Olympic Snatch PR 200lbs.

Guys, that is 3 Personal Records on this Whole Food Challenge. I enjoy tofu, tempeh, and seitan as much as the next vegan out there, but it is kind of looking unnecessary. I’ll keep you posted but as of now, I’m feeling pretty awesome! This was from yesterday, Saturday, August 17th, Day 13 of the PBWF Challenge. My Snatch 1 Rep Max at the beginning of this was 175, so it is up 25lbs since starting (5lbs more than highest ever, got 195 over a year ago). Thanks for following. Eat Plants Get Fit!

Deadlift PR 420lbs.

Day 7 of the (always Plant-Based) Whole Foods Challenge. That means no tofu, tempeh, seitan, Gardein, Tofurky, Upton’s, or Field Roast. I’m getting protein from beans, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, and some grains. Gluten Free. Soy Free. Excuse Free. 10+ Personal Record.
