We already have five Jujutsu Kaisen characters within our Anime Workouts Database, and we’re getting another three this week.
Before you know it we’ll have our own mini-workout-database just for our Jujutsu Kaisen inspired workouts!
We have a TON of requests for workouts inspired by Jujutsu Kaisen characters, but of the handful I personally wanted to research and write up a Panda routine, which is why I selfishly prioritized him this time around.
Real Name: Panda
Anime: Jujutsu Kaisen
Panda is huge…naturally.
But, even at his 6’7 he doesn’t hit the very top of our list – although we’ll give him the top RANGE among other characters (especially anime characters) 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.

Panda 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.

Panda 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 get us started we’re going to be pulling right from Panda’s Wiki Fandom page. They give us a fairly brief bio, but at least it’s better than what we’re used to with our My Hero Academia characters!
Here’s how they start us off:
Panda is a supporting character in Jujutsu Kaisen and a protagonist in the Prequel Series. Not an actual panda, he is an Abrupt Mutated Cursed Corpse created by principal Masamichi Yaga and attends Jujutsu High as a second-year student.
Although his bio is quite short, we get what we need, and then they move on into plenty of information in his powers and abilities section.
Starting off with his overall abilities, here’s what they say:
Overall Skill Level: Panda is a grade 2 sorcerer and an Abrupt Mutated cursed corpse, the most advanced of his kind. With a natural affinity for jujutsu, Panda is capable of exorcising curses based solely on his physical abilities. He is highly intelligent and able to think one step ahead of his opponents in a fight. Panda’s physiology in also provides a unique challenge in battle. The only way to take him down is by destroying the cores of cursed energy that act as his heart. Additionally his body is extremely durable and he’s capable of using jujutsu protection to reinforce it as well.
From there they go on to tell us about his strength, endurance, and even intellect:
Enhanced Strength: Due to the size and sturdiness of his body, Panda is naturally very physically strong. He can exorcise curses with simple blows, effortlessly carry allies on his back, and run clean through walls as a few examples of his base strength. Panda has also proven to be a very powerful puncher, able to stun Aoi, an exceptionally durable fighter, with a right hook as well as batter Mechamaru, a metal cursed corpse, with straight punches.
Enhanced Endurance: Panda’s physiology as a cursed corpse allows him to absorb high amounts of damage. He was able to easily brush off Mechamaru’s Ultra Cannon and even took the brunt of his opponent’s strongest ability and survived.
High Tactical Intellect: Panda was highly intelligent from a young age due to the circumstances of his creation and his education under Principal Yaga. In a fight, Panda is highly analytical and tries to stay one step ahead of his opponent. Even Suguru Geto, a sorcerer with immense tactical reasoning, was surprised by Panda’s cleverness in battle. Against Mechamaru, Panda consistently thought about every move before he made it. He was able to calculate the angle of Mechamaru’s cannon so it wouldn’t also hit his allies. In that same battle, Panda fooled Mechamaru multiple times by faking an injury to his cores and won that fight because his opponent underestimated his intelligence.
So, if it wasn’t obvious enough: this one is going to be strength focused!
Sure, we’ll tack in some endurance work and even some intensity training here and there with some sprinkles to help with our jujutsu – but for the most part we’re looking to get big and strong like Panda in this one.
Be ready to lift heavy at a high volume!
