Anime Strong

100 push ups, 100 squat, 100 sit-ups & a 10k run, everyday for 3 years.

^^ That is what Saitama did to become the worlds strongest man, if only it was that easy in real life.

In most anime shows you’ll find that training is consistent, with purpose and drive.

Now training daily is something you can indeed do, either by picking one movement per day or setting up some sort of rotating split, all are viable however I’m going to give you a challenge and only the most committed and willing will be able to do it.

You’ll have 7 main movements to practice daily (pick one or two of them).

You will never do them to fatigue, the aim is to get better with every set, stronger with every rep and then once ever 10th session of the given movement you go all out and either hit a new max effort, top end weight, total about of reps or time under tension.

There is then the additional option of doing a sport, martial art or some form of fun hobby/endeavour with the rest of your time.

1 – Hand Balancing (2 hands, single hand etc)
2 – Rope Climbing
3 – Sprinting
4 – Deadlift
5 – Pistol Squats
6 – Movement Flows (crawling, climbing, loaded carries, jump sequences etc)
7 – Explosively Throwing

You’d simply pick one or two of the above to practice each day (two is my choice).

Okay, now for the interesting bit, how to program it all, you will have three options.

1 – Do 30-90min once per day – vary the reps/time/distance etc every set
2 – Multiple 10min sessions during the day (minimum of 3)
3 – Perform one set of say no more than 2-3reps for 2-3sets (or 2-3 sets of  10-30 seconds for balances/carries/flows etc) every hour you’re awake.

Easy enough to do, however the trick is to be consistent, patient and see each day/movement as practice, plus just have some fun with it.

Try it for 100 days if you feel that being anime strong is a title you’d not mind having.
