Look What Happened When this guy trained as” One Punch Man ” for 100 days
YouTuber Tyler Oliveira recreated the grueling workout regime of the anime hero.
There are plenty of training programs to help you get shredded like superheroes like Thor, Wolverine and Captain America, but for his latest challenge, YouTuber Tyler Oliveira took inspiration from another hero. For 100 days, Oliveira worked as Saitama of the animated series One Punch Man.
Saitama has undergone such rigorous physical training that he has exceeded his human limits and is now able to defeat all enemies in one fell swoop (hence his name) — after training like Saitama, will Oliveira get the same powers every day for 100 days?
Training “One Punch Man” consists of:
10 km race
The first month, Oliveira embarked on the challenge by performing push-ups, Situps, squats and running seven days a week. Oliveira notes that because he trained intensely every day without rest, his body did not have enough time to rebuild the muscles he was exhausting, and after 30 days the only visible difference was in his calf muscles.
For the next 30 days, he took two days off in his regime and reduced his running distance to just under 6.5 km. During this time, however, he realized that he had missed Saitama’s unwavering commitment and discipline, and therefore, from day 60, he increased the Ante considerably. He started on day 60 with a 5 km run, then every day after that he would increase his walking distance by a tenth of a mile (0.16 km).
Not only that, but every week he added 10 more repetitions to his daily push-ups, Situps and squats. “Surprisingly, the slight incremental increase of just 10 per workout I took was definitely enough to push me to my limits,” he says.
Oliveira says he has improved his shape enormously over 100 days and has found that his pumps in addition to a side mirror have helped him maintain an optimal technique and correct his shape if necessary. He also made some changes to his diet and consumed many high-protein foods, especially chicken and eggs.
By day 79, his days were more visible, and the abdominal muscles began to become visible under a thin layer of fat, but Saitama’s training also took its toll. “This training is really starting to piss me off, I’m not going to lie,” he says. “I’m afraid to wake up to do these push-ups and squats. But running is relaxing, I give it so much.”
On day 100, at the end of the challenge, Oliveira estimates that he has lost five or six pounds and has generally become firmer, but his Pecs are actually a little less defined because of all the Cardio.
“If I did it strictly for the purpose of getting Buff, building muscle, showing visible gains, I would probably only invest $ 10 in a gym, go there five days a week, train one or two different parts of my body every day, and give those muscle groups several days to grow stronger, rather than what I did in the One Punch Man training, which basically destroyed the same muscle groups every day.”
