My husband and I are watching the pay per view boxing. It led to a discussion about the Rocky films and then about Bruce Lee fights in his films.

We have had a discussion regarding the physique of the two men.

I am adamant that Bruce Lee had a better body than Sylvester Stallone; my husband says he was 'skinny and scrawny' and would choose to have a body like Rocky.

Am I being unreasonable to be absolutely adamamnt that Bruce Lee had a better body than Sly?

Bloody hell... 'Adamant'. Managed to get it wrong twice.

I would much prefer Bruce Lee.

Bruce Lee is wiry and fucking Rock Hard.

Sly Stallone is a mumbling tosser.

Your DH hasn't got a leg to stand on.

You could take him on, easy (were it to come to blows).

DH getting all antsy noo saying he was talking about 'body' only. I absolutely think we should look at the whole package.

Bruce Lee would wipe the floor with Rocky - and you could have a better conversation with him. Sylvester mumbles incoherently a lot of the time. Bruce's command of the English language was far superior.

Bruce Lee was HOT and well, Sly is NOT!

bodywise I would still pick Bruce Lee.. real muscle and not the Stallone steroid pumped body builder type of physique..

BegoniaBampot Sun 26-May-13 00:02:17

I hate that pumped up Chippendale look. A nice in proportion, naturally athletic build any day. Swimmers have lovely bodies!

Led would kick stall ones arse.

Muscle bound meatheads can lift big weights but have no functional strength.

I do weights and martial arts every day and Stallone isn't in good knick, he is a body builder, not built for strength speed or power.

So. I. Win.grin

Not many people are as fit as Bruce Lee was he pushed himself to the absolute extremes an amazing man and he was very intelligent too and very very
good looking

Stallone is just pumped up, in real life he is much smaller than you think he would be with a big head

AgentZigzag Sun 26-May-13 01:35:43

I've just realised I was thinking about Jackie Chan rather than BL grin

But what I said still applies.

I actually think Stallone is (well, was) hot. But Bruce Lee could have kicked his ass.

I like both their bodies.

Well, Bruce Lee is dead, so Sly has that point in his favour....

HollyBerryBush Sun 26-May-13 08:22:05

I liked Adam Ant - just to spin the thread on its axis grin

I ended up googling 'adamant' because I was obsessed that I had spelled it wrong; got some ace information on Adam Ant grin
