THE FITTEST GUY IN TOWN: JYOTI KARKI AND HIS ABS OF STEEL

14

Jyoti Karki has one of the best bodies in the movie business and he works hard for it. This guy is positively ripped. He came into limelight with his role in Zhingrana and is currently working on a few projects and teaching a few acting classes as well.

Jyoti is a graduate from Oscar International College, Nepal and he is a passionate actor making his way into the industry. A lean lanky fellow when he completed his SLC, Jyoti thought its 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. It’s safe to say,

Microsoft Word didn’t have jack to do with his ripped body. Achieving 6 pack abs is the epitome of fitness. Not only does it represent a certain level of effort in the gym, but it also boasts of a relatively low body fat percentage. For this, both diet and exercise play important roles. Jyoti Karki has this down to a tee, and those abs speak for themselves. These are Jyoti’s favorite workouts that hit the abdominal muscles. After looking at his body, we won’t be arguing about their effectiveness. Here’s how to get the abs that are the envy of everyone you know.

6 TIPS FOR A 6 PACK

  • TRAIN ABS HEAVY

Build some size on the abdominals so that they will press up against the skin, which will help out tremendously in achieving ripped abs. Doing hundreds of crunches a day will not help, intense heavy weight training will. A good rep range to work within is the 8-12 repetition range. Do one or two different abdominal exercises with a total of around 5-6 sets.

2) SMART CARDIO

Instead of hours on the treadmill, perform interval workouts where you max out for 30 seconds and then hop off and do 20 reps of exercise ball crunches (or other abdominal workouts). Repeat 5-8 times.

3) DRINK LOTS OF WATER

If you are properly hydrated, your fat burning rate remains optimum. Drinking more water increases your metabolism as well.

4) DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST

A healthy breakfast is the most important meal for a reason – it jumpstarts your metabolism for the entire day. Opt for protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates.

5) WATCH WHAT YOU EAT

Stick to a proper diet that is high on protein and low on carbs.

6) BUILD MORE MUSCLE

It is important to try to build up muscle mass on the rest of your body. More muscle mass will result in a higher BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and thus, more calories burned.
