Sabo comes in at SHJ as the character that is going to really round out our current One Piece Inspired Workouts and bring us into a new space!
We now have enough to warrant the mini-workout-database I linked to above that will be within our larger Anime Workouts Database – as well as enough to start moving into some awesome One Piece listicles as well!
And I mean…we know how much you guys love your “Most Powerful” and “Most Popular” lists…
Oh, and the cool part about One Piece is the fact that there are so many GIGANTIC characters, so now whenever we get a character like Sabo or Shanks I can warrant making you guys an awesome One Piece calisthenics inspired routine like I’m going to do for this one.
Real Name: Sabo
Height: 6’1 1/2″
Anime: One Piece
In terms of regular characters Sabo is actually tall when compared to 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.

Sabo Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero.**
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.

Sabo 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 get us started with our research we’ll be pulling right from Sabo’s Wiki Fandom page.
They give us a nice intro bio section:
Sabo is the Revolutionary Army’s chief of staff, recognized as the No. 2 of the entire organization outranked only by Supreme Commander Monkey D. Dragon. He is also the sworn brother of the notorious pirates Monkey D. Luffy and the late Portgas D. Ace.
They also move into powers and abilities, starting off with his overall power as the chief of staff of the Revolutionary Army.
Here’s how they break that down:
As the Chief of Staff of the Revolutionary Army, Sabo has command over all lower ranking members and answers only to the leader himself. His bounty of 602,000,000 proves that the World Government views him as an extremely dangerous threat. According to Ace, who initially planned for Sabo to become his navigator, Sabo also has some experience in navigation.
From there they move into his physical powers and abilities, which are what we’ll be able to actually utilize to build out this routine a bit more.
They lead that section with this:
Even as a child, Sabo already exhibited very high levels of physical capabilities from the very intense training he endured in the harsh environment of Mt. Colubo. He and Ace together were able to topple Porchemy when the two of them arrived to save Luffy. Sabo was able to beat Luffy in sparring matches fifty times in one day. He was also able to beat Ace twenty four times, although he lost to Ace twenty six times.
They also say:
After joining the Revolutionary Army, Sabo was personally trained by Hack and Monkey D. Dragon and attained tremendous physical prowess by adulthood. Sabo is shown to have extraordinary agility as he easily dodged an attack from a Fighting Fish, as well as tremendous physical strength, clashing with Jesus Burgess, a pirate known for his titanic strength and a captain of the Blackbeard Pirates first ship, who is also a personal bodyguard to Emperor Blackbeard, with little effort. He later destroys the entire arena of the Corrida Colosseum, which was tough enough to resist all the previous battles between the New World gladiators with Haki enhanced physical strikes. A simple grip allowed him to crush Vice Admiral Bastille’s skull and helmet.
So we have our work cut out for us.
That’s all outside the fact that his Devil Fruit power allows him to create, control and even turn his own body into fire at will.
We obviously won’t be training to achieve that, but we will be keeping in mind how powerful he is while we build out the overall volume and intensity of this routine.
Think you can handle it?

We’re going to be utilizing three days of gymnast style full body calisthenics and holds to build up the physique and strength Sabo has – while also tacking on one day of circuit training and another of basic endurance training.
