It’s time to train like the legendary assassin from Universe 6: Hit!
We have seen tons of Dragon Ball Z Inspired Workouts at SHJ that fill up a big portion of our Anime Workouts Database, and now we’re even prepping for an all time most powerful Dragon Ball listicle as well.
We’ll talk more about Hit and his powers when we get to his workout routine research section, but we’ve also seen a few other Dragon Ball Super characters from Universe 6 already as well.
But for now our focus will be to train like this assassin, so be ready to get FAST.
Real Name: Hit
Anime: Dragon Ball Super
Hit is actually super tall compared to our normal DBZ characters.
Goku and Vegeta come in nearly a foot shorter and only Toppo and Jiren rank up to him in height!
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.

Hit 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.

Hit 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 share a bit of a biography for hit right from his Wiki Fandom, where we’ll also be pulling information about his powers and abilities.
Here’s what they have to tell us:
Hit, renowned as “Never-Miss Hit” and as the “Legendary Hitman” is the legendary assassin of Universe 6. In addition, he also later on becomes the leader for Team Universe 6.
One of my favorite episodes in Dragon Ball Super is when Goku actually secretly hires Hit to assassinate him (Goku hires a Hit on himself) in order to train and be challenged enough to take on the legendary assassin’s abilities.
To give you an idea of how strong he is, here’s a snippet of information by how Hit felt within The Tournament of Destroyers:
Hit is the ace warrior of Universe 6, having been picked for his team in both the Tournament of Destroyers and Tournament of Power, being the strongest among them at the Tournament of Destroyers. In the anime, even after witnessing Kale’s newfound Legendary Super Saiyan form, Hit was still considered the strongest of Team Universe 6. Unlike most fighters who can manipulate their ki, Hit rarely relies on energy blasts and instead he focuses on close-range hand-to-hand combat. He wears his long flowing jacket and keeps his hands in his pockets to better mask his sudden movements. When holding back, his style of combat revolves mainly in a basic but solid fighting stance. Once serious, his style becomes more akin to Wing Chun. His main tactic in battle is precise and quick jabs to various vital points or a quick finished with his Phoenix Eye Fist. Hit’s true strength lies in his killing techniques, as such his efficiency is greatly impeded when he refrains from killing.
During the Tournament of Destroyers, Hit was completely unimpressed even by the stronger people in the tournament; he wasn’t truly interested, relaxing with his eyes closed, until he witnessed Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue form. Once facing Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, Hit effortlessly overpowered Vegeta (while not powered up in the manga), swiftly defeated him without much effort – however, this was largely because Vegeta had no knowledge of Hit’s Time-Skip and Vegeta’s repeated use of Super Saiyan Blue drained the majority of his energy.
Hit’s speed and power is unrivaled, so we’re going to be training to replicate that.
We’ll be training to be strong, of course, but for the most part we’ll be increasing the rep count that we’re used to and training to allow our muscles to not only reach fatigue with a lower load, but also to endure the amount of speed we’re going to be training for.
This will be muscle endurance, strength and speed training all in one to become the legendary assassin of Universe 6.
