Nikki Blackketter in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Japan Update

“This is by no means everything I brought back from Japan lol..."

Nikki Blackketter is sharing all the goodies she bought in Japan in her workout clothes. In a new social media post the YouTuber shows off her incredible figure in exercise clothes after returning from a trip. "This is by no means everything I brought back from Japan lol, but it's definitely stuff that I would put in the ✨unnecessary✨ ((but FUN)) category 🧚🏼‍♀️," she captioned the Instagram video. How does she approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Weight Lifting

Nikki explained to Simply Shredded how she discovered weight lifting and bodybuilding. "When I was 18 I was a real 'party girl.' I was pretty much lost and had no direction in life and didn't have any good role models to look up to. I finally decided that I was tired of going to school every day with a hangover. I hated the way my body looked and felt. I always thought that lifting weights would make me look 'bulky.' Once I found Jamie Eason and some other great fitness models, I decided to try it out; it was fun and I started to see results pretty quickly," she said. 


Five Day Split

Nikki does splits. "I have pretty much always done a five day split with three leg days and two upper body days. The first few years, I focused on building a solid foundation. Now I do a lot of isolation for my legs and glutes. I add in cardio here and there when I feel I need it, but I love tossing in plyos to keep my heart rate up," she said. 


Her Favorite Exercises

If Nikki had to pick only 3 exercises she revealed to Simply Shredded what they would be:

  1. Step Ups: They are great because they hit my glutes and quads nicely and keep my heart rate up.
  2. Squats: This is an excellent full body compound movement and I have fun hitting new PR's.
  3. Lunges: Never seem to get easy, but are great for my quads and glutes. I also love the variations you can do with these.


Flexible Dieting

Nikki tries not to be too restrictive with her diet. "I follow an 'IIFYM,' or 'flexible dieting,' diet. I love the balance it creates, and I never feel super restricted! Since I have switched to this type of diet, I have a very healthy relationship with food," she told them. 


Five Meals a Day


Nikki detailed her daily diet to Simply Shredded. 

  • Meal 1: 2 Whole Eggs, 2 Egg Whites and 2 packets Sugar Free Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal
  • Meal 2: 4 ounces Chicken, 1 slice Turkey Bacon, 2-3 cups Spinach, ½ cup Strawberries, ¼ cup Reduced Fat Feta Cheese, handful chopped Tomatoes, handful shredded Carrots, 1 tablespoon Olive Oil and 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing
  • Meal 3: 4-6 ounces Chicken, 1 cup chopped White Potatoes, 3 ½ ounces Asparagus, and 1 tablespoon Reduced Sugar Ketchup
  • Meal 4: 80 calorie Light and Fit Greek Yogurt, 5 ounces Bell Peppers and ½ cup Strawberries
  • Meal 5: 1 serving Kodiak Power Cakes, 1 Whole Egg, 3 tablespoons Peanut Butter and ¼ cup Syrup


Cardio and HIIT Workouts

When she wants to lose weight, Nikki does more intense workouts. "I usually prefer normal cardio, but when I am really pushing for results, I'll do HIIT. HIIT provides me with results more quickly. When I keep my calories low, I prefer using the Stairmaster," she said.
