I keep mentioning the fact that Demon Slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen are two of our quickest growing anime when it comes to character requests.
The SHJ Army wants more Demon Slayer Inspired Workouts!
At this rate we’ll be getting a Demon Slayer Mini-Workout Database within our Anime Workouts Database in no time.
This week I decided it’s time to bring in another powerful female to the growing list.
Shinobu Kocho Stats:
Real Name: Shinobu Kocho
Weight: 82 lbs.
Anime: Demon Slayer
Even for having the appearance of an 18 year old, Shinobu Kocho is extremely short and light.
She’s actually one of the shortest females we’ve seen at SHJ.
Supergirl and Erza Scarlet were our shortest at 5’5 before Wasp came in at 5’4 and Kale, Anna and Nina Williams matching her there. BUT, now we have Caulifla at 4’8 and Sailor Moon at 4’11! Katana is just behind her at 5’2.
But the average height for female celebrities on the site is generally more-so ranging from 5’4-5’6 – and our Black Widow is just above that at 5’7 with Spider-Gwen, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy at 5’8.
But don’t worry, either way.
Not only are these routines for all shapes and sizes – they also work for both men and women – regardless of the gender of the hero.

Shinobu Kocho 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.

Shinobu Kocho 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.
As always: we’re going to start by pulling from Shibobu Kocho’s Wiki Fandom to learn a bit about her before we move into specific powers and abilities that we can build a routine around.
Here’s what they have to say:
Shinobu Kocho is a major supporting character of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. She is a Demon Slayer of the Demon Slayer Corps and the current Insect Hashira.
When Shinobu was a child, she lived a happy life with her family, including her older sister, Kanae Kocho. One day, a Demon attacked their home and killed her parents, but she was saved by Gyomei Himejima and promised to join the Demon Slayer Corps to protect others from ever suffering the same fate as them.
For the sake of building this routine we’re actually going to be focusing in on her overall abilities and powers more-so than utilizing her appearance as a more cosplay buildout.
Here’s what her Wiki Fandom tells us about her overall strengths:
Overall Abilities: As a Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps, Shinobu is a very powerful swordsman. Despite not possessing the physical strength to cut off a Demon’s head common to that of an average Demon Slayer or even the superhuman abilities possessed by her fellow Hashira, Shinobu is nonetheless as dangerous and deadly as the rest of them. As the Insect Hashira, Shinobu utilizes an insect-based combat style.
So for this one we won’t be training for super-strength per se, but still well above average strength.
Actually, enough so for it to still be listed as one of her main powers:
- Enhanced Strength: Despite being the smallest member of the Demon Slayer Corps and thus having the weakest swing strength due to her small arms, Shinobu instead displays powerful thrust and stab strength, as the other Hashira notes that a single thrust from her sword could easily pierce a stone boulder in half. Her thrusting speed is also noted to be the fastest among her fellow Hashira.
- Immense Speed & Reflexes: Shinobu is one of the fastest humans in the series, being fast enough to easily evade and out-pace Demons, catching them by surprise. Doma, the Upper Rank 2, stated she might have been the fastest Hashira he had ever met.
- Immense Stamina & Endurance: In her battle against Doma, Shinobu sustained fatal injuries after inhaling his ice powder, destroying one of her lungs causing her to slowly die from blood loss. However, Shinobu still remained strong and continued to fight, a feat which surprised Doma.
These are the things we’re going to be training around.
They also make specific mention to how talented of a Swordsman she is, which is something we need to keep in mind while preparing as well:
- Master Swordswoman: Being a Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps, Shinobu is one of the most powerful and skilled swordswomen in the entire organization.
For this we’ll be using strength training, endurance, HIIT and even some added mixed martial arts and parkour if you have time for the extra training.
Think you can handle it?
