Nick Jonas: I don’t like exercising

Nick Jonas claims his gruelling regular diet and workout routine is worth it because of the many health benefits.

The 22-year-old Jealous singer has washboard abs and biceps that would put many men to shame.

But Nick is not a fan of hitting the gym and he needs encouragement from others to get through a fitness session.

“I genuinely don’t like working out, but I’ve got a great trainer. And I like how I feel afterward,” he told Us Weekly magazine.

Nick also ensures his physique remains strong by infusing his day-to-day meals with nutritious food.

He eats things packed with nutrients that help him build brawn.

“I put on 15lbs of muscle and then got leaner,” the svelte star explained. “I really committed to a low-carb, high-protein diet, plus two-a-days in the gym and fight training on top of that.”

Nick has watched what he’s eaten closely for quite a long time.

But he previously confessed sometimes it’s hard to live within dietary restrictions due to the appeal of some of his favourite vices, like drinking alcohol.

"I don't have the luxury of eating whatever I want whenever I want anyway, because of my type 1 diabetes, so I have been conscientious about food for a long time,” he told Details magazine in the past. “I do have guilty pleasures, though. I wasn't drinking at all while I was training for the show [Kingdom], but now that we're done, I keep it classy with Coors Light.”

Nick is currently preparing to perform a series of shows as part of his Nick Jonas: Live in Concert Tour.

And the singer feels fortunate for his team of fitness professionals, as through them he learned a few great travel exercises.

“I worked with a trainer who showed me some things that I can take with me on the road,” he told Men’s Fitness magazine. “Basically, it’s circuit training, so about six exercises, all targeting different parts of the body and then following it up with a two-minute cardio burnout. It's been a really effective workout routine for me, and it keeps it interesting.”
