The 3 sword style master of the Straw Hat Pirates, One of the main members of the Monster Trio, Roronoa Zoro.
The man in a world where fruits can give you God level abilities refused them and became one of the strongest pirates with pure training and effort alone. But realistically would Zoro’s Training work in real life?
Well in today’s episode of Would That Workout we use exercise science and personal training to analyze how effective or detrimental his routine would be to those who attempted it.
Take hold of the area behind your knees with your hands and pull in your abs while tilting your pelvis forward. This will create a c-shaped curve in your spine. Next, raise your arms and press them towards the back of the room in little pulses.
All the while, keep those abs in and the spine curved.
Bring your chest all the way down to the floor, and then back up to where your arms are at a 45-degree angle.
Repeat this move 10 times. Then there’s another step: Maintain your bent arms and all that contraction in your upper body, and simply lift and lower your knees to the ground in six slow, deliberate taps.
Then push back up into your plank or half plank and do the whole routine again. This time, complete six push-ups and four knee taps, and then do the circuit one last time with just four push-ups and two knee taps.
Stand with your legs slightly wider than hips-width distance apart, and your toes pointing out at a 45-degree angle. Hold a couple of moderately heavy weights at your chest, elbows bent at your sides.
Now, lower down into a deep squat, dipping your butt even lower than your knees. Keeping your heels on the floor and your toes pointed out, press into your feet and stand up, squeezing your glutes the whole way up.
Make sure you’re really driving your heels into the floor and pressing your glutes together, so the work is in your butt, not your quads.
Finally, once you’re standing, press your arms together overhead.
Its funny how 20+ years ago MOST of the actors who played Superheroes weren’t really in that great a shape compared to these FITNESS GOAL Beasts today.
For Example Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer & George Clooney as Batman all fine Actors and Bruce Waynes (well Kilmer was meh to me in that department) But I was like, Did u even workout for this? You’re playing a man who is the Ultimate Physical Specimen.
So seeing folks like Christian Bale and Ben Affleck put in mad work to show off a Buff Badass Batman is awesome. Even the INCREDIBLE Christopher Reeves
who is STILL the best Live action superman to date didn’t have a physique anywhere to Henry Cavill’s swole ass today.
Like thats a Dude I can believe benches planets.
I just like the fact they got these Superhero training schedules on point now for the MCU and Hell even DCEU lol
