Introducing to you the OPM DataBook, Better Workouts Everyday.
Inspiration behind OPM Databook
OPM simply stands for One Punch Man, a fictional superhero character created by Japanese Manga Artist, ONE (pseudonym name). One Punch Man is an incredibly overpowered superhero in the story and is often bored with the absence of challenge in any of his fights. His disciple, Genos, once asked him about the secret to OPM’s strength, he replied saying he did 100 repetitions of push-ups, sit-ups, and squats and also ran a distance of 10km every single day for three years. (the secret of OPM)
What is inside the OPM Databook?
The OPM DataBook comprises a 100-day consistent training workout which can be done continuously or with rest-day breaks as required. The book is designed so it will be a partner for your everyday life, and also a buddy for our daily workouts.
Research has shown that people spend a large amount of time planning and detailing in their notebooks, sometimes this affect completion of their actual tasks. We want to create a product where people will be able to spend minimal effort on the planners or notebooks and truly use it as a tool to get their task accomplished. The OPM Databook has been designed in this manner to ensure planning and data recording process are streamlined.
As we accumulate more workout result data, we will come to understand more about our own body. This also provides valuable feedback on our overall performance, and indispensable in identifying our strengths and weaknesses.
What is the uniqueness of OPM?
Monitor your fitness performance to find out how well you are doing!
Daily Log Records
Record your workout results and also keep track of your day with Tasks and Reminders. Any incidents or observation can also be sketched here!
Blend of Fiction & Reality
As you can see, this book blends fiction and reality. As a sports enthusiast and elite athlete, I liken how this type of resources will birth new imaginations to existing workouts. Craft unique “super power” attainments through the various comic (manga) styled depictions. More so, this grants a journey/ quest like any individual working training goals (to keep fit, lose weight, gain mass) to be faster, stronger. It blends very well.
OPM tracks the progress and has insights on nutrition, sleep, workout principles. Bringing this book for workouts can indeed boost the interaction with your workouts. Conversely, this can also be a great reflection tool of workout goals. Often, I find myself thinking really hard what was the previous workout I did. Consistently pledging goals with tracking the record is important.

This is important for any workout plans that require a systematic progress report. The ODM Databook helps a user to follow a repetitive method to build consistency and to carry out. This is simply the easiest way to get into being fit and healthy.

Though it may seem that this workout goal is pinned on the book without any interaction. Like reading a novel/ book, the connection is built chapters upon chapters, this method of a team centric approach exemplifies the connection with the authors of this book that have shaped the workout to reach your desired goals.
Throughout the OPM Databook, you can see how it involves the ecosystem of a healthy lifestyle that includes the mental, physical, emotional considerations that will give rise to an individual better knowing themselves and wouldn’t this be a great self help book as well to explore and express yourself.
We have encountered multiple apps, resources that give us everything in one chunk, it takes time, effort and knowledge to break down the information to find what suits us. For those that believe in the workout that OPM Databook offers, that is great. For those exploring, it would be a great opportunity to pick this up. If it works, continue on it, if not, you have at least understood some basics on planning for your next workout goals. This simple system approach will benefit any one.
How Can I Benefit From This Workout?
This system does hit many major movement patterns. You have a pushing motion (push-ups), core training (sit-ups), leg training (squats), and some cardio (running). As far as fitness routines goes, this is superior to what people normally do at the gym. That is, these bodyweight exercises hit more muscle groups in a more natural pattern. No cable curls, no strange forced machine movements, and much less injury risk since all exercises are bodyweight only.
Lets see some pros and cons of this workout (as always, you have to pick your workout based on your goals)
Pros of the One Punch Man Workout:
- Muscular Endurance
- Cardiovascular Endurance
- Really, really fun
- Very easy to follow
- No equipment needed!
Cons of the One Punch Man Workout:
- Not the most effective for hypertrophy (muscle size growth)
- Doesn’t build excellent force production (raw strength for heavy weights)
Nutrition Guidelines For Such Workouts
Saitama only had one rule: don’t skip breakfast, even if you were just eating a banana. But with a challenging workout like this, diet becomes very crucial. Just remember that you need to include two major necessities to develop this ‘superhero’ strength:
- More protein – You will need to pack a minimum of at least 8g of protein per pound of bodyweight. So plate up on your eggs, salmon, beans and legumes as these not only keep your energy levels going good but will also help you to get a lean body.
- More fruits and vegetables – The best way to get the most nutrition out of fruits and veggies is to use a variety of colors. Pick as many colorful fruits you can and it will be really hard to resist when you have a dish that is nothing short of a work of art. So load up on greens like spinach, kale and broccoli, spuds, tomatoes. Bananas are great but oranges, melons, berries and apples are all packed with a heady mix of protein, carbs and sugar.

I think the guys at Evil Supplies Co. have given their expertise in catering the ODM Databook for any levels of fitness individuals. I wanted to make sure you see the potential this workout has as a legitimate “General Physical Preparedness” (GPP) program, or as an intro to bodyweight strength training.

In the manga story, OPM continued to train his body every single day for three years to the extent of vomiting blood. At the end of his training, he lost all his hair, became bald, but gained overwhelming strong physical power.
