Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru? Wiki

Cossack Squats is the eighty-sixth chapter of the manga Dumbbell Nan-Kilo Moteru?.



Koyo Girls' Academy; a stereotypical all-girls' school. Gina Boyd; a stereotypical Russian school girl in Japan. But she's been acting a bit broken, today, so Hibiki and friends start interrogating her for why. Turns out, Gina's stereotype is falling a bit flat and she needs to spice it up, these days! Pirozhki? Maybe some Russian sambo? No! Cossack dancing, of course! But what's Cossack dancing? How do you do it? Doesn't everybody Cossack dance already?

Exercise Learned

The exercise focused on in this chapter are Cossack Squats, which are a variation of squats that requires the athlete to lean to one side and then the other, placing most (or all) of their weight under the stress of one bent leg while keeping the other extended in-place.


  • "The Cossack Cuties," an idol group formed of Russian girls, makes their appearance in this chapter, repeating the ongoing joke of how Gina's idol career is constantly, and consistently, upstaged by other Russian girls performing her exact gimmick moments before she gets to. Specifically, Cossack dancing.
