Not only is Bulma significantly heavier than eight pounds, but the distance is a lot farther too, and Goku had zero strain.

However, Goku is able to modify his Jan-Ken technique to outsmart Jackie by shouting the name of the opposite technique before the attack, tricking Jackie into defending against the wrong move and successfully hitting him (might sound easy, but the act of shouting your technique before doing it really is vital in most shonen martial arts, for whatever reason).
