We’re officially introducing Jujutsu Kaisen to SHJ.
And not only are we bringing it to SHJ, but it’s going to be the TWENTY FIFTH anime show with an inspired workout based on it featured at SHJ.
In the last few weeks we’ve been growing out our anime workouts more and more with the popularity for them being extremely clear among members.
We’ve recently seen Blue Exorcist, Black Clover, Gurren Lagann, Kakegurui and more!
Yuji Itadori Stats:
Real Name: Yuji Itadori
Weight: 176 lbs.
Anime: Jujutsu Kaisen
Yuji Itadori is right around the average height we’re used to see among anime character males.
Although he would fall into a shorter range compared to all character and celebrities we’ve seen.
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.

Yuji Itadori 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.

Yuji Itadori 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 us off I want to pull information for Yuji’s Wiki Fandom like we do for other characters.
It’ll be brief at the beginning, but don’t worry, I’ll be building on it with extra information being that I’m fairly new to Jujutsu Kaisen as well!
Here’s what they tell us about Yuji Itadori:
Yuji Itadori is the main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen. He is a first-year at Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
Not much information that we didn’t know, but at least we know we’re going to be working with characters from Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School….
What’s really going to matter here is Yuji’s powers and abilities, so I’ll start there and then move into his personality for those of you who want to know more like I do.
He actually has a decent size list for his powers and abilities:
Overall Skill: Yuji is famous for his superhuman physical abilities, earning him the nickname “The Tiger of West Junior High” before becoming a Sorcerer. As a vessel he has the exceedingly rare ability to contain Sukuna’s soul without any ill effects. This natural skill allows him to ‘perceive the contours of the soul’ and lets him harm Mahito.
Superhuman Strength: He is able to destroy walls with ease and can throw a lead ball with enough force to bend a soccer goalpost. Yuji has also been able to throw several cars in succession.
Enhanced Durability: Yuji’s durability surpasses the average Sorcerer – he was still able to fight the special-class curse after losing a hand and multiple fingers.
Enhanced Speed and Reflexes: He can finish a 50-meter track within 3 seconds. When students from Kyoto School tried to murder him, he was able to dodge the attacks of all five opposing Sorcerers.
Proficient Learner: Yuji is a curious person, tending to ask many questions to his instructor. He is also good at progressing – being quick at Satoru’s Movie Appreciation Training, and realize Aoi Todo’s guide quickly. According to Akutami, he is best at cooking among the trio of the First Years. Yuji has shown that he can easily master a weapon with a short amount of time.
Proficient Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Yuji is a skilled combatant that can make quick judgments and power blows. Yuji can make refined attack, like stopping his attack just before it hit and adjust his power within his fist. Yuji is also skilled in a martial arts style, Taido Martial Arts.
He is capable of performing a Knee Release. Which is an ancient martial arts technique that eliminates starting movements. Yuji is not only able to release his knees, but also his hips and shoulders, to instead of falling down, is able to guide himself to his opponent’s feet.
By combining the aforementioned technique with Taido Martial Arts, Yuji can perform a Manji Kick, where uses the momentum to throw his right leg upwards and land a kick to his opponent’s head. By adding Cursed Energy to this attack, it is able to harm Cursed Spirits.
Poison Resistance: Since Yuji is the host to Sukuna, he has a resistance to all kind of poisons. Yuji will feel the pain from the poison, but he is largely unaffected. This ability was first demonstrated during his fight with Junpei, when he could resist the poison from Moon Dregs.
Weapon Mastery: Yuji was not trained in the use of weapons, however, due to his physical power and intelligence, he can still master one quickly.
At first glance Yuji seems pretty powerful!
We’re going to be focusing in on:
- Superhuman Abilities
- Superhuman Strength
- Enhanced Durability
- Enhanced Speed and Reflexes
- Hand to Hand Combat
Which means Yuji is an extremely well rounded character!
We’re going to be using weight training for this one, but I’ll also incorporating calisthenics, parkour and mixed martial arts to get a little bit of everything (on top of our endurance work, of course); so don’t hesitate to utilize The Ultimate Calisthenics Workout and Guide if you need help scaling.
But, as promised, before we move into the workout routine for Yuji I do want to have a small section from his Wiki about his personality:
Yuji is a fair person who cares greatly for not only his comrades, but anyone he views as people with their own wills, despite how deep or shallow his connection to them is. He cares greatly for the “value of a life” and to this end he will ensure that others receive a “fair death”. He is easy to anger in the face of pure cruelty and unfair judgment of other people.
One of Yuji’s defining traits is his willingness to sacrifice himself for others, triggered by his grandfather’s last words to him to die surrounded by others. When Megumi and him were about to be killed by a curse, Yuji swallowed Sukuna’s finger in order to exorcise it and save them, despite just meeting Megumi for the first time.
So he’s not exactly Deku or Goku, but you can see how he makes a great protagonist to build the show around.
