Hi guys

I am very new to body building but I am mega inspired by meeting some of you vegan super heroes that are out there. I love the idea of the image of vegans being strong, powerful looking people and others following on that basis. Its a new way to animal liberation.

If anybody wants tips on flexibility, please drop me a line.

You can see a show I did in Korea recently here

Wow, Rubber is right, you must have some serious strength and flexibility to do that sort of thing...

Welcome :) . I loved the video, even though I couldn't hear it :( . Looks like you had a great time there (and do you really brush your teeth with one foot behind your head ;) ?). My favorite part was the old man trying to put his foot behind his head . . . actually, he did better than I did just now :oops: .

You look super strong, too :shock: . The push-ups you do look tough!

Hi Crystal,

Thanks, yes the old guy copying me was funny. He was drunk. Actually there is a Korean custom where you pour older people a drink and then you let them pour you one. I had to be poured one even though I don't drink. They didn't mind me giving it away. I just had to be served!

Yes, i've got really strong in my upperbody doing really weird push ups daily for 3 years like in the video. Since the last 2 months of lifting weights I can do them more easily. I'm trying to build more strength and muscle. An old guy said to me recently after a show. "You're really strong ...even though you've got no muscle." It's great when people compiment my strength and I always truthfully say "The vegan diet is my secret."

Ay Ritchie. My name's Richard too, that means I kick ass. I'd like to know something about joints. I am pretty flexible (can get my feet behind my head) and do various martial artsy type things, but recently my knees have start to hurt and feel uncomfortable. I am thinking of going to see a specialist, but maybe you'd have some idea of what I could do? My dad (who is a doctor) said he thinks it's the tendons / ligaments, rather than a bone/joint problem.

Welcome aboard. That's quite a trick you got there with the flexibility, maybe I could drop you a line about tips for gymnastic related stuff?

You're absolutely right, it is awesome to imagine a vegan as someone big and strong. Most people say they'd never guess I was a vegan when they meet me or see me for the first time, and I'm only about 180 lbs (6 feet tall).

Welcome. I just started to stretch on a regular basis. It makes a big difference.
