Early Life

Jon Call was born in Huntsville, Alabama.

He was involved in Taekwondo at age 13 and by 14, his parents bought him a gym membership where’d he train after school and found a love in lifting weights. He especially fancied the deadlift and squats and not much has changed.

The gym was right across the street from my school, so I lifted weights after school while I waited for them to give me a ride back home. I fell in love with deadlifts and squats and have continued training them.”

At age 15, Jon Call discovered an activity online called “tricking” that involves doing a combination of flips, twists, and kicks.

He’d practice in his backyard until he learned many of the techniques and it turned out to be beneficial for him to add to his Taekwondo repertoire. So he practiced improving his flexibility every night for two hours and in two months was able to achieve his goal of doing full splits.

In 2002, he launched the website that became a big success, and he started combining his tricking abilities with bodybuilding and strength feats.

He used his acrobatic skills to compete in America’s Got Talent competition Season 11.

“I’m the only one who can do it like I do at my size. You won’t find anyone else my size who can do the moves I can do. And you won’t find anyone else who can do the moves I can do who is anywhere near my size. I do them both because I want to!”

Jon gave himself the nickname Jujimufu when he was 14 due to being frustrated while trying to find an AOL username that wasn’t taken of which he yelled out JUJIMUFU! Well, it’s stuck with him ever since!

After graduating college, Call worked as a technical manager for a biotechnology group for seven years.

However, he eventually quit in 2016 because he was making a better living doing fitness.

My advice for earning a living for anyone, is to try to do it by doing something you’d be doing anyway, regardless if you were getting paid. If that’s not possible, then earn your living doing something passable or easy, that doesn’t get in the way of you living your life outside of it. NEVER EVER EVER work a job you hate: quit and get an easy job.”

Jujimufu has competed/competes in powerlifting competitions on occasion and his first full meet took place in early 2020. He turned in a 666 lb/302kg squat, 400lb/181kg bench press, and 666lb deadlift for a 1736.1lbs/787kg total in wraps.

But late last year (2020), he asked fans to vote on whether he should enter a bodybuilding competition of which most said yes.

So he enlisted the help of IFBB legend Kai Greene to help with his posing and even had a date set for his debut that would have been in March 2021 at the Arnold Amateur.

He then teamed up with IFBB pro Antoine Vaillant in prep for competition and decided the iconic Flex Wheeler would be his posing coach.

But, unfortunately for him and all other competitors, the prestigious Arnold Sports Festival that takes place in Ohio every year was postponed indefinitely.

So at the moment, his bodybuilding career is uncertain but it’d be awesome to see him on stage one day in the near future.

Jujimufu – Training Regimen

Jujumufu trains about 5-6 days per week and 1-2 hours per session. Of course, he trains for different things including tricking, Strongman, bodybuilding, and powerlfiting, so there’s a lot of variety in his training.

For skillwork I just work on my favorite moves. For bodybuilding I do the opposite: I put most of my work toward my weaknesses instead of my favorites.”

Jujimufu has acknowledged that he has underwhelming genetics when it comes to certain body parts such as his chest and biceps. So he trains accordingly to ensure he does what he can to maintain balance between muscle groups.

“For example, I have terrible genetics for pectoral and bicep development, so I have to work those groups more. While my back responds to any sort of mindlessness; it adapts quickly to new loads and exercises.”

But he’s made great improvements and is still an incredibly impressive specimen.

Know the difference between not taking something seriously, and being capable of laughing at it because you’ve overcome it. There is nothing on this earth that you cannot work to one day stand above and make a joke about or be silly about. That includes yourself. If life is still too heavy to make fun of for you, then at least begin training yourself to smile. Because you will make more friends when you smile more, and friends can help with some of the heaviest lifting.”

What inspires and motivates Jujimufu? Here are some words from the big man himself.

Ideas motivate me. I’m motivated to act on these ideas because they haunt me until I make a video or write about them to share with others. This is the only thing that has ever motivated me. People encourage me to continue because they sometimes like what I do, and this motivates me to come up with more ideas. Most importantly though, I act on my ideas, because I don’t want someone to do them before me! And so it goes in a circle round and round…
