Saiyan Battle Training

The Saiyans aren't really seen training that often and the training we do see appears to be combat-related. In general, the 10x Gravity and a wealth of fighting and beating each other into Zenkai after Zenkai would likely be all the race would need to get stronger. (That is, until Goku and Vegeta used other training methods to become like a gazillion times stronger than ordinary Saiyans.)

Fighting with this cape is going to be difficult.
A Patreon donation would probably help procure better battle attire. 

This workout is designed to mimic the type of training a Saiyan might receive on the battlefield.

Saiyan Battle Training

  1. Sprint 50 Meters
  2. 10 Sprawls
  3. Sprint 50 Meters
  4. 30 Seconds Shadowboxing/Bagwork
--AMRAP to Failure, Rest 3 Minutes, then
  1. Sprint 100 Meters
  2. 10 Tuck Jumps
  3. 10 Sandbag Throws (50+#)
  4. 30 Seconds Shadowboxing/Bagwork
--AMRAP to Failure, Rest 3 Minutes, then
  1. Sprint 400 Meters
  2. Heavy Tire Flip OR Sled Pull/Push- 200 Meters
  3. Walking Lunges- 100 Meters
  4. Bear Crawl- 50 Meters
  5. Army Crawl- 25 Meters
  6. Shadowbox/Bagwork to FAILURE!!!

  1. This is not an easy workout. At the very beginning, you may only be able to do the first section. That's fine. You're just a budding Saiyan warrior! 
  2. AMRAP to Failure means that you will keep doing that section of the training until you have to stop. So, if you fail in a sprint or have to fall on the ground and breathe during an exercise, that section is done. So, if you're new to all this, just stick to the first section and go it a little easy for the first few times.
  3. Throw the sandbag any way you like. As it gets easier, use a heavier version.
  4. Your shadowboxing and bagwork should be relatively fast.
  5. The last section is to take you to the point of absolute exhaustion, so that you're ready to receive a Zenkai worthy of a Saiyan monster such as yourself. 

That's all for today! Until next time, good luck and train hard!  And if you like what you see, consider sharing this workout and becoming a Patron!

"The King's Mobility"- Mobility for Professional Wrestling

Being a professional wrestler is hard on the body, both in training and in practice. And this is especially so for one that also is a real fighter. In order to make sure that an athlete stays healthy in the sport, it is essential that they learn to take care of themselves and stay loose to prevent injury. It's very easy to become so focused on getting stronger and faster that you forget to work on your mobility and end up with an injury that sidelines you for weeks. Let's prevent that.

This workout is designed to make sure that you can maintain good movement, flexibility, and general mobility. It should take you about an hour to complete this workout. 

Mobility for Professional Wrestling
  1. 10 Minutes Cardio of Choice (Break a Sweat!) 
  2. Cossack Squat- 10 Reps (Supported if needed) 
  3. Joint Rotations- 10 Reps per joint
  4. Hold Bottom Position of Squat- 1 Minute 
  5. External Hip Rotation Stretch- 1 Minute/Side 
  6. Deep Lunge Stretch (Runner’s Stretch)- 1 Minute/Side 
  7. Seated Split Stretch- 1 Minute 
  8. Deadman Hang- 1 Minute 
  9. Band Pull-Aparts OR Light Cable Rear Delt Flyes- 50 Reps 
  10. Glute Bridge- 50 Reps
  11. YTW- 5 Sets, 15 Second Hold Per Position 
  12. High Front Kick- 15 Reps/Side 
  13. High Round Kick- 15 Reps/Side 
  14. Repeat 2-13 

  • The cardio can be any kind you like. You can jog, jump rope, shadowbox lightly, ride a bike, use an elliptical, or even play Dance, Dance Revolution. Keep it fun!
  • Cossack Squats start from the bottom of the squat. Lean your weight all onto one foot and straighten your other leg out to the side with the toes pointed up toward the ceiling. Transition your weight back to the other foot, shifting it into the squat position and the other one pointing up to the ceiling. 1 on each side is 1 Rep. You may need to use a bench in front of you to support yourself. Keep your heels on the ground and don't roll to your toes at any point during the movement.
  • For the rest of the movements, use the search function if you have questions about them. We'll be adding more and more movements in video form to make it easier for reference.

"The King's Heart" Workout

Endurance is extremely important as a wrestler, even a Luchador. You need to be able to move around, jump, throw, strike (in a mixed context) and control your opponent. And you need to be able to do it for an extended period of time, just in case someone puts the timer on Infinity. This workout is designed to strengthen your cardiorespiratory system and build muscular endurance in the type of movements that you've built your strength up in the other King workouts!  

The King's Armor 
Let's get to it!

“The King’s Heart” Workout
  1. 3 Minutes Heavy Bag Work 
  2. 1 Minute Push-ups for Max Reps 
--3 Rounds, then
  1. 2 Minutes Sledgehammer Strikes 
  2. 1 Minute Waist Twists w/45# Plate for Max Reps 
--3 Rounds, then
  1. 1 Minute Back Squat @40% 1 RM for Max Reps 
  2. 1 Minute Pull-ups or Lat Pull-Downs @60% 1 RM for Max Reps 
--3 Rounds, then
  1. 800 Meter Run (Can also carry a Heavy Bag in a Bear Hug 400 Meters if available) 
  2. 1 Minute Walking Lunges for Max Reps
--3 Rounds

  • Wearing hand wraps for the heavy bag will help you not tear the skin on your hands.
  • Swing the sledgehammer at a tire. It's easier than smashing stakes into the ground repeatedly.
  • There's not really any rest programmed into this workout. You'll get a little rest moving in between stations, so just focus on slowing your breathing down after each exercise couplet.

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