CELEBRITY WORKOUT ROUTINE: JYOTI KARKI
JYOTI KARKI has recently come onto the spotlight for his role in Zhingrana, and he has a number of other projects that will be rolling out onto screens very soon. But what really caught our eye was the fact that this guy is ripped. He has one of the best physiques we’ve had the fortune of being jealous of.
Jyoti is a graduate from Oscar International College, Nepal and he is a passionate actor making his way into the industry. His heart has always been on performing, and his dream was to become an actor. A lean lanky fellow when he completed his SLC, Jyoti thought it better to utilize the money his father gave him on a gym membership rather than its intended purpose of computer class tuitions. While his family thought he was in class, Jyoti was lifting weights religiously at his local gym. We can imagine the surprise his parents must have felt when they began to see their son turn into a marvelous physical specimen by joining computer classes.
Nevertheless, we’re sure a computer nerd wouldn’t be as impressive as this beast.
1) WHAT SORT OF DIET AND NUTRITION PLAN DO YOU FOLLOW?
I make sure I consume at least 2100 calories which includes at least 150g of protein. In theory, you’re supposed to consume 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight. I make sure to get in 4 to 5 meals a day and drink plenty of water. No junk food.
2) WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE BODY PART TO WORK OUT?
I love working out my deltoids. The pump I get when I’m working them out is just amazingly exhilarating.
3) WHO ARE YOUR INSPIRATIONS?
The legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kai Greene.
4) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE?
When I’m not hitting the weights, I like doing pull-ups and dips. And I love doing everything with weights.
5) DO YOU TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?
I am more into gaining muscle so I take Mass Gainers, Creatine, Amino Acid, Fish oil
and Pre workouts. Supplements are important but you really have to put in your effort at the gym.
6) WHAT COMMON MISTAKES DO YOU THINK MAKE MEN WHEN IT COMES TO WORKING OUT?
People start off and aim to become big and ripped within a few months and then give it a few months afterwards. Then they make the mistake of lifting too heavy too soon. And people also tend to skip on the stretches and warm ups, this can lead to injuries.
7)ANY ADVICE FOR BEGINNERS AT THE GYM?
It’s important to stay motivated, so find something to keep you motivated. It’s never too late to start and you should never give up.
