Along with Black Clover I recently started watching Blue Exorcist as well.
So Rin Okumura’s workout will be joining our Asta workout from last week!
Although, I’ll tell you what: prepping to write this one actually spoiled some of the show for me, BUT, also made me much more excited for where it’s headed.
Not to mention I also noted in our Yumeko Jabami workout this week that Netflix shared that over 100 million households have watched at least one anime show this past year.
Which is INCREDIBLE for The SHJ Army, because Netflix will continue to give us more and more characters to draw inspiration from!
Rin Okumura Stats:
Real Name: Rin Okumura
Weight: 138 lbs.
Anime: Blue Exorcist
Rin, although only 16, is right around the average height we generally see for male anime characters.
that isn’t average among male celebrities or other characters, but more-so anime specifically.
Wolverine was 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.

Rin Okumura 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.

Rin Okumura 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.
Like a lot of our anime characters, I want to start off with a brief biography before jumping into his powers, abilities and other research.
Here’s what Rin’s Wiki Fandom tells us about him:
Rin Okumura is the son of Satan and the elder, fraternal twin brother of Yukio Okumura. Studying as an Exwire at True Cross Academy, Rin desires to become a Knight Meister and defeat his biological father.
So we have the son of Satan training to become a Knight Meister to attempt to beat his father….the devil!
We’ll be training to not only unlock Rin’s physique and overall aesthetic, but also to duplicate his devotion to his own training as well.
In the shown you see him go to a three day training camp, train with swords, train privately on his roof, secretly every morning, and repeatedly trying to master his flames.
You should expect to see high intensity AND high volume for this one; because Rin will not give up and not hold back on his training.
As for his actual powers and abilities, here’s what his Wiki Fandom tells us:
Rin is a highly capable combatant who, under the right circumstances, has been able to defeat a number of Upper Level Demons, and even one the Eight Demon Kings.
Flames of Satan: Also known as the Blue Flames, he inherited the flames of his biological father, which as suggested are blue. Due to his demon heart being sealed in the demon-slaying blade, Kurikara, his demonic powers were sealed too, however, in an erratic emotional state, small blue flames are released even when the sword was sheathed. Rin later started training to control his blue flames to ensure he isn’t consumed and reverts to his feral state when he draws Kurikara. Despite his improved control, Rin is still prone to his flames leaking out in rage. After Kurikara, which contained his demonic heart broke, his flames were released at full power burning him, before healing and regressed into his feral demon form, but he soon returned to his state of mind.
- Demon Form: Whenever Rin draws his sword, which acts both as his “heart” and the source of his demonic power, he gains access to his true power. Likewise, this also puts Rin at a severe disadvantage, as he does not keep his tail concealed, which is one of his main weaknesses, and it exposes his heart, meaning that if Kurikara is destroyed while it is drawn, Rin will die. Kurikara later broke due to Satan who talked through Yukio, causing Rin to remain in his demon form with his heart exposed.
Knight: Rin is an aspiring Knight Meister, and as such employs a demonic sword as his main weapon, which in his case with his Kurikara. Rin eventually gains enough skill and control with his flames and sword to be able to perform various techniques with his Flames of Satan.
Enhanced Strength: Per his demonic heritage, Rin has incredible strength, giving him the strength to, even as a child, break someone’s ribs with a mere punch.
And that long list is with MASSIVE cuts to abilities that I didn’t find specifically relevant.
For this one we’ll be really zooming in and utilizing the fact that he has enhanced strength and he’s a Knight in training.
Top that with the fact that he takes his own training to new levels and we’re looking to match his strength, training, physique and overall aesthetic!
Get ready for the volume.
