We’re going to get some more boxing themed workouts this week.
Of course there are some others hidden within our Workout Database, but we’ll be building these out this week with Ippo Makunouchi and even Eli Goree who played Muhammad Ali and boxed in Riverdale.
Ippo Makunouchi joins our Anime Workouts Database from Hajime No Ippo and is going to allow us to have some fun mixing up some boxing training.
Ippo Makunouchi Stats:
Real Name: Ippo Makunouchi
Weight: 126 lbs.
Anime: Hajime no Ippo
Ippo comes in really short (and I’m allowed to say that because I’m only like 5’6 on a good day).
But, his height is actually fairly average when compared to the other male anime characters we’ve seen.
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.

Ippo Makunouchi 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.

Ippo Makunouchi 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.
To start us off we’ll get to know Ippo Makunouchi a little more by pulling some information right from his Wiki Fandom.
Here’s how they start us off with his bio:
Ippo Makunouchi is the eponymous protagonist of Hajime no Ippo. He is a trainer, retired featherweight professional boxer from the Kamogawa gym, and a former reigning featherweight JBC champion.
He originally started boxing to try and answer one simple question: “What does it mean to be strong?”. Since then, he has formed a rivalry with Miyata Ichirō, Sendō Takeshi, Mashiba Ryō, a brotherly bond with Takamura Mamoru, Aoki Masaru, Kimura Tatsuya, and a deep trust for his coach, Kamogawa Genji, whom he aims to become a world champion for to honour the coach’s teachings. After retiring from boxing, he has become a trainer, being a second for his gym mates while training Aoki Taihei and Kintarō Kaneda.
What do you guys think it means to be strong?
It reminds me of a question that Baki would ask as well.
I think that answer is different for everyone, but I prefer to be strong and athletic in multiple areas: strength in weights, calisthenics and muscle endurance, speed, overall stamina endurance, and more.
Jumping ahead to Ippo’s boxing abilities, they explain that as such:
Ippo is a pure in-fighter, regarded as the number one in-fighter in Japan and the OPBF while he was active, while also boasting the best punching power in the region.
His punching power aided him to become the All-Japan Rookie King and Most Talented Rookie Award winner, as well as coming out victorious in the Class A Tournament. In one go, he rose to the very top of the national rankings and earned a shot for Japan’s throne, the JBC featherweight belt. Although he was unable to take the title from the veteran champion Date Eiji, he managed to defeat the champion Sendō Takeshi, taking the belt and defending it a total of eight times, while simultaneously building a reputation as the unofficial king of the OPBF. His durability and fighting spirit are considered to be his greatest attributes; each unparalleled in Japan.
Even before he started boxing, he had a good muscle build. Years of helping his mother carrying the fishing coolers to and from the boat helped develop his muscles and also constantly moving around on the fishing boat helped him develop a good lower body as well as good balance.
Not only was Ippo the best, but that also came with the strongest punch to go along with it.
They also explain his overall power and strength with
More than anything else, Ippo’s boxing is distinguished and built around his overwhelming destructive power, evidenced by the 100% KO rate in his victories, with all of them coming before the 9th round. Along with Sendō, Ippo is considered to possess the strongest punches in the whole featherweight division.
Even before joining the Kamogawa gym, Ippo showed extraordinary muscular strength and punching power when he punched the sandbag for the first time, to the astonishment of everyone at the gym. Ippo’s sheer physicality coupled with his indomitable fighting spirit, enables him to endure tremendous physical damage and continue fighting.
From there they go on to talk about how incredible his speed and stamina is due to his relentless training – and we’re going to be looking to replicate that with our own training.
For this we’re going to train like one of the greatest boxers of all time: Mike Tyson.
BUT, I’ll also be pairing that with some other training we’ve seen on the site as well to step it up a notch.
