Nick Jonas is showing off his “guns” in a new interview for Men’s Fitness.
In the interview, which was conducted before the band’s separation was announced, Nick talks about turning 21, staying healthy and playing in a band with his brothers.
What’s it like being in a band with your brothers? Be honest! The pro is that you have a really good support system. The con is that you’re with the same people every day for a long time, which, if you’re family or not, can be a lot at times. But we all have a good relationship and actually really enjoy our time together.
You guys spend a lot of time together. Do things ever break down after a while? My brother Joe forgets lyrics a little bit. [Laughs] There have been a lot of times when I’ve had to help him out onstage. The fans know the words to every song, so they can kind of help as well.
You’re 21 now—do you feel like it’s time to target an older crowd? It definitely comes with challenges. There are a lot of different ways you can approach coming to maturity, but the one we took is to continue to grow with the fans and take our time with it because it’ll last longer.
Speaking of growing, you’ve packed on some serious muscle. What’s your workout like? I worked with a trainer who showed me some things that I can take with me on the road. 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.
What do you eat to stay in shape? A lot of lean protein, and I’ve cut out most carbs.
