Vegan trainer

#1 Postby trainer_j0hn » Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:23 pm

I'm a trainer, athlete, and nutritional consultant in South Carolina.

I have been vegetarian for the last 7 years and vegan for a good bit of that time.

I recently suffered a serious injury to the infraspinatus in my right arm and can barely move the arm. Instead of letting myself fall into typical post-injury depression and inactivity, I have decided to concentrate on working my legs, my core, and the left side of my upper body.

I think that posting here might help keep me motivated, on track, and somewhat accountable, and I think I will learn a lot!

Before I hurt my shoulder, I was doing mostly weighted chin-ups, weighted dips, incline bench press, lunges, and planks.

Welcome to the team!

Great to have you. Sorry to hear about your injury. I have had many throughout my bodybuilding career too.

Hope you're recovering well and still able to focus on certain types of training like you outlined.

All the best and welcome aboard!

Hey John, happy late welcome. Tons of people are looking for vegan trainers, maybe use the keyword search on this forum. Keywords trainer and/or south carolina. How is business going for you?
