An aerodynamic suit? You can get a wet suit at Champs. It's better than Aerodynamic...it's hydrodynamic. Extra dynamic.

The leg weights, also available at Champs and other fine sporting goods stores.

http://www.inch-aweigh.com/fitness/w...le_weights.htm

They aren't orange, though, and that maximum weight they come with is 20 pounds. They're almost entirely useless. If you tie them on hard enough so that they don't slip all the time when you're running and jumping, you constrict the blood flow to your feet.

And yes, Rock shows up in the manga afterwards.

Hmm.. those weights probably weigh ohh... a few hundred pounds, but yes they are the orange things around his ankles after he unties them they kinda look like gold bars only grey. And if I can remember correctly he also has wieghts around his wrist. Rock Lee is one strong dude!

Hmmm word of advise, don't buy weights if you want to train martial arts with them on. By using weights to train, you start to build up water in your knees and your more prone to knee injuries.

I wear the weights but only while I'm out to school or work, and I only walk around with them.

I think he means stronger like how much weights can he lift. In which case, he probably is stronger.

You know, what I've been thinking is, that if Lee's character really is a tribute to Bruce Lee type thing, than him getting injured makes sense. Bruce Lee was also injured very badly, and no one said he would ever be able to fight again, but he came back and had an amazing career. So based on that, I assume Lee will come back and kick some butt...but than die at a young age. :-p

I think Rock Lee is gonna be there till the end. Or atleast come back for a bit, because he is too popular of a character for them to just kill him off.
