He was a Chinese martial artist and actor. Bruce Lee performed some incredible feats. He weighed only 130 pounds. He had a punching power of 350 pounds. Bruce Lee could do about 1500 push-ups in a row by two hands.
400 push-ups in a row by one hand, 200 push-ups by two-finger of one hand, 100 by the thumb of one hand. This record has not been broken by anyone till date.
He practiced 5000 punches a day and could give nine punches in one second. Bruce Lee’s kicks were so fast for cameras that he was filmed in slow motion. He could jump to 8 ft from a standstill.
Lee died on July 20, 1973 at the age of 32. There was no visible external injury; however,according to autopsy reports, Lee's brain had swollen considerably. The autopsy found Equagesic in his system. When the doctors announced Lee's death, it was officially ruled a " death by misadventure".
