Is Tony Jaa the Next Bruce Lee?

December 4, 2007

An article on Tony Jaa…Muay Thai fighter and new martial arts action star? Sorry guys I know this seems a little off topic, but it will make sense in a second. I am a big fan of implementing martial arts strategies into generating power and maximizing tension. The article I was planning to write tonight was going to be called “Gain Strength and Muscle Definition With Light Weights by Emphasizing Tension”. This is a method of getting the density, strength and muscle tone benefits of heavy weights, while lifting light (it is a technical article and you will get a lot out of it). I’ll write that article within the next 2-3 days…I promise! I got side-tracked a bit on Youtube…it happens!

Here’s Tony Jaa practicing moves for the movie Ong-Bak. No special effects here…

[I wouldn’t want to be an extra in this film!]

Why I’m Talking About Tony Jaa?

Tony Jaa is a ridiculously athletic Muay Thai fighter that does the most impressive physical feats that I have ever seen. Think of a cross between Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and an Olympic gymnast.

Here is an out-take of a movie called Ong Bak: Muay Thai Warrior. This is him practicing some of the fighting scenes for the movie. The crazy part is that no wires or special effects were used here. Seriously…on Youtube, I saw him do this live on stage on a Korean talk show. He is amazing athlete!

What is Muay Thai?

Muay Thai is a form of martial arts that originated in Thailand. One of the thing that separates it from many other forms of martial arts is that it focuses heavily on striking with elbows and knees . There are different types of techniques within Muay Thai and Muay Boran is what Tony Jaa emphasizes in the movie Ong Bak. Supposedly this form of Muay Thai teaches blows from the knees and elbows that have the ability to kill the opponent. It originates over 2,000 years ago from Southeast Asia where it was believed to have been taught to the military.

So What Does This Have to Do With Getting Fit?

I’m a big believer in practicing the ability to increase force and muscle tension without increasing the size of the muscle. Basically if you can get stronger without getting bigger, you will display an increase muscle definition. Want to see a man who was ripped to shreds without even trying? Take a look at Bruce Lee! Seriously, “generating tension” is the best path to permanent muscle tone. Lifting light weights for high reps with zero regard to tension creates a “temporary pump”…yeah, you will look great for an hour or two with the pump, but after the pump is gone you will look soft.

Modern Fitness is in Its Infancy Compared to Martial Arts!

Martial arts has been around for thousands of years! Some people trace it to around the time Sun Tzu wrote the Art of War in 350 B.C. It is hard to trace the origins of lifting weights and cardio. Many people call Eugene Sandow the “Father of Modern Bodybuilding”. He was born in Prussia (Russsia) in 1867. Obviously people exercised before then, but he was one of the people who organized a methodology around this type of fitness. Aerobics exercise and cardio wasn’t mastered until Kenneth H. Cooper wrote “Aerobics” in 1968! Really, the type of exercising we are doing now is really in its infancy.

We Have a Long Way To Go!

I know we all have tons to learn about getting in peak condition…myself included. We are just beginning to figure out how to get in optimum condition. In the 50’s people thought they could lose weight by putting a belt around their mid section or butt and a machine would shake that belt at a fast rate. They believed that the machine would shake that fat loose off of the target area. The 50’s weren’t that long ago. Even thing we believed in the 80’s are getting proven wrong. We are getting better, but still have tons to learn!

Apply Proven Principles in Other Disciplines

Do you think that a person who could generate enough power to put their fist through a brick teach you something about getting stronger on the bench press? What about a Bruce Lee’s famous “one inch punch” that generated enough force in one inch to throw his opponent across the ring! And what about Bruce Lee’s six pack abs? Seriously…we would be crazy to ignore some of these strategies that have been mastered for over 1,000 years!

We Got Sidetracked By Modern Bodybuilding

I think that modern bodybuilding (1970-present) is teaching people bad habits. Bodybuilding is all about “tearing down the muscle”, “eating and resting to repair the muscle”, “and allowing that muscle to get bigger over time”. I don’t like the idea of having my muscles in a “damaged state” while I’m away from the gym. I did a bodybuilding routine for close to 10 years and I felt worn out during my time away from the gym. This isn’t a high quality of life…sorry…it really isn’t. Even worse was my constant quest for the next feeding of protein. I’m glad I came to my senses!

So Back to Tony Jaa!

