The Dragon Workout
In today’s workout I decided to pay tribute to the Dragon himself; Bruce Lee. The premise of Bruce Lee’s philosophy concerning his form of Jeet Kune Do is that it was a philosophy of life based around a formless form. As a strength coach and just an individual I really appreciate this philosophy because it comes from a place where creativity allows for the individual to express him or herself as it best suits them. There are no limits with this system.
The Dragon Workout…
The purpose of today’s workout is to teach you how to move better with your body while developing characteristics of movement that are optimized so that you are able to flow like water. I mean if you can’t move well then you will always be limited as an athlete and like Bruce we don’t want to put limits on you, right? Enjoy The Dragon Workout!

Also make sure that your knees come up in front of you when bounding and that they are not pointing towards the ground like a butt kicking motion. Hurdle bounds are performed by jumping hard, landing soft, and recoiling immediately off the ground again. Perform with 5 to 6 hurdles and one round trip counts as a single repetition!)

Additional focus on the kettle bell goblet squat and groin stretch may be necessary before performing. Gauge the intensity of this by gauging the speed. Also make sure that your hands place on the ground inside the lead leg with the knee moving away from the midline to open up your hips.)
