What does it mean to be a ninja? Well, you could don the traditional all black garb. Run around in the dead of night. Carry a katana on your back. But that’s not the kind of ninja I’m talking about. So what is ninja? Learn here how to be a ninja.

How to be a Ninja – Obstacle Traininghow to be a ninja

Ninja is a sport that gives standardized rules to the fun little challenges we used to dare each other to on the playground. It takes those challenges, knocks them up to the next level, and lines them up in one big obstacle course. So if you want to be a ninja, you need to train like one.

Most ninjas train at a ninja gym. Not sure where to find a ninja gym? Try out this ninja gym locator tool! But if you’d rather train on your own, that’s fine too. In fact, before ninja gyms became commonplace, most ninjas found ways to train at local playgrounds. Building your own equipment is also a viable option.

One of the best ways to prepare for obstacle training is to develop your body control. For this reason, gymnasts and traceurs (athletes that practice parkour) tend to do well in ninja. There are constantly new obstacles being created, and obstacles themselves aren’t really standardized, so the only way to get good at them is practice. However, a solid grasp of the fundamentals will make you more capable of understanding how to approach a new obstacle the first time you see it.

If you are looking to set up some obstacles at your house, check here for adult and advanced obstacles, or here for kid and beginner obstacles.

How to be a Ninja – Muscle Traininghow to be a ninja

Strength and muscle endurance is important. Like any sport, the use of certain muscles is emphasized more than others. It’s also important to note that growing muscles unnecessarily large will weigh you down. Notice that none of the best ninjas on American Ninja Warrior have massive bulging muscles. You want them to be dense, so that they aren’t filled with water. So if you want to learn how to be a ninja, don’t go to the gym with the intention of looking like a body builder.

Core

Perhaps the most important part of your body in regard to ninja is your core. The muscles that make up your core need to be strong for a vast majority of obstacles you may face on a course. The core is almost always being used to stabilize your upper body, keeping you in equilibrium. In particular, a well-developed core is needed on balance. It is also the primary method of controlling your body while hanging.

how to be a ninja

Sit ups and crunches are a good start, but if you are serious about strengthening your core, exercises from a bar hang (knees to elbows, toes to bar) will work muscles in your abdominal that floor exercises just won’t. Russian twists and windshield wipers will work your obliques, while back extensions will strengthen your lower back.

Upper Body

In terms of upper body strength, the area ninjas lack most is usually their forearm (grip) strength. The ability to hold your weight in a hanging position doesn’t take much. However hanging as your body is swinging, twisting or turning for the duration of an obstacle can be much more challenging. Sometimes, depending on the difficulty of the course, you will need to hang for multiple obstacles before you get a rest. So the focus of your training should be on forearm muscle endurance. To this goal, many ninjas take up rock climbing.

Controlling your body as you maneuver off the ground will become easier if you can hold a lock off (the highest part of a pull up). If you can hold a one arm lock off, all the better! This requires bicep and upper back muscle strength. While you may use free weights to develop your upper body, many ninjas agree that the best methods are to train mimicking the movements you will make in competition.

Lower body

how to be a ninjaThe warped wall and a few other lower body obstacles require a lot of explosive power. To this end, sprints, box jumps, and stair climbing exercises can be of immeasurable help. More powerful legs can come in handy with jumping and running obstacles, as well as overall speed.

Another set of lower body muscles that you don’t want to neglect are all the tiny stabilizer muscles within your ankle. Most athletes tend to ignore these because there aren’t many sports where you train or compete on uneven and moving surfaces. But if you want to know how to be a ninja, you can’t underestimate balance obstacles. I’ve seen a great deal of ninjas take balance for granted only to fall victim. The best way to train these is to simply practice balance. If you do weight train ( and are confident in your technique) try some of your lifts while standing on one foot, or even a Bosu Ball.

How to be a Ninja – Learning to Control your Body

Learning to control your body takes time. It is however, completely necessary if you want to learn how to be a ninja.

What it really breaks down to is simple physics. For example, if you’re spinning out of control, open your legs to slow down. If you want to build a swing, condense your body weight into a ball as you travel away from the ground, and extend your body as gravity pulls you back toward the ground. If you want to turn that swing into a lache, you need to know when to release and how to throw.

The truth is we learn basic body control at a very young age. Figuring out how to be a ninja is just an advanced extension of that. As such, the best way to learn is to do. Having a coach will speed up the process and hopefully prevent any bad habits from forming. But the best way to learn is to practice.

How to be a Ninja – Have Fun!

I’m a huge believer that you should always enjoy any challenges you willingly take on. Competitive spirit is an important motivator, but don’t let it take over. The reason ninja has been growing so overwhelmingly fast, is because it’s so much fun. We ninjas love flying through the air, swinging on ropes, and running up walls. Never forget that the first reason you play a sport is to have fun.

      Lol no shuriken here. You’re right though, ninja is a sport that puts a huge emphasis on overall fitness. I assume you’re talking about American Ninja Warrior? Ninja did get it’s start from ANW (or more acurately Sasuke, Japanese Ninja Warrior). But it has since grown into its own unique sport with many other competitions and leagues.

    • Reply

      Ninja mostly just uses your body weight, so it’s definitely a great workout for anybody worried about the aesthetics of getting too bulky. In fact, having a really thick muscular body usually makes it harder for a ninja to hang for long periods of time (muscle weighs more than fat). Generally speaking, if you’re looking to burn fat and build more lean, dense muscle that won’t make you look super bulky, then you want to do slow, high rep workouts with low weight. A calisthenic based exercise like ninja sounds like it’s perfect for you!

      The crazy thing about ninja is that each obstacle uses different muscles. So until the day of competition, you never know which body parts you’ll be taxing the most. As a result, you’ll really need to train all muscles.

    There are constantly new obstacles being created, and obstacles themselves aren’t really standardized, so the only way to get good at them is practice. With this, you have to keep yourself in frequency to train about all the available obstacle paths. What do you think, Bobby?

      Absolutely, but remember, even if you constantly train new obstacles as they are designed, you could see a brand new obstacle make its debut on the day of competition. So the goal of training is to master body control, not specific obstacles.

      I do have a youtube channel, you can get there by clicking on the youtube icone on the top right of the page! Unfortunately right now it’s mostly just ninja gym reviews, but I do hope to add some instructional videos soon. Check back often!

    Thank you for addressing an excellent point. A video or YT channel can be very beneficial as reading it and watching can be vastly different. Anyway I hope to see your channel soon and see this in action.

    My bro use to hit the gym for muscle building. Looking back it is easy to see that this type of routine can give you that and more. However I think rest is just as important. Well depending on the goal per say. If it is just for a burn then you can take it easy. Competitions however are a different ball game.

      Ninja training uses body weight almost exclusively, so it’s not the most efficient way to get huge muscles. However in terms of funcional strength, ninja training can’t be beat! And of course as with all types of training, rest is allways important!
