How To Practice Saitama’s Exercise Routine? – An Expert’s POV
When you seriously want to adopt the superhuman training course, you need the supervision of an expert trainer. Nothing to worry, I will describe you and make you understand everything.
Being a huge fan of manga series and Saitama, I’ve started following his workouts since the early days of its release.
I still remember how difficult it was for me to repeat the exercises on a regular basis. I realized that I had to break the entire course into multiple sets. Thereafter, I took at most three months to get accustomed to the training course.
Today, I’m going to share the exact methods what I did follow in the beginning. If you understand them carefully and start practicing it, you can become the next Saitama.
Let’s start with the basic training course for One Punch Man workout routine-
- On day one, you must go with 5×5 push-ups, 5×5 sit-ups and 5×5 squats
5×5 means 25 pushups/sit-ups/squats in five intervals. Take 2 – 3 minutes as a standard interval before starting the next set.
- Follow the same routine for the next two days and feel the difference
- On day four, you can increase the number of pushups, sit-ups and so on
- Keep the set constant at every stage, it becomes 5×7 push-ups, 5×7 sit-ups, 5×7 squats
- Practice the same (5×7 = 35) for the next three days
This ends your first-week training. And, the result says- you have done 35 push-ups, 35 sit-ups and 35 squats on a single day.
To maintain your health better, you must follow a healthy and nutritious diet.
- On day eight, start with the same 5×7 sets each followed by 1 km running (optional)
- Keep the strategy for the next two days
- On day eleven, go with 5×10 push-ups, 5×10 sit-ups and 5×10 squats and 1 km running
- Maintain a good diet plan and follow this for the next three days
The second week is finished and you have reached 5×10 = 50 and 1 km running. So, don’t lose your focus, practice with passion and achieve your goal.
- On day fifteen, start with 5×10 sets each followed by 2km running for two days
- On day seventeen, follow 5×11 sets and 2 km running
- Maintain this for the next three days
- On day twenty-one, make it 5×13 sets and 3 km running
It ends your third week. Now, you have achieved 5×13 = 65 sets and 3 km running. However, you can keep your running distance constant to 1 km for at least three weeks and even more.
- On day twenty-two, make it count 5×14 sets and 3 km running
- Keep this strategy for the next five days and increase one km running in the third day
- On day twenty-eight, go with 5×16 sets and 4 km running
At the end of the fourth week, you have reached 5×16 = 80 sets and 4 km running.
If you follow the same pattern, you can reach 5×20 = 100 sets in the following weeks. And, it is advised to increase the running distance gradually to reach 10 km.
Some of my practitioners achieve 10 km running at the end of their eighth week. So, there is nothing to hurry. In other words, your prime focus should be on maintaining your fitness.
With this approach, you can definitely make 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and 10 km running in two-three months.
One Punch Man Workout Routine – A Valuable Tip
As of now, it is cleared out that Saitama undergoes a serious change in his daily routine to achieve the feat of ‘One Punch Man’. Taking inspiration from the character, it is advised that you have to avoid air conditioner.
Yes, you got it right. Saitama never uses air conditioning system whether it is summer or winter season. Even after his hard One Punch Man training routine, he won’t rely on the same.
On a serious note, you have to say ‘NO’ to air conditioning system and follow this character. If you really want to become fit, there’s nothing that can stop you.
Why Do Some People say ‘NO’ To OPM Training? – You Must Know This
On a positive note, there are many individuals started OPM training. In its another side, it has been revealed that some say ‘NO’ to the routine.
According to a few groups of people, the biggest threat of practicing this training is- you won’t get the desired result even after hard work. The webcomic says- the training is focused on building upper body, core and lower section of the body.
Taking this into account, the practice of OPM pushups will only develop chest muscles. So, there is a need for exercise that can develop back muscles too. Or else, it may create a cascading (negative) effect on the body of the practitioner.
No doubt, you become stronger but it may not cultivate what you want.
You must know that Saitama is a fictional character. When you want to practice his OPM training in real, you need expert’s guidance.
With this approach, you can remove the issues related to anything and become fit. Also, they help you in listing the ideal diet for maintaining your strength.
However, I have also mentioned some diets that could be effective if you consume them.
