Bruce Lee nunchucks Daily training

Scientific training can improve one’s own quality, while improper training will harm oneself, so it is necessary to master this knowledge.

Warm up for the first quarter

Warm-up exercises are essential to tense and relax muscles during training and to avoid muscle injuries or ligament strains. Warm-up exercise is to coordinate all parts of the body, enhance flexibility, expand the field of activity, accelerate blood circulation, and fully provide energy to the limbs, so as to fully improve speed and strength in training and actual combat.

Warm-up exercises should choose some exercises that are easier to do, and try to be as close as possible to the next training content, depending on the specific situation. In colder climates, it takes longer than in warmer climates, and warming up in the morning is longer than in the afternoon. Generally speaking, 5~10 minutes is preferable.

General warm-up exercises are:

Jump rope (see page 130), flexibility activity (see page 120~122), move head and neck, shoulders, ankles, etc.

The second section is flexible

The importance of good flexibility:

1. Make the output smooth, more explosive.

2. Make the speed faster.

3. Make movements more coordinated and effortless.

4. It can reduce the risk of injury in training and actual combat, such as joint sprains, muscle or ligament strains, etc.

1. Wrist

Third Section Power

Remember: In addition to building muscle, you must also increase speed and flexibility.

If you are fast, flexible, endurance and strength, you can make perfect movements no matter what sport you do. On the contrary, if there is only strength and other qualities are weak, even a strong person can only chase the bullfighter like a big stupid bull in actual combat with effort and fatigue without any effect.
