Whats the best way to achieve this look? I'm pretty skinny (6'1" 150 lbs) and I'm not trying to bulk up. I would like to achieve this "ripped" look that Bruce Lee and most basketball players to a certain extent have. Any links, tips, routines, what to/what not to do, anything, would be appreciated. peace

You are pretty lean, you are skinny for your height and no doubt about it.

Since you are wanting to get lean and not bulky, keep a clean diet.

I recommend cardio and calisthenics...

Bag work is awesome as well.

Plenty of exercise routines listed here to help you, but it also leads to a lean and strict diet.

weights, fast bag work, sprint work are some good ones. weights give u thye ripped effect, depending on how u lift it. ya need 2 do some weights.

Just don't eat for 10 days and you'll look just like Manny.

I Suggested going to the gym and bulking by lefting heavy wieghts. After you think your big enough, stop lifting heavey and start lefting light weights but for for a larger number of reps.. That accompanied by good cardio and proper diet would IMO get you looking like Bruce lee :D

That's funny but I actually did that and my physique was Pac-man like, but I didn't really realize how dangerous it was 'cause I was like consuming about 1,200 or less a day for a certain period. There's nothing more I can add to what's already been mentioned by other members so just keep a clean diet by eating lots of salads and stay away from fat and do lots of supersets and tri - sets if you are into lifting and just keep up w/ your boxing workout if you are a practitioner of the sport and you'll be rip in no time. Again don't do what I did don't let your calorie intake dip the way I did it, be smart and have fun! You might wanna do less cardio since it sounds like you already have a fast metabolism but just need to get that ripped physique.
