Similar art style and comedy. Both anime also has some nice muscles. =P

Muscles-focused all-female ecchi with actual helpful instructions, albeit with a shallow and whimsical storyline

Both anime have an educational theme, where Hataraku Saibou teaches you about human body while Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? is about strength training. 
report Recommended by Ayuki-chan
Both are high fan service anime about girls doing fitness. Dumbell Nan Kilo Moteru is more educational, as it actually tries to help you though. The shows both feature a likeable cast, a surprisingly complete and emotional story, that eventually the ecchi parts will just go in the background and you will start to care for the characters. Masterpieces, both!

If you enjoy strange catches to your anime with the cast focusing on one specific goal, and you don't mind a bit of whimsy and klutzy story-telling, you'll enjoy Zombieland Saga and Dumbbell. Both rely on silly humor and eccentric characters to drive the plot and generate interest in their viewers. I'd say Zombieland Saga is a better anime than Dumbbell, but nonetheless Dumbbell is worth checking out too. As girly as both series are, as well as odd, most viewers will enjoy both of these shows, and adore its unique characters.

Both animes focus on teenagers perfecting their skills. in Dumbell nan kilo moteru, its the exercising and working out, whereas in Shokugeki no soma, its cookery and cuisine. Both animes go in depth about informing accurately about the theme, in Dumbbell, various parts of the body, muscles, proper forms of exercises and in Food wars, different cuisines of the world. Its about teenagers being guided by the geniuses in their respective fields. Certain types of reaction of the characters are similar in both the animes which led me to draw the comparison in the first place.

Both anime despite being ecchi (which is a genre that many people don't like), yet it is absurdly funny, impossible not to laugh in one of the episodes. Great waifus, in one you learn everything about magic, in another you learn everything about gym All the characters are extremely charismatic, I could not expect less from these animes after I read the synopsis. SAIDO CHESTO!

Sports animes that have very cute and hot girls doing exercises that also have educational situations in teaching the intricates of the exercises/sport being shown in the series. Dumbbell is focused only on gym training and the correct way to doing that training to avoid injuries, it also presents a lot of tips to doing simple exercises without spending too much money. Harukana is rather centered on beach volley and the tactics/strategies the sport is played with more character development along the way. Both animes have comedic situations and very sexy situations without putting off the viewer at any moment. Highly recommended to people who like CGDCT  read more

While love is like a cocktail is a short series and isnt about working out, they both give out useful information on either alcohol or working out. featuring hot girls and a warm, calming atmospheric tone to relax throughout both shows without being too invested into them 
report Recommended by TGCMactar
Both of these shows are: -short -comedy -about a group of highschool girls -kinda ecchi/perverted humor  
report Recommended by Sugaminny
Both series are edutainment series that give a lot of helpful tips and info in their respective topics especially for beginners. Dumbbell not only shows training tips and exercise examples but also teaches snippets of health and anatomy like nutrition and muscle groups. Yuru Camp details many do's and dont's of outdoor camping particularly in the winter along with equipment recommendations and how to guides. These two shows deliver their information through the vehicle of fun, lighthearted comedy featuring cute anime girls. Dumbbell has ecchi themes (both of male and female) while Yuru Camp is a more cozy Iyashikei. If you want to take a break  read more

They are both in the subgenre of iyashikei with a group of high school girls doing a rather unexpected hobby with wholesome vibes and a fun learning environment. Dumbell nan kilo moteru teaches you how to start weightlifting in a safe and nonjudgemental environment in really simple, fun, and colorful ways. It actually made me excited to go to the gym and not afraid of not knowing the machines, form, or how to plan a workout. Loved it. Houkago Teibou Nisshi teaches you how to start fishing at the breakwater again in a safe and nonjudgemental environment in a super simple, fun, and descriptive way. I  read more

Both inspired a lazy bum like me to work out. They each also have hot anime babes. It's the perfect combo!!!

Both anime has a all female cast which are all beautiful and have their own personalities. Both anime also has some lesson, Dumbnell teach us how to exercise, and Sounan Desu ka teaches us about survival. Both anime are also funny as hell.

Both titles include characters (Machio, Kenshirou) who regularily tear their shirts when showing their muscles.

Ecchi comedy, female MC. Centered around female physicality. Kinda stupid but endearing MC. Both also are basically highschool girls doing pretty normal and innocent thing being portrayed in a ecchi manner.
