Kaio-sama's Training

Thought I'd jump back for a minute and give you guys another Dragonball workout, since I didn't really specify a workout for Kaio-sama's trianing. You could just follow the elaborate scheme laid out in the Dragonball Training Manual, or you could take a little easier path, and just do this workout. :D

Kaio-sama's Training
(Do not move to the next level workout until you have completed the current level three times without failing.)

Level One

Catch Bubbles
100 Yard Zig-zag Run
2 Sets of 90 Degree Sprints
100 Yard Sprint

Then, Hit Gregory
25 Yard Sprint with Sledgehammer
25 Overhead Strikes with Sledgehammer
--4 Rounds of "Hit Gregory"

Level Two


Catch Bubbles
150 Yard Zig-zag Run
3 Sets of 90 Degree Sprints
2 x 100 Yard Sprint


Then, Hit Gregory
25 Yard Sprint with Sledgehammer
25 Overhead Strikes with Sledgehammer
--6 Rounds of "Hit Gregory"

Level Three


Catch Bubbles
200 Yard Zig-zag Run
4 Sets of 90 Degree Sprints
3 x 100 Yard Sprint


Then, Hit Gregory
25 Yard Sprint with Sledgehammer
25 Overhead Strikes with Sledgehammer

Master Level


Catch Bubbles

  • 300 Yard Zig-zag Run
  • 5 Sets of 90 Degree Sprints
  • 4 x 100 Yard Sprint


Then, Hit Gregory

  • 25 Yard Sprint with Sledgehammer
  • 25 Overhead Strikes with Sledgehammer
--10 Rounds of "Hit Gregory"

This is as close as I can get to Kaio-sama's training for Goku without spending thousands of dollars on RC Cars and Planes. Haha.

NOTES:
  • A Zig-zag Run means you look straight ahead, start running at a 45 degree angle to the left or right and, after 5 steps, turn 90 degrees in the opposite direction. Then, you run 5 steps, turn 90 degrees, run 5 steps, turn 90 degrees... you get the picture. Essentially, you are cutting a zig-zag line in between your starting and finishing points. It turns a 100 yard run into something a little longer, and it forces you to make turns abruptly. This is a "run," so it's not an all-out sprint, but it's not a light jog either.
  • If you have a partner for "Catch Bubbles" then that can help with pushing your pace. 
  • We covered 90 Degree Sprints in Rock Lee's Conditioning.
  • When sprinting with the sledgehammer, keep a tight hold on it with BOTH hands, so you don't drop it. You'll want to hit something like a log or a tire. Be careful about bounce in the sledgehammer, especially if you fail to keep a good grip on it.
  • Also, to increase the difficulty you can use heavier sledgehammers. I've seen sledgehammers nearing 200 pounds, so there's always room for progression here.  Not to mention, it's possible that you could be wearing weighted clothing at some point as well.
That's all for today. Good luck and train hard!
