He competed in powerlifting events so deadlifts, squats and bench/standing presses must have been a big part of his rountine at some point. There's a scene in Double Impact 1991 where he lifts an oil barrel, and he clearly practiced powerlifting techniques by the way he lifts it. He grabs either end of the barrel and does a really neat standting press with it. His technique is flawless, and hes clearly done it many times before making the movie.

I'll definetly work towards that look, I dont have barrells but I have 55 lb cement blocks, and i have a bench, Any idea what his measurements were like his chest size and arm size?

Not sure what the measurements for his chest and arms were. His boydweight went up and down judging by a lot of his movie appearances. The biggest Ive seen him is in the Bloodsport knock off Bloofight(1989), were he plays Chong Lee instead of Chong Li.

He built up a lot of size for a smaller guy, and you can see the progression from his early Shaw Brother roles to his later stuff. It didn't happen over night and he must have put a lot of hours in.

You don't need a oil barrel to do what he did in the movie. He was performing an olympic press, only for film he swapped a weightifting bar for a barrell. You need good tehcnique and lot of practice to to do this excercise, its not just about strength alone. Sure Bolo is still involved with the powerlifitng/weightlifitng organizations in Hong Kong, but don't quote me on that.

Bolo keeps an eye on Jean Claude Van Dammes form during a workout late last year.

David Yeung, performs a very impressive and alternative style of chin ups, using only just two fingers on each hand, with his legs fully extended.
