Issei's Beginner "Devil's Pawn" Training (Highschool DxD)

Highschool DxD is a mix of supernatural/religious lore thrown right along side a generous helping of fan-service. The main character, Issei, is blessed with a special ability that makes him very valuable, but he's extremely physically weak and, therefore, not particularly useful.  At first he decides that he's going to train himself to get stronger, but quickly gives up on that, before his training is taken up by Rias, the heiress to a high-ranking devil family.

This workout is based on the things we see both Issei and Rias program for training.

He looks pretty badass here.
Don't expect a lot at the beginning. 

Issei's Beginner "Devil's Pawn" Training

  1. Pull-ups to Failure
  2. Deadman Hang to Failure
  3. Run 1 Mile, as fast as possible
  4. Seated Split Stretch- 5 Minutes
  5. Push-ups to Failure
  6. Plank to Failure

  • This is a very beginner-level workout. 
  • Do as many pull-ups as you can, then hang from the bar until your grip gives out (Deadman Hang)
  • If you cannot perform any pull-ups at all, just hang from the bar as long as you can until you fall. Do this twice. Once for the set of pull-ups and once for the set of Deadman Hang.
  • If you have to walk during the run, that's fine. Just do your best to get the mile done in as fast a time as possible.
  • On the Seated Split Stretch, slowly try to push your legs out wider and lean forward as much as you can during the 5 minutes. Do not hurt yourself, but try to push your flexibility. 
  • Finally, do as many push-ups as possible, before finally holding the top of the push-up position as long as possible. 
That's all for today! Until next time, good luck and train hard!

Centurion Method Workout #5: Couple's Night

This Centurion Method workout is a partner workout! If you don't have a partner, keep a timer handy so that you can know how long you need to do the corresponding exercise.

Workout #5: Couple's Night

  1. 3 x 20 Burpee Clock --- Plank 
  2. 3 x 20 Pull-up Clock --- Bear Crawl
  3. 3 x 1 Minute of Slow Leg Raises --- Rest
  4. 3 x 1 Minute of Inch Worms --- Rest
  5. 3 x 1 Minute of Frog Leaps --- Rest
  • To explain, you will perform 20 Burpees while your partner is planking. When you get to 20 Burpees, you will switch and you will plank while your partner does 20 Burpees. Same thing for Pull-ups and Bear Crawls. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 sets per partner.
  • On the last three exercises, one partner will exercise for the listed time and the other partner will rest. You will then switch. 
  • You can do leg raises lying flat on the ground or hanging from a bar. Try to do them as slow as possible.
  • For Inch Worms, you will hinge at the hips with your legs straight, walk your hands out to the push-up position, then walk your feet up to your hands while keeping your legs straight. Stand up to complete one rep. Repeat for listed time.
  • Frog Leaps are performed by squatting until your hands are on the ground and then exploding up into the air. Land and repeat.
  • To make this harder, double the sets.
