One Piece inspired workouts have slowly been trickling in and making an impact on the site.
Now the most popular have recently been Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer and finally One Piece catching up!
So as you can tell One Piece inspired workouts are definitely still finding their way to our Anime Workouts Database.
Monkey D. Garp Stats:
Real Name: Monkey D. Garp
Anime: One Piece
Monkey D. Garp is ginormous.
Similar to White Beard and Gol D. Roger, he’s just rocking some other-worldly size.
Wolverine was the shortest spot among comic characters we’ve seen at 5’3, prior to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming in at 5’2, (and Gimli even shorter) – but Damian Wayne (Robin) is only 5’4. Goku isn’t that tall either, though, standing only 5’7, with Miles Morales only an inch above him.
We’ve had Superman and Eddie Brock’s Venom at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, and Carnage at 6’1. Thor and Cyborg are towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, Bane at 6’8, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5, and Black Manta at 6’4.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Monkey D. Garp Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hulk may get something specifically different)**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
Guys like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hopper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting (something I use daily as well), Ariana Grande, Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
It’s all about sustainability.
AND, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, SuperHumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!
Curious where over a hundred celebs fall in their dietary choices ranging from High Protein and Keto to Vegetarian, Vegan and Intermittent Fasting? Want exclusive celeb meal plans? Check this out.

Monkey D. Garp Workout Routine Research
We’ve made it to “the fun part”.
And, if you don’t know by now, I say that every single time we get to the workout routine research section for character workouts.
We already know we’re going to be training around size, but we’ll still start by pulling some background information right from Monkey D. Garp’s Wiki Fandom page.
Here’s what they have to tell us:
Monkey D. Garp is an extremely famous and powerful Marine vice admiral. He is the father of Monkey D. Dragon, the paternal grandfather of Monkey D. Luffy, and the adoptive grandfather of Portgas D. Ace.
He took charge of both Koby and Helmeppo’s training. After the war, he became a Marine Instructor to train new recruits, though still retaining the rank of vice admiral. Notably, Garp was offered the rank of Admiral several times throughout his career, but he refused the offer of promotion every time.
Garp is one of the major figures, along with Kong, Sengoku, Shiki, Silvers Rayleigh, and Whitebeard, from the times when the “Pirate King” was still alive.
Due to his actions, he could be considered the main antagonist of the Post-Enies Lobby Arc. He is also a supporting antagonist in the Marineford Arc.
This is actually a pretty significant background compared to what we’re used to seeing for some anime like MHA and even Naruto.
Clearly Monkey D. Garp has a ton of training behind him…
I think his size is pretty clear and it’s enough just looking at him to warrant skipping the description they give and moving right into his powers and abilities section.
They start us off with a bit of an overview, telling us just how strong he actually is:
Garp is easily one of the most powerful Marines and one of the strongest characters seen in the series.
A testament to his strength is that he was one of the very few people to be considered a rival to the “Pirate King” Gol D. Roger and he was offered the rank of Admiral several times throughtout his life. It should be noted that those who hold the rank of Admiral are regarded as the World Government’s “Greatest Military Powers” and are the strongest individual fighters within the World Government structure and the Marines.
In terms of combat, Garp has had several decades worth of experience, in both combat and navigating the harshest oceans within the volatile “New World”.
They also move onto wrap it up with even more information about how strong he is, and some other abilities we’ll need for this.
They talk about his strength and durability a bunch, but even mention his speed!
Here’s another big chunk of information:
Despite his advanced age, Garp still possesses tremendous physical strength. He is able to throw iron cannonballs like baseballs at speeds higher than if they were fired from an actual cannon, break through brick walls and cannon stands with his fists, and both carry and throw a gigantic ball and chain many times bigger than the Thousand Sunny. Garp also has a monstrous punching power at his disposal, with his epithet, “Garp the Fist”, vouching for the tremendous power of his punches. He claimed to have crushed eight mountains during his training to face Chinjao. Enhanced with Haki, Garp could even dent Chinjao’s Haki enhanced drill-shaped head, which was powerful enough to split the Jewel Ice Sheet.
In addition to his legendary strength, he also has incredible durability and pain-tolerance, as seen when he was slashed by Captain Morgan’s axe hand, only to recover only seconds later, with no obvious pain and apparently oblivious to the fact that he was struck at all. In fact, when informed by one of the Marines that he was nearly killed, he mistook this for one of the men being killed. It was only when he saw the wound did he realize what happened, as he fell asleep before being attacked. He was able to get back on his feet after allowing himself to be punched by Luffy in Gear Second at point-blank range without losing consciousness, and was still able to fight the Blackbeard Pirates along with Sengoku.
He has also been shown to be extremely fast, as he managed to bypass all of the Straw Hats in order to get to a sleeping Luffy. It is evident Whitebeard respects Garp’s strength, as he mentioned him during his talk with Shanks.
For this one we’re going to be training to:
- Become Massive and Gain Size
- Become Extremely Strong
- Become Fast and Agile
If that’s something you want: stick around and get ready.
