Hey guys, I haven't posted in a while as work has been busy, but I've had two photo shoots in the past 3 months and I'm pretty excited on the improvements I've made, so I wanted to share the pics. I worked especially hard on my legs and I made some good gains there.

Dude, you look like a CGI. Glad you are still setting and reaching higher goals.

Thanks! Now I am working hard to gain an extra 8lbs and finally break 190, so I'll be posting again if/when that happens :)

Snap son! How long have you been vegan? What's your diet/training like?

Dude, not only is your figure herculean, but that improvement in your legs (in 3 MONTHS??) qualifies as epic. You could literally trace the borders of the 3 vasti in your quads with a magic marker, they're so clearly defined.

EDIT: Thanks to vegimator for pointing out the diet/training blog in his signature!

Thank you all for the compliments. To answer in order:

I've been vegan a bit over 3 years. I've been strength training for 10 years and made much faster improvements as a vegan :)

Yeah check out my blog to see everything that I do. I'm a personal trainer so I try to keep it up to date for all my clients.

Thank you for the compliment on my legs. That crazy improvement is a combination of recovery (sort of) from a bad knee injury, and lots and lots of 400lb squats

I am 5'11" or so last I checked.

Yes, everyone feel free to check out our blog for recipes, workouts, and our interactive meal plan spreadsheet. We will be making our first website soon that will probably be called veganmuscleandfitness.com so I'll post whenever that happens too

Thank you all for your compliments, I'm glad I inspire :). Seeing surprise on people's faces in the gym when they find out I'm vegan is great motivation! Doesn't that make you guys work extra hard?

Nice work! I knew you had to have some nice wheels to go along with those numbers in our strength chart.

I don't know what to write because every word would just be an understatement. I seriously thought I clicked the wrong link and opened the "Ideal physique"-thread.
