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.

What distinguishes this from The Spartan Way? It would appear from the descriptions that it is merely a matter of scope (training a whole military unit = TSW, training a handful of ninjas = TFH), but there seems to be a lot of crossover between the two.

The Spartan Way is meant to describe a whole way of life. Training from Hell is meant to describe a training regimen for, at most, a military division for the portion of their lives they're in the military.
