This episode was recorded 10 years later, on the exact same weekend that we met Robert Cheeke. A whole lot has happened over the years and there was much ground to cover.

Why did we start using bodybuilding as a platform to promote veganism? How did we get to where we are today? With the undeniable rise of veganism and the explosive growth in our community over the past 5 years, what do we do now to keep the movement growing?

Well, to answers these questions, we turned to one of our closest friends and colleagues, Robert Cheeke. Affectionately called the vegan godfather, Robert has owned his title and continues to live up to his name.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn all about the history of the vegan bodybuilding community as we know it, as well as to learn about how we have rose to the occasion and jumped onto the mainstream fitness circuit at The Fit Expo events, nationwide.

SHOW NOTES: It’s been almost 10 years since VeganProteins was incepted. Up until last year, we were primarily a supplement store for the community. You could say that understanding what kind of supplementation works for vegan athletes has and continues to be a big passion of ours. Ironically, we have not yet talked about supplementation, even though we’ve been researching it for over a decade. There’s a reason for this. Tune in to today’s episode to find out why.

In this weeks episode we will be discussing what we find is necessary, effective, and ineffective in the world of supplements. There are SO many supplements out there and it can get very pricey to keep up with pre-workout, post-workout and daily supplements both for performance and for overall health.

We’re looking forward to finally opening up this discussion and hearing your thoughts as well.

In this week's episode, we dive into a super sensitive topic about steroids in bodybuilding, and within the vegan bodybuilding community. This is not a how-to guide or even a should-you guide. Admittedly as natural athletes, our knowledge of steroids and PEDs is limited, but it's a discussion that has been a long time coming in this community.

SHOW NOTES:

On a fat loss journey, whether that is to lose a few pounds, or a full competition prep, there almost always will come a point where progress slows to a crawl or even stops. This is super frustrating! In this episode we talk about the many ways that plateaus creep up on us, why this happens, and what you can do about it.

We also review a super delicious new product called Pintful Peanut Butter which is organic, super healthy and even has extra protein! Check out their Kickstarter on April 4th to get your own!

It’s hard to imagine, but picture yourself being whisked away to a vegan city on the sea with over 2,000 like minded individuals with access to over 150 lectures, fitness and yoga classes, cooking and healing workshops, and pretty much all you can eat vegan food!

Not only did we have the ability to absorb all of the latest and greatest talks on a plant-based diet, environmental advocacy, and animal rights, we also got to travel in style. With the ability to visit several islands across the Caribbean and bond with fellow vegan superheroes in an intimate setting, there was not a single moment we won’t treasure for years to come.

As a matter of fact, we have already committed to speaking and teaching classes on the 2019 vegan cruise from March 3rd - 14th. And we’d love to hang with you! Right now, the Holistic Holiday At Sea is offering the lowest rate for this trip that will be offered for those who book before April 27th. You can reserve your spot with a small down payment that is 100% refundable as well. So if this is something you’re considering, now is the time to get in on it.

Mention “VeganProteins” when you book and you’ll also get $50 in onboard credit. We’ll also be tossing in some other special gifts for those who are joining us. So do contact us to let us know you’re coming so we can hook you up.

Hope to see you next year!

SHOW NOTES:

Two episodes ago, we talked about Dani's competition prep. But what about Giacomo? Giacomo stepped off stage 2 1/2 years ago and has yet to begin his next prep. And since then, he’s competed in several powerlifting meets. Has he gone full powerlifter?! What gives?

Taking a powerbuilding approach to training can complement both aesthetic and strength goals quite nicely. That being said when it comes time to be at your competitive best, some specificity will be needed by choosing one over the other..

And what about his bulking season. Lean gains, dirty bulking, reverse dieting, what path does someone take who wants to get stronger but still remain within striking distance to the stage?

With a current injury casting some grey clouds over Giacomo’s short term goals, the current road has been somewhat uncertain. As we’ve mentioned in the past though, getting and overcoming injuries is simply a part of the game when taking things to an advanced level.

Find out all about Giacomo’s current journey and what he has learned along the way in Episode 36 of Muscles By Brussels Radio, Giacomo’s Powerbuilding Journey.

SHOW NOTES:

You’ve gotten your workouts on the regular and are starting to pay closer attention to your nutrition. That’s awesome! It’s at that point where your muscle building efforts have started to pay off. Gains city baby! So now that you’ve officially considered yourself a vegan bodybuilder, what’s the next step?

What are some habits that should be created for beginner and intermediate bodybuilders who are looking to advance themselves? Should the ultimate goal of bodybuilding be to step on stage and compete? Say your not the competitive type, can you look like you just stepped on stage year round without having to compete? What about bulking for the gains and cutting for the conditioning. Just how necessary are these types of dieting phases and when should we even be thinking about them? What about supplements?

These are some of the questions and topics that we tackle and address in episode 35 “Bodybuilding for non competitors” of VeganProteins Muscles By Brussels Radio.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
