We’ve already had our Aang Workout Routine, so how about his youngest son Tenzin?!
After all, he is another airbender.
We actually hosted Aang’s and Korra’s Workout both in the same week and they completely blew up as members of The SHJ Army flooded to try them out.
Then Avatar was added to Netflix and we had a new surge of requests for more workouts.
But now we’re preparing for The Legend of Korra to make it’s way to Netflix as well!
Real Name: Tenzin
Show: Legend of Korra
There are some conflicting stats for Tenzin, but the one that came back with the clearest results came from a Legend of Korra height scale piece of art that put Tenzin around 6’2.
There was a conflicting piece that had him at a whopping 6’7, but 6’2 makes much more sense.
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.

Tenzin 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.

Tenzin 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.
For those of you who don’t already know: Tenzin is Avatar and Katara’s youngest child.
To expand on that we can take a look at what his Wiki Fandom has to tell us here:
Tenzin is the youngest child of Avatar Aang and Katara and the oldest living airbending master. He lives on Air Temple Island with the Air Acolytes, his wife Pema, and their four children: Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, and Rohan. During the resurfacing of airbending across the Earth Kingdom after the Harmonic Convergence of 171 AG, Tenzin and his family temporarily relocated to the Northern Air Temple. A calm and serious man, he represented the Air Nation on the United Republic Council in Republic City prior to its dissolution and was responsible for educating Avatar Korra in the art of airbending and spirituality.
Like his father Aang, whose workout we’ve already had at SHJ, Tenzin is also an airbender.
He is even an Airbending Instructor, Spiritual Mentor, and former Councilmen.
Other than his airbending, which I unfortunately cannot teach you, his Wiki Fandom lists his other abilities as such:
Tenzin is in excellent physical shape and has proven himself a highly nimble and evasive fighter. When the Equalists launched a sneak attack to capture him, he effortlessly dodged their initial assault with no wasted movement. Even when his hands were bound, he was able to calmly dodge all of a chi blocker’s close-range attacks. He also has excellent stamina, going for a ten-mile hike without tiring, and while defending the Northern Air Temple from the Red Lotus’ elemental masters, he displayed incredible physical resilience when being beaten by all four, sustaining severe injuries without losing consciousness.
Now this is what we’re going to be using to build our Tenzin workout!
We’ve had a handful of mixed martial arts workouts here at SHJ that I’ll be sharing below, but we’re also going to be working to build up Tenzin’s incredible stamina and speed.
They actually make specific mention to his stamina, stating: “He also has excellent stamina, going for a ten-mile hike without tiring,”.
I hope you like endurance training!
It won’t all come from hiking, obviously, but we’ll rather be switching it up with running, hiking, high intensity interval training, and other variations to get you toning and strong, but also resilient like Tenzin.
Rather than give you guys a yoga routine, which generally seems to be the best fit with many of our Avatar characters, we’ll be using basic calisthenics and simple movements to help with the toning as well.
Check out all The SHJ Programs and start unleashing your inner SuperHuman.
Amon Workout Routine
5+ days per week
I’m going to be giving you three days of base calisthenics and endurance training, resources for mixed martial arts and parkour for another 2-3 days of training, and some resources for meditation and yoga as well.

Tenzin Workout: MMA and Parkour Resources and Explanation
On Parkour/MMA training days you can choose to implement any additional training from these resources, OR you can utilize some of the resources I’ve already shared about by adding in more endurance work or even taking advantage of a longer yoga video.
