Kumail Nanjiani is already known for his comedic roles in the “The Big Sick” and “Silicon Valley.” But with his upcoming superhero role in the Marvel film “The Eternals,” he has been training and dieting to get that superhero look just right.

Kumail Nanjiani Workout

Lately, fans have been noticing that Najiani has been bulking up considerably. Fans have commented on his bulging biceps when he posted a shirtless pic on Instagram showing off that all of his hard work finally paid off.

“You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain,” Nanjiani posted on the platform, Insider reported. It was a quote from the film “The Dark Knight.”

The shirtless photo must have motivated countless fans. Here are the steps of the Kumail Nanjiani workout as provided by Men’sHealth. And the best part is, only one will only need a bench and dumb bells.

Front Raise – Start by standing while holding the dumbbells at the side with palms facing inward. Raise the dumbbells until the arms are parallel to the floor then pause shortly. Do this for 5 to 8 reps.

Lateral Raise – Start with the arms holding the dumbbells in front of the thighs. Raise the weights to the sides bending the elbows a little in the process. Pause for a bit then do 5 to 8 reps.

Rear-Delt Raise – Slightly bend your knees and move the torso as if leaning forward while holding the dumbbells. Raise the weights sideways and pause for a bit. Do this for 5 to 8 reps.

Do the three moves, front raise, lateral raise, and rear-delt raise two times more or a total of three sets. After that, one can move to the final step below called W press.

W Press – While sitting on the bench, hold the dumbbells at one’s shoulders. Then lift the upward and outward hence the name of this move because the arms will look like the letter “W.” Pause for a bit then repeat for 12 to 15 reps. Do three sets of this move.

Kumail Nanjiani Diet

Diet is very important for those trying to lose weight or sculpt their bodies. For Najiani, he’ll go on low-carb eating for five straight days (Mondays to Fridays) then binge eat on Saturdays and Sundays as they are his cheat days.

“Basically, it’s five days of low-carb, then over the weekend you eat as much as you want,” the actor said. “But I’m trying to figure out the food thing right now because I wasn’t eating enough. I’m still kind of afraid of gaining the wrong kind of weight, because I’m very vain.”

He admits that Pakistani food is probably not good for those dieting. “Pakistani food is delicious, but it’s a lot of carbs: biryani, naan bread, tons of rice,” he added.

The actor did not specifically say which food he eats and doesn’t eat. However, fans can check online diet and health sites to check which food items are considered low card options.
