“Saido chesto” first appeared in the How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? manga series, which was first released in Japanes on December 19th, 2016.
However, the phrase didn’t garner a large popularity until the anime adaptation of the series was first aired in July 2019.
“Saido chesto” was featured in the theme song of the anime.
“Saido chesto” became a popular source for video parodies and image macro memes, mixing both the theme song of How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? and its characters.
Starting in September 2019, these parodies circulated on sites like YouTube as well as 9GAG, DeviantArt and Twitter.
