Ashita no Joe- Joe’s Basic Training
Ashita no Joe is a manga about a trouble-making, brawler of a kid. He really likes to fight and he LOVES to cause trouble. Along the way, an old, broken down boxer tries to take him under his wing and train him. Unfortunately, things don’t go exactly as the old man plans. Check it out, it’s worth a look.
This workout is based on the first training regimen given to Joe… whether or not he actually did this workout or just screwed around the whole time is up for debate, but (nevertheless) here’s the workout.
Joe’s Basic Training
- 3 Mile Run
- Jump Rope 3,000 times
- 100 Sit-ups
- 3 x 3 Minutes Heavy Bag Work
- 3 x 3 Minutes Mitt Work
- This is a very simple workout, but it’s supposed to be. It’s going to focus on your cardiovascular and muscular endurance, while building your midsection for taking punches and starting the skill work for boxing.
- The run is a steady pace run.
- You should try to do all 3,000 without stopping.
