One Punch Man is a popular anime featuring the superhuman Saitama, who can destroy any foe with one punch. Great show! I highly recommend it. The true origin of Saitama’s power is unknown, but Saitama claims all he did was exercise every day. His workout consists of 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats, and a 10km run. Starting today, I will follow Saitama’s regiment for 30 days and see what happens. I don’t expect superhuman strength or endurance, but I’m curious to see the results.
Of course, I’ll make some minor adjustments to avoid injury. A 10km every day is terrible on your knees. Not to mention, I definitely can’t run that long at one time. So let’s just forget about that part of the workout and focus on the calisthenics. Additionally, I don’t want to hurt myself by never taking breaks. I’ll take as few breaks as I need, but I’m not looking for an injury.
Right then. Starting weight: 135 lbs.
So, Day 1’s workout is complete. Sit ups went fairly well, but I needed to split the squats into two sets, and the push ups were killer. Took several sets to get all 100 push ups. Hopefully, I’ll improve. One thing’s for sure, though: tomorrow is going to hurt. Hooray!
