Becoming a Vegan Gladiator & MASSIVE Vegan Proteins/Health & Fitness/Bodybuilding Giveaway!

Here's a quick journey in pictures (and some words) of my vegan bodybuilding & fitness journey over the past two months.  At the end, you get the chance to win part of a $300+ multi-prize package in the coolest giveaway KMIV has done.  Get started & finish strong.  Have fun & good luck!

This is what I was planning on running (and eventually ran):
This is what used for training:
Insanity: The 60-Day Total Body Condition Program.  Six days a week for nine weeks, working out from the comfort of my own home. Thirty to sixty minutes of pure sweat, extreme core & endurance workouts.  Interested in trying it out? Connect with Team Beachbody Coach Jessica Pease Jessup - she'll get you going.

This is what I used for my Vegan Power:



Vega Performance Protein (Chocolate's my favorite!), Pre-Workout Energizer, Recovery Accelerator, Protein Bars (Oh, how my taste buds crave Chocolate Saviseed), VegaOne Bars (Chocolate Almond? Chocolate Cherry? Can I have two faves?), VegaOne Nutritional Shakes, WarriorFood (Vanilla was quite tasty.)


This is what I wore:
                               


After two months of training with Insanity (with a lapse for vacation), the gym, and finally my own-invented RUNSANITY (contact me if you wanna hear more about it), I got into the shape I wanted to be in for the run (picture timeline from left to right to bottom), for me to prove mySelf as a... Vegan Gladiator.

 


And so I ran. Here are some highlights:

 
 

There was rope climbing, burpees with cinderblocks, laps with 40 lb. bags of rice, an ice-cold pool (which I had to submerge myself in), 8 ft. walls & dumpsters to scale, wooden pegs and log bridges to traverse, and, oh yeah, lots and lots of mud. Mud to crawl through, mud to walk through, mud walls to get over.  I'll be posting a video compilation sometime - here's my facebook page if you want to follow along.

I'm so hyped about this give-away! I'm a 19 year old guy who seems to be so unfortunate as to be struggling with quite a few things, ranging from being too thin, suffering of IBS and living on a less-than optimal vegan diet, because of me and my parents' economy. I've been looking to buy Plant Fusions' Phood product, and certainly will do in a month or two, but right now my funds are just insufficient.

For the last month now (yay), I'm been training more or less every day, with a friend of mine. I'm psyched about proving to my fellow friends and people from around, that building muscle and lots of it, on a vegan diet is possible. The challanges that my body has put before me though, seems to make it an unfair challange though, and there'll be day where I'll be doubting my body and all of it, because it just seems that there's something not right about it.

But then I tell myself, that it's the difficult that makes the challange. And if I can overcome that, I can do anything. That is also why I'm so hyped about adding something like Phood to my diet. It has so many benefitial things to it!

As for my training routine, I'm currently doing a 3-day split, training biceps/back one day, triceps/chest, legs, abdominal and shoulder, then a rest day and then through it all again.

As for the blog post, it sure is nice that you ran the race! Here in Denmark where I'm from, we're actually having something inspired by it, in two days, called the Warrior Dash. Can't participate though /:

Lots of vegan love, Toby!

Brian said…
A mix of spinning + community boot camp (all body weight exercises) + occasional running + sprinting through Runyon Canyon. Gotta keep your body guessing: what are you gonna put me through today??
Naseem Murakami said…
Body weight training, pilates and yoga!
Sandra said…
My favorite physical activities, in particular order because I love them all: Dance, Yoga, Muay Thai, Boxing!

Training involves all around wellness in my world: strength training, meditation, taking classes in the activities I just mentioned; as well as healthy eating, lots of water, limit coffee.

I show off my inner gladiator by being a member of the US Navy AND signing up for adventures! For example, I'm participating in a 5k tonight!
