Miyata's Basic Training

Before Miyata was the God of Lightning, he was the resident genius of counter-punching at Kamogawa Gym. Trained by his father from a young age in the art of technical boxing, Miyata is the ideological opposite to Makunouchi Ippo's hardcore in-fighting style. This workout is based on the beginning levels of Miyata's training. It's super technical and focuses on the basics of boxing. 

Miyata's Basic Training


Run 3 Miles

  1. 10 Minutes Speed Bag
  2. 30 Push-ups
  3. 30 Sit-ups
  4. 3 Minutes Rest
  5. 10 Minutes Double-End Bag
  6. 30 Push-ups 
  7. 30 Sit-ups
  8. 3 Minutes Rest
  9. 10 Minutes Heavy Bag
  10. 30 Push-ups
  11. 30 Sit-ups
  12. 3 Minutes Rest
  13. 10 Minutes Footwork Practice
  14. 3 x 3 Minutes Jump Rope
  15. 3 x 3 Minutes Shadowboxing
  16. 3 x 3 Minutes Mitt Work

  • As you'll see, the main focus here is basic fitness combined with a great deal of skill work. This training is supposed to be Miyata's training up until he leaves Kamogawa Gym. 
  • The speed bag work builds timing and hand-eye coordination, which is useful for the Counter.
  • The double-end bag will have a similar purpose as the speed bag, except for the fact that it will also include some head movement and slipping, which is especially useful for the Counter. 
  • On the heavy bag, focus on well-placed punches for the set-up for the Counter. 
  • For footwork practice, work on advancing, retreating, circling, and shifting or bouncing. 
  • You're not going to get super strong with this workout, but you're going to build a base level of fitness and sharpen your skills so that hitting someone with accuracy at the right time will be much easier. 

This workout is the last one for the beginning Kamogawa workouts. I'll post the later workouts for each of these characters at a later time. Hope you enjoyed this one. Until next time, good luck and train hard!
