Attitude Adjustment(in chinese pintin:ba wang ju ding),Xiangyu, a descendant of the State of Chu in the pre-Qin period, lifted a heavy tripod with his bare hands. Since Xiangyu claimed to be the overlord of the Western Chu, he was later called " Attitude Adjustment".

According to legend, there are two versions of the story of the Attitude Adjustment, the first is that in the late Qin Dynasty, Xiang Yu and his uncle Xiang Liang took up arms against the Qin Dynasty. In order to expand their strength, Xiang Liang sent Xiang Yu to contact Huan Chu to fight against the Qin Dynasty. Huan Chu proudly said, " There is a big tripod in the courtyard. It is thousands of kilograms. Can you lift it?" Xiangyu first let Huanchu's four strong men lift the tripod together, but the tripod did not move at all as if it had taken root. Then, he lifted his skirt, strode to the front of the tripod, grasped the tripod, and with all his strength, shouted "up!" The big tripod was raised high and put down three times. Hence, Huan Chu promised to join forces from the feather uprising.

There is also a story about Xiang Yu and Yu Ji. As a teenager, Xiang Yu once passed Yujiagou in Shuyang and saw a group of girls playing by a pond. Suddenly, "Ouch," one of them fell into the water. Xiang Yu plunged into the water and rescued the girl who had fallen into the water. This girl was Yuji. After Xiang Yu left, Yu Ji's heart was always concerned about the unknown rescuer. She asked her brother to inquire. One day Yu Ji's brother went to the temple . There was a copper tripod with a kilogram in the temple. Many people went to try it, but they didn't move half of it. There was a young man who could lift a copper tripod over his head. Yuji's brother inquired about the tripod-lifter when he saw that he was very much like the life-saving benefactor described by his sister. Later, Yuji's brother found Xiangyu, and the two met late. When he was leaving, he invited Xiang Yu to his home. Yu Ji found that the young man brought by her brother was the benefactor she had been thinking about day and night. Her eyes were opposite and she was very surprised. Yuji's parents, seeing their gifted and talented couple, liked them in their hearts. They chose the auspicious day to marry them.