Well enough of my rant…LOL! Tony Jaa is a really rare action star. I have been a huge fan of the Muay Thai fighting style for years and I’m glad he is giving it some mainstream attention. I’m also a huge fan of Thai food and women from Thailand…sorry, I had to say it! The women in Thailand age better than any women I have ever seen. You rarely see any overweight women from Thailand as well. Some of you guys and girls in Thailand need to give a “shout out”. I just looked at my website stats as far as what part of the world the largest number of readers come from. You are number 34 out of 167! You are right behind Croatia…you can catch them…LOL!

Rusty!

I looooovvvvveeee Tony Jaa! He is one of the most amazing fighters I have ever seen. The stunts he does in his movies are absolutely incredible. I had never seen Muay Thai before I saw “Ong-Bak,” and I must say about that movie… the acting was AWFUL, but the action was SO worth it. I felt similarly about The Protector as well.

Anyway… thank you for the clips to make my day!

Maria December 4, 2007 at 3:10 pm

Rusty, I’m just curious, what about Estonia, what number in the stats are we?

And just thought I’d let you know, I happen to be acquainted with the girl whose picture you posted in the water retention article, and she was very much pleased when I passed the link on to her 😉

Venkat December 4, 2007 at 3:12 pm

Rusty,
What is your take on isometric exercises? Have you tried them?

G. December 4, 2007 at 4:17 pm

Hi Rusty,

you have me waiting with anticipation on that next post about muscle tension/definition with lighter weights.

I too had been lifting heavy for years with low reps etc, and although i did build muscle and gain strength,i was always “sore” and not feeling 100%.Unlike that feeling you get when you do cardio,which leaves you energized and feeling awesome(endorphins).

Furthermore,all that heavy lifting has now paid its price on my lower back and certain joints…..no thanx.

I too am glad i came to my senses and now aspire to achieving that lean,athletic Tyler Durden look or David Beckham look.

Ciao for now,
G.

Jennifer December 4, 2007 at 8:05 pm

I know my Taekwon-Do practice is bringing about some changes in my body…and I am in pretty good shape to begin with, so if I notice changes already that is some good stuff right there!! I don’t know if you ever watched this pretty bad movie called Dead or Alive (DOA), based on the video game. One of the hot chicks in the movie that plays a master thief and spy practices Muay Thai fighting and has since she was a kid. I know this little piece of info because I’m a geek and watch the “Special Features” of movies, particularly this one because I knew they would be discussing their extensive training to look hot on the screen! Just goes to show that fighting with elbows and knees is not only practical but also produces some sexy looking bodies.

By the way, I am really looking forward to your article about using light weights and tension to gain strength article as I hate lifting heavy.

admin December 4, 2007 at 9:36 pm

Zumi,

You are welcome! I’m glad I made your day. May it continue to be great!

Maria,

Estonia is number 19 out of 167 countries! The number one city for visitors from Estonia is Tallinn and Parnu is second. Tell your friend that she is amazing and I almost put her picture up as my banner when I created this site. Is she from Estonia? She is absolutely beautiful and if that is any indicator of the women in Estonia…I need to add that to my list of places to visit! What a small world!

Here is a link to that picture again…what an amazing photo!
Rusty’s New Client…LOL!

Venkat,

I like isometrics…my next article will touch on them a bit.

G,

The only downside of building a site like this and teaching guys what women like is that we will have more competition. Maybe I should sabotage guys and tell them that women love guys that are built like professional wrestlers…then we could clean up in the dating scene…LOL!

Jennifer,

The most attractive people in my opinion are great looking geeks. Who wants to hang out with a stuffy woman who acts serious -or- an amazing looking guy that just wants to talk about the stock market and his job, etc? I like fit women who dress in hip clothes, but aren’t afraid to do corny things.

Maybe my blog subtitle should say “Get Slim and Toned While Geeking Out!”. You gotta have fun in life!

momoyman December 5, 2007 at 2:06 am

here’s someone i think is also ripped to the bones, he’s Manny “The Pacman” Pacquiao. A boxing pound for pound world champion. and i’ve heard that his workout routine has become one of the most admired and followed by trainers and fellow boxers. here’s a video tribute from youtube, critics consider it one of the best trilogy battles in the history of boxing.

momoyman December 5, 2007 at 3:05 am
Maria December 5, 2007 at 8:12 am

Rusty,

That’s right, the girl is from Tallinn actually and I think she might be a good example of what a lot of local women look like, mainly because being extremely slim is considered the most attractive here. She is Russian though (so am I and the rest of the 30% of the nation).

Speaking of weightlifting, Rusty, what’s your take on BodyPump classes? Here in Estonia it has become HUGE lately. I’ve been doing it since September with some great results (got my long forgotten 90-60-90 measurements back) and would probably recommend it to anyone as a fun alternative to lifting weights in the gym.

