Rajesh was born on 1st of December, 1985, in Gurgaon, Haryana. Having a sculpted body was something Rajesh strived for ever since his early teens, and after years of hard work and dedication he turned his dream into reality.
It wasn’t until his late teenage years that he decided he would compete in local shows, and by the age of 18, he took home 3rd place at the Junior Mr. Haryana 2003.
The college he was attending, Dronacharya College, was soon neglected because of his passion for bodybuilding. Nevertheless, he graduated from the college, while preparing for shows that were about to come.
First Gold Medal And Other Competitions
Rajesh later went on to win the same show in which he finished 3rd, the Mr. Haryana contest, and he accomplished that just 12 months after the first show.
At only 19 years of age, he already had 2 medals, and he was still far from satisfied. Aspiring Indian continued his series of extraordinary results with several more medals, and in 2016., after 12 years, he won 1st place in MuscleMania India Classic.
The 31-year-old was praised by many during his early competition days in India, especially by one of his coaches, who said that Rajesh “had one of the most aesthetic physiques in the country and was sure to go places in the years that were about to come.“
“No matter how much I am tired but every time when I enter the gym I give my 100% effort to achieve my goals.”
When it comes to training, Rajesh is a fan of progressive overload. His favorite exercises are squats, overhead cable curls, and dumbbell flys on a flat bench.
“I feel egg protein works best for me. It’s easy to make and not expensive. So I advise to those who say that protein diet is too much and can’t afford it – eat more eggs in your diet.”
Rajesh is known for his mastery in dieting, which allows him to keep an immaculate physique all year round.
He also stresses the importance of food, not just supplements. The Indian was amazed by how many people put supplements ahead of food as their first choice. He believes that food, together with good supplementation is the best route one can take.
„I don’t believe in just proteins and amino’s but a wholesome nutritional intake. Multivitamins, fish oils, antioxidants all form a very important part of a nutrition regime. One should make sure to incorporate all of these babies.“
“Don’t quit…Whatever you do, don’t quit.”
