Shugyo, as defined in Living the Martal Way (an excellent book, in my opinion) describes it as some sort of training to push beyond your limits, to see how far you could go. From this author's definition, it sounded more like a physical misogi, but I don't have the book handy, and it's hard to explain without quoting from it...