Helder December 5, 2007 at 11:00 am

Hi Rusty, great post, i’ve practiced Muay Thai myself a few years ago and it’s a fantastic sport/martial art to get you fit and for self defense. I didn’t know this guy, Tony Jaa but, his simply amazing.

Jason December 5, 2007 at 2:09 pm

I wanted as k you about your ab routine.. U say all u do is planks I thought u would have to do crunches or leg raise to build muscle I thought planks would just make abs flat and not defined? By the way i have a low body fat i am just trying to find the right workout

Love the site rustty!

John December 5, 2007 at 7:18 pm

Hey Rusty, thanks for another great article.

I have a question, though. I am 5’9 and 115 lbs. I’m really, really skinny, and would like to get fit (I’m thinking of 160 lbs as an ideal weight) but it’s really hard for me to gain weight/muscle. I’m an ectomorph and always have been. Most of your stuff is applicable to people with regular builds or people of average weight or above average weight, but rarely targeted towards people who are ridiculously skinny that have trouble packing on the weight/muscle. What do you recommend for us skinny dudes?

Jeff December 5, 2007 at 8:50 pm

I can’t wait to read more about developing muscle tone and strength with light weights. Nothing worse than injuries and setbacks. Oh yea that Tony Jaa dude is pretty bad ass!

admin December 6, 2007 at 1:38 am

Moymoyman,

Nice video…yeah that guy looks really bad-ass. He is well proportioned and toned…plus it looks like he throws a serious punch.

Maria,

See…I do need to visit that area of the world. I prefer skinny girls over the “new fad” we have going in the U.S…where they are telling girls to get big butts. I just don’t like excessive body fat on a woman. I a leaner look with a slim waist a flat stomach.

BodyPump is certainly one way to get lean and toned. The thing I don’t like about it is that you are following along and doing movements along with an instructor…and using one barbell for a number of lifts (I can do bent over rows with close to 200 pounds, but typically don’t go much over 100 for barbell curls…so things like that would be an issue). That being said…classes like this are a GREAT way to push past your pain barrier and get great results. Many times you don’t “feel” like pushing hard and an instructor can get more out of you. I’m pretty open-minded to different approaches and although I haven’t done BodyPump personally, I bet a lot of people would get good results from this type of workout. I’m all about results…if it is working for you by all means keep at it!

We have an extremely hip Russian techno club in Seattle called “Contour”. Great tunes and tons of attractive girls. Good stuff!

Jason,

Six packs abs is more of a result of having the ability to contract your ab muscles hard and less about the actual lift. The reason boxers have incredible abs is that they tighten and clinch their abs on a regular basis to prepare for an incoming body shot. Boxers develop a strong “mind-to-muscle” link over time and thus their abs are defined. Feel free to do crunches for a while or leg lifts if you don’t have the ability the flex your abs really hard. Once you develop a decent mind to muscle link in your abs, switch over to just doing planks and Bruce Lee’s “Breath of Dragon” exercise. Hope that helps!

John,

For true hard gainers that want to pack on muscle, I would recommend a more traditional bodybuilding workout and eating approach (see I’m not totally against bodybuilding…LOL). If you don’t mind spending $20, pick up the book “Brawn” by Stuart McRobert. I think he has a new version for around $30 as well. You can get it at Amazon…it is a great book for extreme hard gainer’s like yourself. In my opinion…the best info out there.

For free info…go to bodybuilding.com click to go to their “Supersite” and then enter “hardgainer” into the search box. You will get tons of free info about how you should approach lifting and eating. Note: It is WAY different than the stuff I recommend on this site.

Jeff,

Yeah…you will like the post I write about strength training and muscle tone (way different than mainstream approaches). With a full understanding of strength training you will increase your ability to display permanent muscle tone. This will be one of my better articles…I was going to wait to put it in a book, but I decided to give it away for free instead.

I appreciate you guys and your comments!

KK December 18, 2007 at 3:48 pm

I am so happy to find a site like this, a site that is geared more towards creating an attractive body than a bulky body. However, I have one question. If you were to follow a conventional bulking program and you are skinny to begin with, couldn’t you just follow that program and stop when you get “big enough.” Or will you not get the same results?

admin December 18, 2007 at 4:19 pm

KK,

If you are really skinny, a typical bodybuilding routine is great for the short term. What happens is that guys often get caught in a trap of never feeling big enough.

By all means, a bodybuilding routine isn’t a bad way to go for 6-12 months if you are exceptionally skinny. Once you add 10-20 pounds it is best to change it up and lift like I talk about on this site.

Welcome Aboard Buddy!

