Learn the secrets to obtaining Bruce Lee's astounding physique with this insightful martial arts training book.

The Art of Expressing the Human Body , a title coined by Bruce Lee himself to describe his approach to martial arts, documents the techniques he used so effectively to perfect his body for superior health and muscularity.

Beyond his martial arts and acting abilities, Lee's physical appearance and strength were truly astounding. He achieved this through an intensive and ever-evolving conditioning regime that is being revealed for the first time in this book.

Drawing on Lee's notes, letters, diaries and training logs, Bruce Lee historian John Little presents the full extent of Lee's unique training methods including nutrition, aerobics, isometrics, stretching and weight training.

In addition to serving as a record of Bruce Lee's training, The Art of Expressing the Human Body , with its easy-to-understand and simple-to-follow training routines, is a valuable source book for those who seek dramatic improvement in their health, conditioning, physical fitness, and appearance.

Excellent book that serves as an introduction to how Bruce Lee achieved that extraordinary physique. The most interesting parts are those related to nutrition, state of mind, and day to day activities of Bruce. You should note that routines should be customised according one needs and not to copy others, in this case Bruce, as everyone has different physiognomy.

Few people have the dedication to train like Bruce Lee did. But with the publication of this book, we cannot claim ignorance as our excuse. This book meticulously lays out Bruce Lee's training regime and it's changes over time and evolution through his career. That alone should be enough of a recommendation. If it isn't, then I don't know what to tell you.
