Momo Yaoyorozu’s workout is a perfect fit for this anime themed week.
After seeing Rock Lee’s workout from Naruto it felt only fitting to jump back to My Hero Academia.
Just behind them is Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and even Demon Slayer, but our anime section grows weekly!
So I’m pretty confident Momo will be a hit as well.
Momo Yaoyorozu Stats:
Real Name: Momo Yaoyorozu
Momo Yaoyorozu is actually much taller than I expected.
Not that I was basing that on an educated basis judging her height compared to Deku’s in the show, but just because anime characters tend to be much shorter.
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!

Momo Yaoyorozu Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hulk 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!
Curious where over a hundred celebs fall in their dietary choices ranging from High Protein and Keto to Vegetarian, Vegan and Intermittent Fasting? Want exclusive celeb meal plans? Check this out.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Momo Yaoyorozu 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.
To start with a quick bio for Momo, her Wiki Fandom states:
Momo Yaoyorozu also known as the Everything Hero: Creati is the Vice President of Class 1-A at U.A. High School, where she got in through official recommendations and is training there to become a Pro Hero.
And although this one isn’t a cosplay routine, I do think it’s relevant to share Momo’s appearance information considering she looks much different than many of the other students.
Here’s what her Wiki explains:
Momo is a fairly tall teenage girl with a rather mature physique, considering her age. She has long black hair that is normally tied into a spiky ponytail with a large strand hanging on the right side of her face and onyx eyes that point slightly inwards, which seems to resemble a cat.
They move on to her ability section, which in addition to her mature appearance, is what we’ll be basing our routine on.
Here’s what they have to say about her abilities (which don’t even include her Quirk yet!):
Overall Abilities: Momo is a recommended student, which implies that she must have a very good level of skill. Her abilities earned her 1st place in the Quirk Apprehension Test, an impressive feat considering almost all her classmates had at least one superhuman result and the end result was cumulative of all eight tests. Momo was able to hold her own against Fumikage Tokoyami, for short period of time during the U.A. Sports Festival .
- Bukijutsu: Momo can skillfully wield several weapons to use against her opponent, for both offensive and defensive purposes, primarily bo staffs. Her bojutsu is quite remarkable, which allows her to knock out a large group of villains, as shown during the assault on the U.S.J.
Genius Intellect: Momo is ranked to have S-class intelligence, being a genius. Her analytical skills are strong, easily devising strategies and plans in battle and urgent situations, which she has no trouble putting in motion due to her Quirk’s versatility. Academically speaking, Momo is highly efficient, having been ranked 1st place in the mid-terms of her class, and understanding the composition of anything she wishes to create using her Quirk. The latter is a complicated task for even the simplest materials. Regardless, Momo commonly uses the objects from her Quirk to provide auxiliary support for her allies, as well as blindside her opponents, making her a very crafty individual, and reliable comrade. What she lacks in raw strength and destructive power, she makes up for with her ingenuity. When she was paired with Shoto Todoroki, against Eraser Head for the Final Exams, she realized that the Eraser Hero’s Erasure Quirk has a smaller time limit due to the injury he received from Nomu, and capitalized on that small interval to blindside Eraser Head and secure victory for her and Shoto.
They continue a bit more in regards to her genius level intellect, explaining more examples, and even mentioning her teaching ability and musical talent, but we’ll move forward into her quirk and skip that extra section considering (while it’s awesome) it won’t help us build out our routine.
Here’s more information about her Quirk, which doesn’t actually help us much either, but is definitely awesome and totally needs to be shared:
Creation: Momo’s Quirk gives her the ability to create any non-living material/object from her exposed skin by transforming the molecular structure of her fat cells. In order to create something, she needs to understand the molecular structure of what the material/object is made of.
The more she eats, the more material she has to work with, so she needs considerable food ingestion for her Quirk to be effective. However, it takes her a longer period of time and more skin exposed to create large objects, to the point where she forces large objects through her costume leaving it shredded, though she claims she can just repair it.
This aspect of her Quirk is also possibly the reason for her slim figure, as she constantly burns her body’s fat to create objects. It is also possible that this is a big weakness, in that if she creates too much without replacing her calories, she can become weak and possibly anemic.
The one thing to note here is that she is literally burning fat from her body to create objects off of her.
Something we sure as heck aren’t going to be able to replicate.
That being said, we will have to make up for those calories that Momo is burning by either eating less or being more active with cardio or other variations of training.
So get ready to be active!

Long Steady Cardio Training:
I prefer to vary my training when I’m going to do some longer steady cardio work.
For that reason I generally suggest doing 10-20 minutes of any of the following options up until completing a total of 60+ minutes:
- Row Machine
- Treadmill Walk/Run
- Bike (Higher Intensity)
High Intensity Interval Training:
For your HIIT training you’re going to be performing it the same for each variation, but with different requirements.
This can be added into your overall 60 minutes required for the section above, or done in variations of 10-20 minutes for a total of 30-45 on its own.
Here’s how you’ll be formatting it:
- 1 Minute ON: Sprint, or High Intensity Work (RPMs above 100 while level 7-10, for example)
- 1 Minute OFF: Cooldown for 60 seconds and prep for your next sprint
Here’s some great options for HIIT:
- Row Machine
Celebrity Workouts with Circuits:
- Paige WWE Workout for CrossFit WODs
- Kevin Hart Workout for Alternative CrossFit WODs
- Kristen Bell Workout for Quick Circuit Addons
- The Spartan 300 WODs
- And, of course, TONS of other spread throughout the site (Check out our Workout Database).
We also have a handful of workouts you can throw into your training for quick “snacks” like we’ve seen in the David Beckham Workout.
10 Minute or Less Workouts:
