We’re back for more My Hero Academia themed workout routines!
Apparently you guys love them that much.
BUT, you guys came right back at me with two more “must have” My Hero Academia characters: Katsuki Bakugo and Mina Ashido.
Mina Ashido Stats:
Weight: 115. lbs
Real Name: Mina Ashido
Mina Ashido is just shorter than what we’d consider average height among women at SHJ.
And by women I mean celeb females!
Supergirl and Erza Scarlet were our shortest at 5’5 before Wasp came in at 5’4 and Kale, Anna and Nina Williams matching her there. BUT, now we have Caulifla at 4’8 and Sailor Moon at 4’11! Katana is just behind her at 5’2.
But the average height for female celebrities on the site is generally more-so ranging from 5’4-5’6 – and our Black Widow is just above that at 5’7 with Spider-Gwen, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy at 5’8.
But don’t worry, either way.
Not only are these routines for all shapes and sizes – they also work for both men and women – regardless of the gender of the hero!

Mina Ashido Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hellboy may get something specifically different)**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
Guys like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hopper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting (something I use daily as well), Ariana Grande, Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
It’s all about sustainability.
AND, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, SuperHumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!

Mina Ashido Workout Routine Research
We’ve made it to “the fun part”.
And, if you don’t know by now, I say that every single time we get to the workout routine research section for character workouts.
This is where I get to break down the “how” and “why” of the workout we’re going to build based on the characters, in this case Mina Ashido’s, powers and/or abilities.
Here’s what her Wiki Fandom has to tell us about her overall abilities and her dancing abilities:
Overall Abilities: While the extent of Mina’s abilities have yet to be shown, she was capable of earning 9th place in the Quirk Apprehension Test. Despite having minimal combat abilities, Mina makes up for it with her Quirk proficiency and incredible reaction time. Out of all of Class 1-A’s female students, and most of the overall students in the said class, Mina has the best reflexes. She is capable of easily dodging Yuga Aoyama’s energy attacks, and and later on, melt several balls launched toward her at high speed with precise flicks. Mina also has a good handle on the applications of her Quirk, using the acid she creates to provide cover fire for her allies, and employing it in a variety of ways. She showcased her improvement during the Joint Training Battle, effectively switching between different acid-based techniques, while executing unorthodox, yet impeccable teamwork with Minoru Mineta.
Dancing Talent: Mina is extremely skilled at dancing, being capable of pulling breakdance moves with little effort. She can also teach an amateur into becoming a decent dancer in little time.
But her actual Quirk is:
Acid: Mina’s Quirk allows her to shoot out a corrosive liquid from within her body and can control the degree of solubility, as well as its viscosity. She can use it offensively but has shown utility as well such as melting handholds for herself to climb with. She is also known to secrete the acid from her feet in order to slide around. Mina has a limit of how long she can produce acid until her skin gradually loses its natural resistance to corrosion.
Which is something we can’t specifically build around.
BUT, we’ll be working around her overall abilities instead.
She doesn’t have much combat abilities, which is fine because we’ve had our fair share of MMA based heroes/character, but she DOES have incredible reflexes and reaction time to pair with her high speed dodges and attacks.
So we’re going to be looking to train in agility and endurance in order to be light on our feet and jump into the Mina Ashido role!
Think you can handle that?

Mina Ashido Workout Routine: Endurance Training Information
I’m creating this section instead of just leaving you with your 3-5 miles in the schedule because I want to share the importance of working your way up.
You do not have to start with a full fledged run, and you also don’t have to start with that distance.
It is completely fine to start small and build your way up and/or start by walking or walk/running, or any other variation you may prefer.
Mina Ashido Workout Routine: Alternative Training Methods
Mina Ashido also has exceptional dancing abilities.
We’ve seen some of the celebs on the site take some workout styled dance classes.
If you can hop in one of those classes, or take some other fun classes like Pilates, Spin, yoga, etc; those will work well with this simplistic style of training as well!
