If you have ever heard the legend of Bruce Lee's 1" punch - definitely check out this video. It's amazing how he conditioned his mind and his body to produce the amount of power in such a short distance - capable of knocking a large man straight backwards as you see in the video. According to witnesses at another event, Bruce apperantly did this in a ring against someone and sent his opponent flying across the ring.
While it's not chess related, it definitely shows the benefits of a comprehensive training and conditioning regiment. Taking that kind of focus and determination to any passion can only lead to extraordinary results. Plus, it's not about the collapsing global markets which is getting rather depressing to keep hearing about! Enjoy the weekend!
