    Synopsis
    Sakura Hibiki is your average high school girl, with a voracious appetite. Noticing her clothes tightening in lieu of her slowly expanding waistline she decides to look into enrolling in the nearby gym. There she runs into a girl from her grade named Souryuuin Akemi.

    Akemi, who has a muscle fetish tries to get Hibiki to enroll in the gym despite its high ratio of macho men. Thankfully a beautiful trainer, Machio, appears and unknowingly convinces her to enroll and start her quest to a great body.

    @Deus Mortis @Chaudfontaine I know you guys are watching. I meant to make this thread weeks ago but so be it.
    it definitely balances comedy, ecchi and other elements but there have been times, like on the episode where they were at rich girl’s house, that they could’ve added in additional exercises for the at home portion or just in general and it would’ve been the perfect opportunity to build on previously given knowledge. Like adding tricep extensions of various types (overhead or at your sides with water bottles or canned goods) or any kind of pushups from wall all the way to incline or one handed or cross-legged or weighted, for example. The training for sports day was fantastic—especially when they show what happens if you overdo it initially and that you need to workout at a steady, moderate rate so that you can continue to function. Lactic acid buildup is real. The sauna lessons are important as well. It’s just a great show that doesn’t have misinformation but conveys it in a super fun way. As a former workout geek, I love it!

    I still have a bit of catching up to do so I did not read the spoilers part that you posted, however from what I have seen it made me laugh quite abit and also made me wonder how many of those work out suits does Machio own because he flexes right out of them one second and the next he's got a fresh one on..

    Well if that wasn’t the cutest ending. I dunno what I expected of Hibiki—honestly. Of course she was too hungry to be taken seriously in competition lol. Wait, they were stranded for a week? That’s messed up. How early were they trying to show up to plant those cameras?

    Oh, I absolutely love this series. I read it before as well but the anime is entertaining and very motivating.

    Me and my bf, we have a skit these days. We binge watch anime and then we watch an episode of dumbbell nan kilo moteru to remind ourselves of how lazy we have become. And then we hit the gym to do all of the things we sort of know how to do and make ourselves feel stupid.

    It's fun. All of these things happen in a 1-2 hour period. Yep. Motivating.
