Forearms of Steel

In order to improve his gripping and punching power, Lee became an avid devotee of forearm training, While many champion bodybuilders shy away from direct forearm training, Lee made it a point to train his forearms daily. "He was a forearm fanatic," laughs Linda in retrospect. "If ever any bodybuilder -- such as Bill Pearl -- came out with a forearm course, Bruce would have to get it."


Why would Bruce Lee train DAILY his forearms? Because he didn't know much about Endurance Training and how to design a schedule? Or because there's really a point to training some parts of the body EVERYDAY?

This has to be put into context.I can't claim to know exactly how Bruce Lee trained but i have read articles about how he used to carry a ball round with him to squeeze to work on his grip.This could be classed as daily training of some kind but it isn't a workout as most people know it.

Certainly a possibility.If you read Arnold Schwarzenegger's Encylopedia of Modern Bodybuilding there is lots of information which is now deemed incorrect such as the section on steroids and spot reduction(Arnold himself now admits this).Some very gifted individuals can get away with things average trainees couldn't.
For example,Arnold Schwarzenegger trained 6 days per week with a 2 day split.That means he's training each body part 3 times per week.Even todays pro bodybuilders say that would be too much for them.

I think the only point is how productive your training is,i.e-training time compared to results achieved.
This is the case whether you train once per day or once per week.