Rusty

KK December 18, 2007 at 4:47 pm

That’s good to know. I’m one of those people who like a balance in things if you will. “Not too little and not too big” is what my motto is and I think I have a pretty good idea of what to shoot for in terms of size.

I must say that it is nice that you are so active in this site. You answered my question really fast. So thats good.

Another question I have is training for women. If a girl were to come up to me asking for advice on losing weight or gaining weight would I suggest the same kinds of bodybuilding/fat loss programs? I know a lot of women just want to look feminine, soft, definitely a flat tummy I’m sure. And I certainly know that most men prefer a much softer look to their women as well.

Frankly, the women on most bodybuilding forums seem to overdo it with the muscle building and fat loss(which is fine if that is their goal). The training regimens and diets they use would lead me to believe that one would get a body like them. However, I doubt that would be the look that any girl friend of mine would shoot for. What would you suggest?

admin December 18, 2007 at 11:26 pm

KK,

Yeah…I’m not a fan of female bodybuilding at all, or anything close to that look! The advice I would give to women wanting to looked toned yet feminine would be to really hit cardio hard and seriously stay away from anything that “pumps up” the muscle.

A low volume of lifting and lots of cardio on an empty stomach. Basically the same thing I recommend for guys. The main difference is that guys who want to get extremely defined will want to get their bodyfat lower and lift heavier weights than women will want to.

If women do most of their lifting and cardio with a daily calorie deficit, they won’t gain excess muscle mass. Avoiding “the pump” is also a good idea as this type of lifting tends to increase muscle mass (that is why bodybuilders aim for the pump and your girlfriend should not).

Hope that makes sense,

Rusty

Note: I don’t want any female bodybuilders angry with me, but my blog isn’t focused on bodybuilding.

FightGirl April 1, 2008 at 7:22 pm

Great article. I’m all about getting lean and strong, WITHOUT getting big. I like looking like a girl! Muay Thai is pretty high intensity from start to finish. My goals have never been to be a bodybuilder (what most people think when I say Olympic lifts- which I also have gotten into the past few months). My goals are athletic related. Some of the strongest female lifters in the world are these tiny Asian girls (size 2-4!). It just goes to show you can train for strength without being huge. Strength in a tiny package, hoping it will make my strikes and kicks stronger 🙂

As for bodybuilder’s, their goals are symmetry. They’re getting rated by judges, so everything has to be perfectly proportioned. And honestly, a lot of them take a lot of supplements (natural and not so unnatural) to gain the muscle they do. The female body has enough estrogen in it to prohibit large muscle gain, so I don’t think a lot of women have to worry about getting “the bodybuilder” look when they train with weights. Not trying to push any buttons, just from my experience what I’ve noticed.

My goals are to be a good athlete (like Ori says, a warrior) and I LOVE all your articles focusing on training and how you’ve pinpointed the difference between just working out (for looks) and being a good athlete. I want to gain strength and speed, without size so I can kick butt in anything I choose to do. Can’t wait to read more articles on the subject.

Oh! That Tony Jaa video was awesome! Those flying knees are killer on your glutes. I don’t get as far off the ground as Tony does. 🙂 yet…

FightGirl

admin April 2, 2008 at 9:57 pm

FightGirl,

Tony Jaa is amazing for sure. I like the Olympic lifts. They are ballistic in nature and don’t contribute to mass. You sound like you have a great idea on how to achieve the look you are after…and kick a little bit of butt in the process!

Chris B June 2, 2008 at 12:37 pm

Muai Thai is a fantastic martial art, and like all martial arts, a great way to get fit if you work on the basics – kicking and punching repeatedly and its worked great for the missus. Im speaking from experience, I have studied Muai Thai before, its pretty simple, although I am an exponent of Shaolin, which all martial arts derive from. My sole aim is balance between strength, speed, agility and finally appearance, and shaolin is complete here. We are light years behind out here in the west, the amount of times I hear my mates talk about ‘getting big’, ‘lifting heavy’, despite the fact they can’t touch their toes, move about as quick as arnold schwarnegger and have about as much punching power as my 5 week old godson. So as I say – there is a balance to be found, and you wont see anyone more balanced than a shaolin monk, they are phenomenal athletes. Try the horse stance for 6 weeks daily, watch your balance reach incredible levels, develop unbelievable strength in your legs, without the bulk a squat rack will give you. And then there’s their internal systems…like Chi Kung. Check it out mate and see what you think.

