Coming off our new Toge Inumaki Inspired Workout this week Kento Nanami’s is actually pretty exciting.
Nanami’s is actually going to wrap us up with enough Jujutsu Kaisen Inspired Workouts to get our first listicle based on the most popular characters from the show thus far.
From there we’ll even be able to add a mini workout database devoted to just the shows inspired workouts within a sub section our our Anime Workouts Database.
We’ve seen this with other shows like DBZ, MHA, Naruto and ATLA; but it’s going to be exciting as we add more like Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer and One Piece (which will definitely be the next three).
Kento Nanami Stats:
Real Name: Kento Nanami
Height: 6’0 1/2
Anime: Jujutsu Kaisen
Kento Nanami comes in at what I’d consider to be above average height among anime male characters we’ve seen.
Of course there are some anomalies like All Might, Endeavor and giants like them – but 6’0 is actually quite tall.
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.

Kento Nanami 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.

Kento Nanami 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’ll be pulling right from Kento Nanami’s Wiki Fandom to learn a bit about him and see what we’re going to be working with to build out his routine.
Here’s how they begin with his initial bio:
Kento Nanami is a supporting character in Jujutsu Kaisen. He was a former student of Tokyo Jujutsu High where he was an underclassman of Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto. Nanami initially left Jujutsu High after graduating to become a salaryman, but returned four years later to continue working as a jujutsu sorcerer.
While working as a Jujutsu High sorcerer, Nanami was ranked grade 1 and operated primarily out of the Tokyo campus. With Satoru’s introduction, he also became a close mentor to Yuji Itadori.
When they begin to talk about his overall powers and abilities we learn it’s actually a LONG list.
We do usually break it down by overall powers and then into specific abilities with our Jujutsu Kaisen characters, and we’ll do that for Nanami, but you’ll need a warning at the actual length of his overall powers section.
Check it out:
Overall Skill: Nanami is a model example of what a grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer should be. Yuji and Takuma Ino both look up to Nanami for his demeanor when actively approaching a difficult situation as well as his incredible skill when it comes down to solving it. Satoru Gojo entrusted Nanami with looking after Yuji due to these traits as well and it paid off well for Yuji’s growth. Ino, a powerful grade 2 sorcerer, approaches every tough decision with “what would Nanami do” in mind because he believes Nanami always handles things the right way.
When it comes to combat ability, Nanami is capable of fighting on par with special grade cursed spirits such as Mahito. While Mahito was still in the infancy of his existence, Nanami was able to keep up in several of the exchanges. With a lack of information on Mahito’s ability, Nanami suffered a direct blow to his soul but was still able to survive, something no one Mahito faced before had been able to do. Mahito himself considered Nanami to be exceptionally strong and a worthy opponent, far stronger than the average sorcerer.
Oh, but that’s not all. That just goes to show you that we’re talking about an extremely strong character.
They actually go on to continue with:
During the Shibuya Incident, Nanami showcased his leadership ability alongside great intellect and fighting strength. Upon learning about Satoru’s sealing, Nanami was able to deduce what would be the best move for his team and helped carry out Mechamaru’s rescue plan without delay. Understanding that Kiyotaka Ijichi and the managers are crucial for communication in a large-scale mission, Nanami went alone to put protocols for the operation in place while also delegating the others on another task.
Following finding Ijichi injured, Nanami was quickly able to track down the culprit, Haruta Shigemo, and beat the curse user senseless without so much as suffering a scratch. This performance in particular was stunning to Nobara Kugisaki, a very capable grade 3 student. Watching Nanami fight helped her understand that he’s on a completely different level and that embodies what it means to be a true grade 1 jujutsu sorcerer.
Alongside Naobito and Maki Zenin, Nanami was also able to fight the special grade curse Dagon. They were able to overpower him mostly thanks to Naobito’s incredible speed backed up by Nanami’s support. However, not even the two grade 1 sorcerers were able to exorcise him.
Trapped inside Dagon’s Domain, Nanami was unable to take any offensive position whatsoever. However, he miraculously survived Dagon’s endless stream of Death Swarm shikigami for over a minute, something that surprised him the domain’s caster. Once Megumi arrived and nullified Dagon’s automatic hit with his own Domain, Nanami focused on protecting Megumi and was easily able to dispatch any shikigami that tried to attack the student despite his injuries.
Oh, and that’s not all.
We still have to go through some of the specifics about Kento Nanami’s powers and abilities.
Instead of giving you each sections paragraph and explanation I’ll just break it down into a quick bullet list for us to easily work with:
- Master Swordsman
- Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant
- Enhanced Durability
- Super Precision and Technique
- Great Tactical Intellect
So while he is one of the strongest Jujutsu Kaisen characters we’ve seen, he actually isn’t strong in pure strength.
For this we’re going to be doing a bit of a mix of weight training, calisthenics and endurance that we might see with an MMA fighter – while also putting a big focus on core work.
Think you’re ready for that?

Kento Nanami Workout Routine
3-5 days per week
We’re going to working with a PPL split of Push/Pull/Legs that work around weight training and calisthenics with a focus on core and some light endurance work to start or finish our session, but we’ll also have one day of pure endurance and another of pure high intensity interval training to really step it up a notch.
