How to Level Up Athletics

Gained by punching or using melee weapons, as well as jumping. By equipping a weapons with a high attack speed (like a katana), you can mash the attack button for about 35 seconds to gain 20 EXP.

An extremely easy exploit for leveling up Athletics quickly involves entering berserk mode, and then rapidly attacking with a melee weapon equipped. This will allow you to level up roughly once a minute for lower levels. An Operating System with a long duration, such as the Militech Berserk MK.5 is best for this.
