Fight Fit Workout: Namekian Way

Fight Fit Workout Inspiration

This anime inspired fight fit workout is based off Dragon Ball’s Namekians, to be more specific, Piccolo. Based on the battles we see between Piccolo and the villains from the Dragon Ball universe, Namekians display powerful warrior traits and are proficient in combat due to their super strength, speed, hearing abilities, limb extension, limb regeneration and self-cloning power.

Behind the Workout:

Based on the Namekian’s fighting tactics, this fight fit workout was developed to help cosplayers learn how to execute both essential and advance fighting skills while simultaneously train their speed, agility, explosive power and an often-overlooked element, mobility.

Fictional to Functional:

Fictional superpowers the Namekian’s hold include limb extension, limb regeneration and self-cloning abilities. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have these fictional abilities as human beings however, exercises and training tactics do exist that we humans can follow to build or mimic these fictional abilities.

Limb Extension > Flying Attacks: Flying attacks can help close distance.

Limb Regeneration > Deep Breaths: Deep breaths can aid damaged tissue.

Self-Cloning > Blind Fold Shadow Boxing: Imagining sparring yourself can improve fight skills.

Super-Hearing > Blind Fold Shadow Boxing: By removing your sense of seeing, you can focus on your sense of hearing.

Workout Implementation:

To maintain balance between all other training practices, it’s recommended to complete a fight fit workout at least 3x/week at minimum.

Punching Bag
