Forearm Training is the seventy-sixth chapter of the manga Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru?.



After the girls return back from their Kyoto school-trip, we see what was going on at the Silverman Gym in their absence.

Director Deire is filming a tv-movie period drama inside the gym called "The Story Behind the Curtain" with Mei in a leading role. Jason, Tadakatsu and the background machos also appear as extras. Despite period-dramas normally being stage productions for drama, the entire film seems to be filled with anachronisms and weightlifting instead. Despite the eccentricity of the show, it seems to be helping promote Deire's job and launch Mei's career.

Exercise Learned
