Must you know Kumail Nanjiani from the Silicone Valley?

Is not it so?

Yes, the famous Pakistani-American stand-up comedian who is known for his amazing writing for a romantic comedy.

But recent physique transform has made everyone bowled over.

I mean from Silicone Valley nerd to fully developed jacked Marvel superhero.

I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free. I can almost touch my toes now. (And thank you for forcing me to do cheat meals David.) Matthews Street Catering for their delicious and healthy meals. And finally, the biggest thanks goes to @emilyvgordon for putting up with me complaining and talking about only working out and dieting for the last year. I promise I’ll be interesting again some day. #thirstyshirtless (Photo by @markupson.) (edit: I left off one very important person: @lancecallahan who trained me for 6 years and helped me build the foundation I could use to do this. Thank you!)

He could think that Kumail will go that far to reach his destination. Nowadays, he shares the best secrets to his workout that got him that jacked.

But those who know Kumail from the last couple of years must be amazed to see how amazing he has transformed himself just to play the part of a superhero.

Maybe he could be the hero’s nerdy sidekick because Kumail didn’t seem to that hero charm and qualities.

Then everything got changed when he decided to share his shirtless photos online, where he is looking ultra-jacked.

From then on, everything has got changed for him.

He spent the better part of his intense training in secret, just to build his giant physique.

And the reason is he got a role in the coveted Marvel Universe, where he is playing the part of Kingo in the latest file the Eternals.

He explained to Men’s Health that all these efforts are for the character’s secret identity, which forced him to take the gym seriously.

So this is all that he did, and that’s for a reason.

But the actual question is how he did go from a nerd to an amazing hero?

Of course, with his amazing diet plan and exercise, which led him to that strong physique.

In general, he found some top-class and result generated exercises that work for Kumail, in terms of superb results he wants.

However, working alongside his trainer— Grant Roberts, here is the workout plan he followed:


Power Plate Activation – 30 seconds


Zercher Squats – 3 sets/15 reps


Low Cable Scoops – 3 sets/10 reps

Shoulders (Delt Giant Set Circuit)

Dumbbell Front Raise – 3 sets/8 reps

  • Standing Lateral Raise – 3 sets/8 reps
  • Bent-Over Lateral Raise – 3 sets/8 reps
  • Biceps (Electrical Stimulation Circuit)
  • Cross-Body Dumbbell Curls – 3 sets/7 reps
  • Dumbbell Hammer Curls – 3 sets/7 reps
  • Standard Dumbbell Curls – 3 sets/7 reps

Like we can see, this workout routine has to be adjusted for one’s own personal requirements and needs.

So, of course, it has to be coupled with an effective diet plan that could help in getting the desired results for his physique.

But one thing is for sure, and that’s Kumail has really worked hard, and it can easily be seen. It was his passion, workout, and diet plan, which led to amazing results.

We hope this article will help you understand the reason behind Kumail’s workout and the big physique. He has surely worked hard for this, and the results you can see.
