    not gonna give a whole break down for form because there has been plenty already. Just when doing any kinda workout try your best to keep your feet straight. I noticed that they tend to rotate outwards and it is a very common thing for people to do

    Ild recommend skipping upright row and behind the head shoulder press. Replace them with other shoulder exercises like dumbell high pull and standard military press. Some people are fine doing these exercises and never experience an issue. But from a mechanical point of view these arent great for your shoulders no matter how good your form is. Your kind of entering an injury lottery with these exercises. Can result in alot of pain raising your arms above your head. This is a pretty important movement in climbing, so the risk to rewards ratio for these exercises arent in your favour. Unfortunately this advice comes from experience 😂

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not really in the positiin to criticize Bruce Lee, but I think the up right row and behind the neck press should have been replaced with exercises that are a bit more safe.

    Bruce used to do 10 hours a day for seven years, check out Beerdy channel. He did Bruce's training program for 6 hours a day for some months, however Beerdy said he had to stop as his body was showing signs of deep exhaustion, something he said that contributed to Bruce's death.

    Hey Magnus, what is the source of this workout, I tried to google it and there is lots fo different Bruce Lee workouts out there. It's really hard to tell which one is created buy actual Bruce Lee himself. I really like the one you are doing but I would reorder it, putting complex exercises at the beggining and the isolated at the end. Do you think that would change anything or should I just try as is?

    When trying any workout you need to prioritize 1) Join comfort (This means its fine if your muscles are uncomfortable but your joints shouldn't be). 2) Form 3) Enough weight to tire yourself within 6-12 reps I think you should research any workout you do better understand what form you want to adopts. Although there are some approaches to form that are universal to any workout. Form can influence: 1) What muscles you target. 2) How many muscles are involved. 3) How much weight you can use. 4) The likelihood of injury. The only critique I have is you not doing your homework before you go into a serious training session and taking advice from a internet comment section. Please do you research so you can avoid injury and better target the muscles you want to workout in a way that suits your fitness needs.

    Wow. Bruce Lee was ahead of his time with this routine. High intensity intervals with mostly compound movements. As I recall, the forearm workout is pretty brutal, maybe overkill, but would be fun to see Magnus try. My favorite Bruce Lee fact is that he was convinced that he was going to somehow be forced into fighting Muhammed Ali. Bruce was obviously strong, fast and skilled, but Ali had at least 7 or 8 inches and almost a hundred pounds on him at fighting weight. This was one of the big motivations that kept Bruce training hard, and apparently even coming up with plans for what he would do in such a contest. The crazy thing is, I think he'd have held his own. Probably not for a knockout but with some other kind of injury that would hamper Ali's ability to catch him.

    Fun Video as always Magnus, however, as a Bruce Lee fan, while he was alive, and having read two different books on his life the data I heard was he did minimal weight training, as when attempting it early in his training he gave himself an injury. As an avid weight trainer myself 8-12 reps for working sets would definitely put on muscle mass which Bruce was not interested in and would have known as he studied weight training quite extensively. I think I can say with reasonable certainty that the workout in the video was not done by Bruce Lee for any length of time, if at all. Hypertrophy kicks in above 5 or 6 reps.

    Try always to look forward when doing lifts, I noticed it was especially bad in barbel curl, as you risk damaging your cervical spine and/or the supporting muscles of it when you bend your head forward so much when under the stress of lifting heavy weights.Also behind the neck press is discouraged now days from a lot of sources also due to it forcing your neck to bend forward, you can do a military press from in-front of your neck and it's the same thing but much safer.

    Pretty good Video except for the fact that the training you trying to do from bruce lee is a normal strength routine program. That means he did it by completing all sets for one exercise and after completing it he progressed to the next exercise. I've been doing his training program for over 25 years now and have all the training methods that he did till his death. Researching would be better with his books and published notes the next time. I wish you all the best and no hard feelings, keep it up.

    Hey Magnus. When you do curls many people showed me, that if you pull your shoulder blades up -> back -> and then back down (keeping them as far back as possible) before doing the curls in this position, your form will be cleaner cause you can only use upper arm strength and nearly dont use your chest, breast or shoulder muscles. btw nice video would love more clean training videos from you ! .. even though you already got a completely insane physique :D

  • Isak Linton

    Be careful with your knees on the clean press Magnus! :) For your current form, I think that it would be good for you to push your knees outwards actively during the whole rep to not cause any serious damage :) Looked better in the end, for some reason xD Also looks like your knees are going over your toes on your squats, keep them behind your toes. This is super important for every1 so think of this the next time you work out with weights guys! :D

    My PT has actually told me that behind the neck press is bad for your shoulders due to loading them while at the end of their range. and you're not really working out anything you wouldn't be by having less extreme angle on your shoulders, by bringing the bar in front of your neck.
