Yeah this seems absolutely pathetic and childish I'll admit dragonball z is a kids cartoon.
For years though, this guy has inpsired me to want to get big.

But how big would Vegeta be in real life, could you tell from looking at this image?

If you have a rough idea could ya let me know.

Anyway I was always amazed by some of the dragonball z dialogue.
What do you think about some of their training methods, which although not really available to us would be fascinating.
E.g. Gravity chamber.

Although I'm dissapointed that I never saw them lifting weights ha.

Since I love DBZ, I'll just have a laugh at this thread and play along. No harm in good fun.

Vegeta would be 5'6 around 185-195lbs. Goku would be 5'10-11", 215+/-lbs. Krillin would be 5 foot, 120-130lbs.

BTW, wiki says that Vegeta is 5'3, 223lbs. That's bigger than fucking Lee Preist. Clearly wiki users don't understand bodybuilding (who woulda guessed?)

I'm sure body weight exercises in 500x Earth gravity did it's part.

Your not in the wrong section this is one of those blurry training/fantasy threads that can fit hear i guess.

The one thing I know for sure about Sayian training is that they EAT, EAT, EAT, EAT, and EAT, some more. They have high intensity work outs and practice sparring often. If you want to mimic the High G chamber why not, do weighted body weight workouts? Push ups with a weight vest, Dips with the chain, pullups with the weighted pull up belt. One legged squats shit like that. I doubt you would get as buff as the price of all Sayians though. But you will be ripped.

I thought I remember Goku doing squats with trees back in the earlier episodes, but I could just be thinking of myself.

Don't Saiyans get stronger every time they get beaten as long as they don't die? I think Vegeta manipulated that fact or something early on in the series.

Actually it's the lack of all myostatin genes.

Somehow the saiyan transformation allowed them to mainpulate their genetic make-up. Let's be real, they turned into giant monkey's, so maybe they were evolving closer and closer to this monkey trait. This seems to make sense if you look at their final transformation into Super Saiyan 4, because they look like a true combination between monkey and man...haha god I need a life.

it more or less taught me patience, because you had to wait like 6 episodes for them to even fight their enemy. Haha for like 4 episodes all you see is Goku's enemies powering up and basically yelling "just you wait Goku, once I am done powering up it's on". Five episodes later...Goku throws a spirt bomb and that's that.

For a short guy 185lbs is pretty big...
Well I know the weight range I'm going for now, since I'm roughly the same height.

I'm gonna buy a weight vest to go along with the rest of my weighted stuff, I'll be honest I don't use my wrist/ankle weights much.
But I can see how a weighted vest would be useful.

I don't know about you guys but I always thought Vegeta was a larger guy than Goku in sheer muscle mass...
Although I wont deny Goku had some damn good arms.

I was just watching an Episode haha...

I always admired Goku and Gohan for their humble attitude.. but when someone else thats a jack ass gets all the credit it pisses me off lol.

They Eat Eat Eat like Crazy!!!!!!

Goku does hand stand push ups with an Olympic bar with weights balanced on the soles of his feet in high Gravity

they wear weighted clothing (like 1 ton stuff)

Personally I would love to have some like 50lb shoes and do that stuff.. it would be so cool haha

they have a Chamber where one day= like a year in real time

they get exponentially stronger in a matter of weeks when training the training is very intense.

they have awesome hair!

they train for speed!
