These were the exact words from Saitama.
But he it is not what he did. It is about how he did the workout. He tells that you need to workout every day, 7 days a week without even having a simple day off.

Let’s break down this workout from one punch man
Now this is going to involve some workout science. If you are looking to increase your core strength altogether with endurance and you hope to get a nice fat reduced body? Then this Workout will be the best workout from an anime series for you. However, since these are words from an anime series, I am going to make it simple and give a less intense workout for anyone to try.
Push ups: Now first off, let’s talk about the push ups. Now this exercise will be perfect for your shoulders, chest, uppper abs, delts and also traps. With a 100 push ups, its like doing 20 set push up with 5 repetitions. But here, there is no resting time. So for a normal humans like us, a simple 20 set push up with 5 repetitions has to be done in intervals or anyone can try it 50 push ups in the morning and 50 in the afternoon.
Sit-ups: Now let’s move on to the sit-ups. Now sit-ups are going to be perfect for your abs, lower back and your obliques. For a beginner, 100 sit-ups would be really hard, so my advice would be to try to do 20 at the beginning and gradually increase the count. You will be able to do 100 sit-ups in no time.
Squats: Now moving on to Squats, this exercise will increase your strength in Quads, hips, calves, knees, hamstring and also your back. Now this is not like doing squats in the gym with weights on, this is different and this is body weight squats and this can be done easily without any equipment. If a 100 is too much at the beginning, anyone can reduce it to 30 and move on from there.
10 Km Run: Now for the 10 km run everyday, this is a hard thing to do for a normal person who isn’t trained. So what I would recommend is that, do a interval running training. This way, you can increase the length you run each day as fast as possible.
Are there any benefits?
A strong heart: Since running pumps blood through out your body, eventually this exercise will make your heart muscles strong and a good flow of oxygen will reach every part of your body.
Endurance: What these constant workout will do to your body besides a good strong heart is that your endurance level will rise drastically.
No-gym: Since these all workouts said by Saitama are all body weight training, there can be no excuse of saying that you don’t have time, money or a place. Anyone can do these workouts at home without any trouble.
Results and things to consider
As humans, we can change ourselves. This was the most profound thing said by Saitama at that moment. And eat three meals per day.
In order for your body to grow, you must be give your body the necessary nutrients. And well balanced diets will go a long way.
Since these are fairly simple workouts, anyone can do this. However sometimes complications can arose. So you should always consult a professional before doing any workout.
In conclusion, one punch man gives everyone a challenge. And if anyone wants to be strong in body and mind, you should try out this workout.
