Ep 287 - Hall Of Fame | Nikul Shah: Gaining 10kg+ LEGIT Muscle AND Getting Shredded

On the RNT Transformation Journey, when you hit your first checkpoint and you’re in the best shape of your life, you have two choices. To either learn how to stay where you are effortlessly, or to seriously build muscle and upgrade your physique. For most, the former is the preferred route. But if you’re one of the few with real ambitions to transform your body, get as strong as possible, and build a lot of muscle, the path is very different. It’s one where you embrace the fluff, invest heavily for a few years, and know that on the other side, you can cash out with serious rewards. This is exactly what Nikul has done since starting with us back in 2019. After getting into shape, he’s since built around 7-10kg of legit muscle mass and after spending years investing heavily, has totally transformed his body, his career, his relationships and his overall life. Check out his case study in the show notes to see more pictures, stats and his story.
