This is definitely not the first time we’re seeing Tanjiro Kamado here at SHJ.
That being said: I thought it was time for an update for our favorite character.
Tanjiro has made the list of The Most Popular Demon Slayer Characters AND our list of The Most Powerful Demon Slayer Characters of All Time, and he’s still one of the most requested characters we get within The Demon Slayer Universe.
We’ve seen our Tanjiro Kamado Cosplay Inspired Workout and also recently got our Tanjiro Kamado Jump Rope Inspired Circuit Workout, but now it’s time to take a jump back and give him an original full week or training based on his overall power level and aesthetics like we do for the majority of our characters.
It’s only fair considering you guys consider him a MUST within our Demon Slayer Workout Placement Quiz!
Tanjiro Kamado Stats:
Real Name: Tanjiro Kamado
Weight: 134 lbs.
Anime: Demon Slayer
Tanjiro is actually quite short, although not THAT short in comparison to many of the male anime characters we’ve been seeing here at SHJ.
And, to be fair, I’m allowed to call him short being that I’m right around the same height as him myself.
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.

Tanjiro Kamado Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero.**
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.

Tanjiro Kamado 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.
Even though we have already seen Tanjiro here at SHJ a few times we’re still going to get started by pulling our initial research right from his Wiki Fandom page to break down who we’re working with and more about his overall powers and abilities.
They start us off with his initial bio section that goes like this:
Tanjiro Kamado is the main protagonist of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. He is a Demon Slayer in the Demon Slayer Corps, who joined to find a remedy to turn his sister, Nezuko Kamado, back into a human.
Before he became a Demon Slayer, his family was slaughtered by the Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji, while his younger sister, Nezuko, was turned into a Demon.
Moving into his overall powers and abilities we get into a section with a TON of information.
Here’s how they lead into his abilities:
Overall Abilities: From the start, although not a part of the Demon Slayer Corps, Tanjiro was able to catch Giyu Tomioka, the Water Hashira off guard. After starting his training in the Water Breathing, he has become strong enough to take on multiple demons including a former Lower Rank 6, Kyogai. After recalling the Hinokami Kagura, he learned from his father as a child, he would’ve defeated Rui, Lower Rank 5, if Rui hadn’t cut off his own head prior. After awakening his Demon Slayer Mark and training even further, Tanjiro has proven to be able to hold his own against even the Upper Rank like Akaza, with Giyu even comparing his strength to that of a Hashira. After getting poisoned by Muzan and having a mysterious vision of his ancestors, Tanjiro was able to fight against Muzan by himself, who had just single-handedly defeated all five remaining Hashira along with Zenitsu and Inosuke. Muzan expressed feelings of unease towards Tanjiro due to the similarities between him and Yoriichi.
That is some EXTREME power.
From there they go on to break down his physical abilities like we saw done for Yoriichi:
Enhanced Strength: After his training at Sagiri Mountain, Tanjiro has gained enhanced strength and speed and has demonstrated a great use of it, as seen when he jumped twice his height over the Hand Demon, who killed Sakonji’s disciples, during Final Selection. His forehead is noted to be unusually sturdy as well since he’s able with it to injure Sanemi Shinazugawa, the Wind Hashira and even momentarily stun Gyutaro, Upper Rank 6.
Immense Speed & Reflexes: Tanjiro can keep up with Akaza, Upper Rank 3 and an incredibly fast Demon, who can move faster than the eye can see, during their second encounter. After awakening his Demon Slayer Mark, Tanjiro’s speed increases even further to the point that even Akaza couldn’t react in time and process his movements. After awakening his Demon Slayer Mark, Tanjiro gains extremely sharp reflexes, dodging and reacting to attacks from both Akaza and the Demon King, Muzan Kibutsuji. This has also been displayed when he got extremely incensed, when he becomes capable of easily dodging and countering Daki’s attacks while she is in her weaker form, without Daki being able to injure him at all.
Immense Stamina & Endurance: Tanjiro has amazing stamina and endurance. In the Sunrise Countdown Arc, he lasted one of the longest, almost an hour exerting himself to the physical and mental limit, while still being able to tolerate and suppress all the damage and injuries he sustained from Muzan Kibutsuji’s blood attacks and his powerful physical blows.
From there they also go on to talk about his genius level intellect, enhanced senses, Demon Slayer Mark and a bunch more that makes him one of the strongest Demon Slayer characters.
We may not be training to become Yoriichi, but Tanjiro is on his way to that level.
That’s another reason I specifically paired the two in the same week – so that we can work in unison on the training procedures but make ample swaps between the two for the individual characteristics of each.
Think you’re going to be able to handle the volume that we trained when looking to become the most powerful Demon Slayer character of all time!?

Tanjiro Kamado Workout Routine
5 days per week
For this one we’re going to be training similar to the way we did for Yoriichi but instead of a 3 day split and 2 circuit days we’re going to be working with a 4 day split and one long endurance training day. The style of our actual weight training days will look very similar, though – so get ready for volume and intensity!
