Despite his back injury that remained for rest of his life, Lee's striking speed from three feet with his hands down by his side reached five hundredths of a second.
Lee could take in one arm a 75 lb barbell from a standing position with the barbell held flush against his chest and slowly stick his arms out locking them, holding the barbell there for 20 seconds.
Lee's combat movements were at times too fast to be captured on film for clear slow motion replay using the traditional 24 frames per second of that era, so many scenes were shot in 32 frames per second for better clarity.
In a speed demonstration, Lee could snatch a dime off a person's open palm before they could close it, and leave a penny behind.
Lee would hold an elevated v-sit position for 30 minutes or longer.
Lee could throw grains of rice up into the air and then catch them in mid-flight using chopsticks. - Witnessed by many such as Joe Hyams

Lee performed 50 reps of one-arm chin-ups.
Lee could break wooden boards 6 inches (15 cm) thick.
Lee could cause a 300-lb (136 kg) bag to fly towards and thump the ceiling with a sidekick. ( According to Bob Wall, he has the video tape of him kicking 300lb bag towards the ceiling.)
Lee performed a sidekick while training with James Coburn and broke a 150 lb (68 kg) punching bag.
In a move that has been dubbed "Dragon Flag", Lee could perform leg lifts with only his shoulder blades resting on the edge of a bench and suspend his legs and torso horizontal midair.

recommend to watch documentary "How Bruce Lee Changed the World?"
"Lee, pound for pound, might well have been one of the strongest men in the world, and certainly one of the quickest. Whether doing one-handed, two-finger push-ups, or horizontally holding up a 125-pound barbell, Lee was impressively strong for his size, especially at only 140-145 pounds." - Chuck Norris
"The fact is Bruce was a giant in so many ways."
- Chuck Norris
If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. Bruce Lee
"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. " - Bruce Lee

He was no doubt a great martial artist and philosopher and much more.....
"I wouldn't have put a dime on anyone to beat Bruce Lee in a real confrontation. Bruce Lee was the best street fighter I ever saw, even to this very day, and not just pound for pound — but against anyone in a real fight."
"Bruce Lee is my Idol. I try to learn some techniques from him, especially the quickness of his hands and legs."
"I considered him by far the greatest. And for those who don´t considering him the greatest, at least he is the top candidate for being actually the greatest."
-Joe Lewis, quoted in "Death by Misadventure"
He is the Father of Modern MMA........
Bruce Lee was also a inventor, he made his own designs in sketches and blueprints of machines to develop his physical conditioning and strength which he send to his friend, George Lee(no relation), who made these machines according to his well.
