After reading about Gama's routines and how he used them to develop his renown strength for wrestling, Lee soon integrated them into his own practise. Lee performed exercises like the cat stretch and the squat in his training. Hasli, a 100 kg training disc with a doughnut form that he used for pushups and squats, is now kept at the National Institute of Sports (NIS) Museum in Patiala, India. A stone weighing 1200 kg is on display at the Baroda Museum in Sayajibaug as a reminder of the renowned wrestler's strength. Gama hoisted this stone on December 23, 1902, while visiting Baroda for a wrestling match.
