Can we setup tropes foroccurances of particular exercises? One Arm Pushups done by Rock Lee in Naruto Hand Stand Pushups done in season 3 of Letterkenny and opening theke of The Zhu Zhus. There is also a form of Back Cracking in anime where they stand back to back, one bends forward to pull other i to a backbend. Also Dumbbell Curls are done by Duke Togou in Golgo 13 I believe Back Squats occur in baseball anime Touch. The idea of training in particular ways is tropish even if not hellish.
