We have actually seen a few other Fairy Tail characters already, so it’s a little strange we’re just now getting our Natsu Dragneel Workout!
Natsu Draneel Stats:
Weight: 140 lbs.
Real Name: Natsu Dragneel
Anime: Fairy Tail
Natsu isn’t exactly that tall, and he’s fairly light as well.
Although we have seen some anime characters who are much shorter; so we’re used to it by now.
Vegeta were tied Wolverine for the shortest spot among comic characters we’ve seen at 5’3, prior to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming in at 5’2, (and Gimli even shorter) – but Damian Wayne (Robin) is only 5’4. Goku isn’t that tall either, though, standing only 5’7, with Miles Morales only an inch above him.
We’ve had Superman and Eddie Brock’s Venom at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, and Carnage at 6’1. Thor and Cyborg are towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, Bane at 6’8, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5, and Black Manta at 6’4.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Natsu Dragneel 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!

Natsu Dragneel 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 get us started, here’s a little bit of information about Natsu Dragneel from his short bio on his Wiki Fandom page (which we’ll be using to pull the information needed to build this entire routine):
Natsu Dragneel is a first generation Slayer Fire Dragon Slayer and the captain of Team Fairy Tail. He is the younger brother of Zeref Dragneel, who had died originally 400 years ago, having been revived as Etherious and become the former Tartar leader as END (Etherious Natsu Dragneel). Fairy Tail Warcraft Age and the love interest of Lucy Heartfilia
Natsu also has a TON of powers and abilities.
For this one we’ll actually be revolving the routine around both his strengths (powers and abilities) and his overall aesthetic and appearance.
As you can tell by his pictures (and of course if you’ve watched the show), Natsu has six pack abs and a tone of toned muscles.
So we have our work cut out for us…
Here’s how his Wiki begins describing Natsu’s overall appearance:
Natsu is a lean, muscular young man of average height with a slightly tan skin tone, black eyes, spiky pink-colored hair, and has abnormal sharp canines; Natsu has a scar on the right side of his neck, hidden by his scarf. He also has a cross-shaped scar on the left side of his abdomen, a result of the two fatal wounds dealt to him during his several altercations with the Rogue Cheney of the future. Natsu’s guild mark is red and is located just below his right shoulder.
Lean and muscular sounds about right.
That’s what we’ll be shooting for here.
As for the fun part, Natsu Dragneel’s powers and abilities, his main ability comes from his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic.
If you want to see all his magic and more about his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic (and Demon Form, for example), his Wiki page has a ton of information.
Being that I’m unable to teach you any magic (I do wish I could, though), we’ll be working with his physique as I said, and also his other abilities, which his Wiki describes as such:
Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Natsu is an extremely proficient unarmed fighter, often using his Dragon Slayer Magic in combination with punches, kicks, elbows, and even headbutts, to combat his opponents to great effect. Such skill is paired with amazing physical prowess: aside from his strength, Natsu has displayed high degrees of speed, agility and reflexes, enough for him to match melee-specialists of Paladin-level in battle.
Immense Strength: Natsu has shown on numerous occasions to possess a very high degree of strength, enough for him to perform a number of physical feats, among which are freely swinging around the mast of a ship as a makeshift weapon, doing the same with a palm tree he personally broke, bare-handed, shattering a billiard table and cracking most of its balls simply by hitting one of them with the cue, and stopping the gargantuan Dorma Anim’s foot, which was going to crush him and his fellow Dragon Slayers, all by himself, subsequently throwing the robotic Dragon off balance by rapidly pushing it away. Furthermore, he was capable of battling both Sting Eucliffe and Rogue Cheney, alone, while they were in Dragon Force, easily overpowering the two with his sheer physical strength.
Enhanced Speed: Natsu’s speed and reflexes are impressive, enough for him to close great distances in a blink of an eye and dodge swift attacks. It was shown that Natsu’s body is able to almost immediately react to anything that would attempt to attack him, and with his numerous experiences fighting against opponents in his muscle memory, he is capable of countering with forms and attacks almost instantly, something that many recognized immediately after they lost their fight to him.
Enhanced Reflexes: Natsu possesses fast reflexes, having been capable of dodging attacks from Erza, Laxus and, most recently, attacks from Sting.
Enhanced Agility: Natsu’s agility, balance, and bodily coordination are all enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
Immense Durability: Natsu has proven himself to be incredibly durable. He has managed to take continual, deadly assaults from foes and continue fighting. Such impressive resistance was first shown during his battle with Erigor, in which he received wounds from his opponent’s strong, sharp wind, and kept fighting on, nonetheless. Also, during his fight with Cobra, Natsu displayed a natural resistance against the Oración Seis’ member’s poison, described as lethal and corrosive. A true testament to his durability was shown when he blocked one of Sting Eucliffe’s strongest attacks, Holy Nova, with a single hand, and emerged completely unscathed from the enormous explosion that followed the impact.
Immense Endurance: Natsu’s physical stamina and endurance is extremely large, as he has been shown to fight multiple opponents at once without resting, and remain active for an entire day even when at low strength.
Which means we’ll definitely be having a nice mixture of strength training, speed training, and even endurance training.

Natsu Dragneel Workout Routine
5+ days per week
To become Natsu we’re going to be training roughly 5 or so days a week, contingent on how much extra training you want to add in with the add-on programming I provide. I’m giving 3 days devoted to strength training and then I recommend adding in speed and endurance work on top of that; although all of our parkour workouts have great calisthenics work that can be added in as well.