Chris B June 2, 2008 at 12:45 pm

I should have added, Bruce Lee actually did a fair bit of body building and long distance running, he was always working his abs. The guy massively over trained, although I still havent seen anyone as defined. He could hold 50 kg (over 100 lbs) out infront of him for a few seconds, and do several reps, thats INSANE! He’d just started studying Chi Kung before he died so wouldn’t have seen the benefits.

admin June 2, 2008 at 11:28 pm

Chris,

I love the various martial arts. I am a big fan of Pavel Tsatsouline, who studied Bruce Lee extensively. He teaches many of the martial arts techniques to generate serious power without gaining size.

I was watching a UFC match the other day and some lean and dense guy totally schooled this “puffed up” bodybuilder looking guy. None of the best guys are excessively bulky. The bad-ass guys are “lean and mean”.

Great comments!

Rusty

Odin July 22, 2008 at 7:14 am

I really do want to get that toned Hollywood look but, I’m worried that right now, it wouldn’t look so good since I’m 135lbs/5’7/15%bf. and I don’t want to get too thin. Is it better to gain some mass first or start toning now?

Daniel March 1, 2009 at 2:14 pm

He’s a good showman, no doubt about that. But he is nothing comparing to Bruce Lee. Put Tony in the UFC and he will get his ass kicked. He’s just another clown actor like Jackie Chan, Jean Claude Van Dam and Steven Seagal. Bruce at least is real.

Chris B March 4, 2009 at 10:02 am

Rusty,

Yeah, noticed a couple of your posts on Pavel, interesting stuff.

From my experience isometrics is a big one (you should do something on this mate), namely the horse stance. Back when my grandmaster was very young his master made him stand in the horse stance for (eventually) hours every day, for 6 months before teaching him anything else, it was the same in the shaolin temple before communist China turned it into a tourist attraction.
This exercise is something special, works your core aswell but mainly legs like you wouldn’t believe. You wont get bigger, but you’ll get strong beyond what you thought possible. Your balance will be unmatched.

Agree with Daniel above, infact Tony Jaa does alot of gymnastics for his training. Bruce Lee is still number one.

Lawrence June 24, 2009 at 2:59 am

There is no next Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee changed the world. I don’t think Tony Jaa can do that, but I do think Tony Jaa is going to be the next great action star. That being said, he needs a real good break out movie. Ong Bak 1 was good, but then his next 2 movies kinda sucked.

Mason June 30, 2009 at 6:10 pm

John November 17, 2009 at 1:51 am

Rusty,
I’m not sure exactly what you meant when you said Bruce Lee was ripped without trying. If you meant he didn’t have to work that hard to achieve the look he did then you are dead wrong. Lee worked out harder than almost anyone ever. He would work out for at least a couple hours each day in addition to the hours of martial arts training he did. That man lived to work out and every single muscle in his body was functional. If you meant something else then never mind.

John November 17, 2009 at 1:54 am

Oh, and Mason if you want to know Bruce Lee’s workout routines buy the book The Art of Expressing the Human Body. Excellent read!

I know this thread is old, but I wanted to comment on The Biggest Loser. (Ironically) I’ve caught quite a few recent episodes at my gym where they had 70-526 the largest contestant they have had to date, (who actually won). While I’m in the gym watching these people on that show kill themselves working out, it baffles my mind as to why they 70-528 chose such a method. I’m a big follower of Warrior as well as Eat Stop Eat and a huge fan of Lyle’s RFL. Isn’t diet 99.9% of the problem? Couldn’t they loose just as much or even more weight by simply doing Eat Stop eat or Lyles RFL program? with moderate 70-529 exercise? I also noticed , that most if not all haven’t been able to keep it off 70-536.

George @ Scholarships For Women June 7, 2011 at 6:08 pm

Only one person can measure up to Bruce Lee and that is Chuck Norris.

Razwell November 23, 2011 at 6:35 pm

There is NO EVIDENCE in the scientific literature that dieting and exercising have much impact at all on our body weight in the LONG TERM.

Dr. Jeffrey Friedman , perhaps the foremost authority on obesity in the world, has said so.

Obesity is very poorly understood. Bruce Lee looked the way he did mostly due to his GENETICS.

ibad January 20, 2012 at 7:59 am

i like you tony jaa!
Plz tell me the exercises and gymnastic trick…

Sam November 22, 2012 at 1:45 am

The art of expressing defense and attack is perhaps best illuminated by Ong Bak err, Tony Jaa. Bruce was different and Tony is different too, in their respective martial tapestry. Bruce Lee is still a legend, but as a follower, Tony is remarkably a mirror of the true legend-Lee. However, Tony has a long way to go before the taught overcomes his master. Still said, Tony is the perfect fighter i have ever seen, east or west, after Lee.
