The Secret Is Out.
He shook his head and said “You’ll never gain muscle on a vegan diet”.
“I said watch me”.
I wanted to prove that you could be muscular and increase performance as a vegan bodybuilder.
To do it without harming animals was important..
Ever since I watched a documentary called Dominon It changed my outlook forever.
The way animals were treated was unbelievable and shocked me deep to my core.
When I found out the strongest animals in the world are gorillas, I knew there had to be some truth about plant-based proteins.
Needless to say, there were a bunch of questions in my mind:
- How could I realistically replicate an animal based approach with a whole foods plant based diet?
- Was it possible to get enough protein to get 1.6g per kg of body weight without eating loads of tofu and drinking lots of protein?
- What’re the best macros for fat loss while building muscle?
- Would I lose muscle on a plant-based diet plan?
- What vegan foods taste nice and don’t cost a fortune?
After some deep research I discovered if you want to become a vegan bodybuilding beast you must know this:
The 4 Best Kept Secrets Every Vegan Bodybuilder Must Know For Muscle Gain.
If you’re not in a calorie surplus you’re unlikely to build quality muscle. Forget the bro dirty bulk. To build lean hard muscle you only need to be 2-300 calories above maintenance. Anything more and you’ll add fat.
Nutrition Is Key
Nutrients make a colossal difference to energy levels, gym performance, general well being and the ability to add muscle. The average gym bro doesn’t care about health and chugs down saturated fats risking narrowing of arteries.
It doesn’t matter what or when you do it. If you can’t stick to it, you’ll never see the results. Set a goal and timeframe then smash it out the park.
You have to gradually increase the training stimulus to be a vegan bodybuilding beast. More sets, more reps or more weight is the key driver for the mass. Don’t mess on with cables, focus on heavy compound lifts.
The Plant Based Performance Advantage
Fast acting performance
The king of fuel for a vegan bodybuilder is carbohydrates. Carbs are stored in the muscles as glycogen so when you need a burst of explosive energy, they can be called upon, fast. You’ll be able to train harder, for longer.
Boosts “NO’ production
Plant based diet foods will open your blood vessels let nutrients surge through to your hard working muscles. Animal foods can block off this process. As an added bonus you ‘ll experience insane sleeve bursting pumps during workouts.
Recover faster and be back in the gym sooner than ever. Plants are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds which help reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). It’s no surprise that Vegan athletes are kicking ass in the gym.
The rise of the vegan beast
It’s time to Rise & Conquer the norm. Gain an unfair advantage and Unleash the power of the plant based athlete.
Amp up athletic performance and destroy the myth that vegans are weak.
