One Piece: Straw Hat Luffy's Training

Monkey D. Luffy is a fun, good-spirited guy and captain of a ragtag team of pirates. He has the powers of the Gum-Gum Fruit, allowing him to stretch his body to super-extremes and, at times, dish out a massive amount of power. Since he's a brawler, that works out well for him. 

For Luffy's training, then, I tried to work on explosiveness, while drawing in a little of the springiness of Luffy's rubber-like body. Hopefully, I do it justice, but we'll see.

One Piece: Straw Hat Luffy's Training
  1. 10 Muscle-ups*
  2. 10 Full Power Push-ups
  3. 10 High Jump Squats
  4. 10 Long Jump Squats
  5. 100 Meter Sprint
  6. 20 Full Power Punches to Heavy Bag
  7. 20 Full Power Kicks to Heavy Bag
  8. 1 Minute All-Out Heavy Bag
As Many Rounds As Possible

  • If you can't do Muscle-ups, do 10 Pull-ups and 10 Dips instead.
  • A Full-Power Push-up is just a normal push-up, but you push yourself off the ground as high as you can with every rep.
  • High Jump Squats just means that you jump as high as you can on every rep.
  • Long Jump Squats means that you leap forward at the top of every rep. You can pause between reps if you need to regain your balance. 
  • Don't worry about speed for the Full-Power strikes on the heavy bag, just think about putting your all into every strike.
  • For the All-Out round on the Heavy Bag, you hit as hard and as fast as you can for the entire minute.
  • There is no rest period in between exercises or rounds. You go until you can't and then that's the end.
  • You also have the option of using exercise bands to modify any of these exercises. 

Hope I did the Straw Hat Pirate justice and I hope you have fun with this one. Until next time, good luck and train hard!
