I have a mate who fought in the UFC. And it wound up costing him money.
Yeah and for every big money champion how many small time guys are fighting for absolutely nothing. A lot more than there are big money guys
See? Competition is bad for you.
He did it so that he could develop as a person. Because MMA is about developing your spiritual side.
Bah, we all know you MMA people are just beasts. He just wanted to hit people, so he could feel safe. That's why he...um, got in a fight with another big bloke?? Or something like that.
You MMA people don't even make sense, man.
There is a risk in training too intensively, however. If you don’t take time to let your body recover, then you risk injury as well as mental exhaustion/boredom/burnout.
There is also something to be said about taking enough time to let the lessons sink in. Your brain needs time to process the information.
So if your 5400 hours is actually realistic, then cramming them all into the shortest possible timeframe may not be the best approach to training. Just what is optimal may vary from person to person and probably cannot be objectively determined. But it is definitely something to keep in mind.
You got a point there about physical recovery although when it comes to mental exhaustion or boredom or burnout that would not be the case for somebody who really has the passion for the martial arts such as Bruce Lee. Heck I don't think Bruce Lee even had much of a problem with physical burnout.
As for the brain processing information, just look at some of those college students studying for advanced degrees. I've got a cousin who got both an MD and a PhD at the same time and all he did was study and eat and sleep and maybe exercise enough to stay in shape and would take the occasional 15 minute break at the video arcade.
Anyway, the average work week is 8 hours a day 40 hours a week, more than the 27 hours a week of training that was discussed in this thread.
Yeah. You definitely can train like a beast and get results.
And diligence really seems to be the secret to success.
I think it’s a good thing he rushed it. He died so young, he didn’t have much time to spare.
Assuming the body is recovering, no excessive injuries, etc., there's a real benefit to compressing the timeframe. You get more exercise, discipline, and toughness from the same total hours when you compress them into fewer days. Like the fight camp you guys do.
All the more reason to get done what you can when you can and not take any longer than you have to, you've only got so long to live and you don't know beforehand when you're going to go.
I do not understand why this post was made.
You are making the claim that Bruce Lee learned more in less years than most people and you say he did not really rush it. Additionally, you made the title of the post be "Bruce Lee rushed it".
So you are making a general statement that does not seem to have be capable to open any discussion and you, admittedly, used a misleading title.
Maybe if you re-word your opening statement into a question we may have more to work with to create a meaningful discussion?
Thanking you for your time,
