The All-Japan Rookie Champ Workout – Real Anime Training

The All-Japan Rookie Champ Workout

This workout is for the Ippo vs. Sendo match at the All-Japan Rookie Championship. It’s in-fighter vs. in-fighter, but Ippo’s fist is broken, so he can’t hit anything for the entire training period. He made up for it by strengthening his muscles and working on his speed and stamina. Hope you enjoy!

  • For Triangle Push-ups, place your hand under your chest with the index fingers together and the thumbs together in the shape of a triangle or a diamond. Make sure your chest touches your hands as you go down.
  • Make sure your shoulders are square and your feet are together in the One Arm Push-ups
  • One Arm Alternating Cable Press is something you’ll need to do at a gym. It’s essentially a standing one arm bench press using a cable machine. If you don’t have access to one, you may do one arm bench press with dumbbells. Use a weight you can get 30 reps with and increase it as necessary.
  • For the Crab Walk, you’ll be on your hands and feet, with your body facing toward the sky. Don’t let your body sag as you move. Go as fast as you can, because it gets brutal going slow.
  • This is a pretty rough one, so use your own judgment on how much you can do.
  • Added neck work to this workout, as well.

That’s all for today. Until next time, good luck and train hard!
