Train like the Toji Fushiguro

For those who do not know who he is, Toji Fushiguro is a powerful anomaly in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen. He is known for possessing inhuman speed, strength, and senses despite having zero Cursed Energy. Toji Fushiguro is also known as the "Sorcerer Killer'' for his ability to efficiently take out powerful Jujutsu Sorcerers using his physical prowess and battle intelligence. That being said, Toji Fushiguro’s workout routine is going to be absolutely crazy. It is not your standard powerlifting or bodybuilding routine, but something much more intense, combining functional exercises and powerful movements. 

Let’s take a look at Toji Fushiguro’s workout routine.

Toji Fushiguro Overview

Yes, Toji Fushiguro is an anime character, and he is absolutely jacked, shredded, and powerful. It is said that he stands at 5’9”-6’2”. He is an immensely popular character from the anime/manga Jujutsu Kaisen, and is known very well not only for his lightning-fast speed as an athletic assassin but also for his aesthetically impressive and muscular physique. Understandably, many fans aspire to both look and perform like Toji. This is the inspiration behind the creation of a 4-day-a-week athletic bodybuilding plan designed to help you achieve just that.

While he is fictional, that does not mean we cannot workout like he would, in order to obtain a physique like his. That being said, in order to get massive, strong, and be functional, what exactly would you do?

Toji Fushiguro’s Workout

Paris Demers has come up with a Toji Fushiguro-inspired workout routine, which can be found right on Boostcamp. The program is structured as follows: across 4 days each week, you will engage in 2 athletic bodybuilding workouts and 2 athletic performance workouts, with 3 days allocated for rest and recovery.

During the days that are focused on athletic bodybuilding, you'll tackle full-body workouts that incorporate a range of functional movements aimed at muscle and strength development. On the athletic performance days, the focus shifts to exercises and drills that enhance explosive power, agility, and rotational strength.

The program spans 8 weeks, and is designed to gradually increase in intensity, ensuring you make consistent progress.

Rest Time Guidelines

Rest periods between lifts are absolutely essential to help you be prepared for the next set, so you can maximize what you are doing. For major compound exercises such as the barbell overhead press, back squats, and power cleans, it's recommended to rest for approximately 2-4 minutes between sets.

Supersets are also utilized in this program, which is where you will be performing two exercises back to back with no rest period. When it comes to the muscle-building and athletic performance supersets, allow yourself about a minute of rest between movements and rest for 1-3 minutes between each round of the supersets.

What Exercises are in the Toji Fushiguro Workout?

Toji Fushiguro’s workout includes a mix of exercises, from your standard compound and isolation exercises to functional movements that help with speed and explosive power. The Toji Fushiguro workouts include exercises such as: 

The Toji Fushiguro workout includes a mix of barbell and dumbbell movements, as well as bodyweight exercises. You are getting a true all around workout program that is helping you to build strength, size, and power. This differs from most workout programs that have you focusing on one of these aspects, rather than all of them at once.

Training Intensity Guidelines

Intensity is how hard you are going during the workouts, and the Toji Fushiguro workout is certainly an intense one. This program incorporates the standard RPE (Rating of Perceived Exertion) system to guide your intensity level during each set.

As far as the intensity and volume behind this workout, you will typically be around an RPE of 7 or 8, so it is definitely not for the faint of heart. Although the RPE is relatively high, you still are doing high volume, going from sets of 3 to 30 reps each workout, depending on the exercise that you are doing of course. For example, on power cleans you may doing sets of 3, but then on pogo jumps you may be doing 30 reps. 

When applying this system to explosive plyometric movements, such as kettlebell swings or power cleans, focus on the speed and explosiveness of the movement rather than counting reps until failure. For instance, if you're aiming for an RPE of 7 during a set of kettlebell swings, choose a weight that allows you to finish the set with about 3 reps left before you notice a significant decrease in speed and explosiveness in your movements. This approach ensures you're working at an appropriate intensity level to maximize the effectiveness of the exercise.

Warm Ups Are Essential

For a workout routine like this, you cannot begin the workout without a proper warm up. A proper warm up will help get the blood flowing and get you loosened up so your body is prepared to lift. The warm up exercises that are included in the Toji Fushiguro routine are as follows:
