Review by

If there is one book that deals specifically with Bruce Lee's physical fitness routine this is it. The thing about this book tough is Bruce Lee was always researching new and better ways to train his body in order to supplement his martial art skills. So essentially this book is a amalgamation of all that research. If you are looking for a book that tells you to do 3 sets of this followed by 4 sets of that, than you should probably try something else.
