Holyland- Kamishiro Yuu’s Basic Training
Holyland is a pretty cool manga. It’s about a kid who tries to find a place in the world for himself by roaming the streets at night. However, in order to do so, he has to be strong enough to defend himself from thugs and gangsters. His determination leads him to inadvertently become the “Thug Hunter,” as he uses the basic skill he acquired through reading a boxing book and countless hours of practice, to make sure he can stay in his “Holyland.”
- Alternatively, you can do the Jab-Cross combination from the beginning, so you don’t get in the habit of just throwing a single punch. It’s still only 1,000 punches per level, so count appropriately.
- Essentially, on each level, you do a 1,000 punches per level. That may seem like a lot, and it is, but remember that you have all day and the you are starting at level 1. You can do them in sets of 20, 50, 100, or whatever. As long as you get them done, it doesn’t matter. You won’t be doing this workout every day, it should be interspersed throughout your schedule in between the other workouts.
- You may be able to complete Levels 1 and 2 in this first three attempts, but after that, you may have some difficulty with the higher number of reps. Also, you shouldn’t start your punches until after you’ve completed your push-ups for the day. This workout may seem a little boring, but once you get into a rhythm, you’ll find it’s very meditative.
