Warriors aren't built over night. Even some of our favorite anime hero's were required to go through the basics before becoming masters in their warrior craft. Goku started off training as a young child plowing dirt with his hands under Master Roshi's guidance and Saitama had a dream to become a superhero and started his own training regimen with simple push ups, squats, sit ups and running. Both of these heroe's honed in on these basics, advanced in their training and achieved greatness.

  • During the hip hinge, do not round your back. Maintain a flat back by imagining a towel tied to your back and you are prevented from arching.
