Nishi's Weight Loss Training (Ashita no Joe)

In Ashita no Joe, Nishi is Joe's training partner and the only other member of Danpei's gym. He starts out as an overweight boxer with a mediocre record and a penchant for midnight snacking. However, over time, he gets into the grind and really pushes himself, dropping weight and getting into a much better weight class, where he is able to shine. This workout is based on the training that we see Nishi do to drop weight.

"You mean I can't eat two bowls of udon at midnight and lose weight?!"

Nishi's Weight Loss Training

Do all three exercises in any order:

  1. Jump Rope- 30 Minutes
  2. Running- 30 Minutes
  3. Shadowboxing- 30 Minutes

  • This is a very simple workout, but it will really push your endurance. 
  • The good thing about this workout is that you can change it around to work yourself differently. Shadowboxing is a different experience after jumping rope and running, the same as pushing your run after the rope jumping and shadowboxing.
  • If you are out of shape, you can walk or do walk/jog intervals during the run and take short breaks in the jump rope and shadowboxing sessions. 

That's all for today! Until next time, good luck and train hard!
