[95]


Lee performed one-hand push-ups using only the thumb and index finger.[89][97][98]


Lee performed 50 reps of one-arm chin-ups.[99]


Lee could break wooden boards 6 inches (15 cm) thick.[100]


Lee could cause a 200-lb (90.72 kg) bag to fly towards and thump the ceiling with a sidekick.[89]


Lee performed a sidekick while training with James Coburn and broke a 150 lb (68 kg) punching bag.[88][101]
