How the son of BOLO YEUNG tried to surpass his father

Reading time: 4 minutes

Since then Bolo Yeung has appeared in countless martial arts movies, to date, also working on two movies with “The Muscles from Brussels” Jean-Claude Van Damme in Bloodsport and Double Impact.

Now Bolo still looks great and still regularly trains at his local gym and, as probably you already know, Martial Arts and Bodybuilding are integral parts of his life and career.

Bolo has two sons: Danny and David Yeung, and a daughter Debbra.

David is a former bodybuilding champion and he is now a strength trainer for MMA athletes. When he was a boy, he appeared in Alex Law’s “Painted Faces”, the story of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and their fellow Chinese Opera students but now David has a great potential to become a new action star.

David Yen was born in 1974 in Hong Kong and, at the age of 4, he started to study martial arts. Bolo Ian wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a great athlete. At the age of 7, David was enrolled in several martial arts schools at once and, at the age of 13, bodybuilding is added to fights. Everything is like Bolo Ian’s in his youth, only much earlier, which means more effective. David did not have good strength endurance: a couple of times he was injured on sparring. Therefore, it was decided to strengthen the body with strength training with iron. The guy is very interested in bodybuilding. For the first time in the competition, he performed at the age of 14.

His father just took him to the competition and he decided to go on stage. It was originally planned to make a form like Bruce Lee or like Sylvester Stallone. But the guy grew by leaps and bounds. At 23, with an average height, he weighed 90 kilograms. The security forces were also in place. David squatted 184 kg and could squeeze a platform weighing 544 kg with his feet. Once, on a dare, he performed a leg press with a weight of 362 kg for 90 repetitions.

David competed in various competitions until the age of 28. He became very close friends with a professional bodybuilder Flex Wheeler. They trained together, talked a lot and prepared for the competition. But in 2003, David had to end his bodybuilding career due to low back and knee injuries. Despite many victories in various tournaments, he never became a professional.

After completing his bodybuilding career, David Yen lost 30 kg of weight. This is a great psychological trauma for an athlete who has been swinging for 15 years. But thanks to the support of friends, he coped. Now David weighs 72 kg and works as a coach. Trains both beginners and professionals. Works with professional fighters and American footballers. The workouts are strong in nature, increasing their functionality and explosive strength. David runs two times a day and trains with iron.

Although training is of a strong nature, the weights are not large. More preference goes to the development of strength endurance. David’s diet is unremarkable, except for the abundance of carbohydrates just before the workout. Perhaps this is due to the rapid metabolism. David Yen has always wanted to be famous like his father but, unfortunately, his sports career was not long and there were only one-time roles in the cinema. But David adapted to modern realities and became a good coach in demand.

I learned more new stuff on this losing weight issue. A single issue is that good nutrition is highly vital any time dieting. A huge reduction in junk food, sugary ingredients, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and white colored flour products could possibly be necessary. Holding wastes harmful bacteria, and poisons may prevent targets for fat-loss. While a number of drugs for the short term solve the problem, the horrible side effects usually are not worth it, and in addition they never give more than a short-lived solution. It can be a known proven fact that 95 of dietary fads fail. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this blog.
