18 year old vegan powerlifter/strongman

#1 Postby StrongmanMuzza » Fri Jan 13, 2012 12:28 pm

G'day fellow vegans, my name is StrongmanMuzza and I'm an 18 year old powerlifter/strongman.

I've been strict vegan since I was 13 years old and in September of 2010 I began training for both of my sports and in February of 2011 I did my first strongman competition. At the time I weighed about 85kg (190lb) and had a 100kg squat (220lb), 140kg deadlift (308lb) and 90kg (200lb) bench press. In 16 months I have gained over 25kg (55lb) in body weight and almost doubled most of my lifts.

My current stats are as follows:
Height: 5' 11" (1.8m)
Weight: 110kg (242lb)
Deadlift: 272.5kg (600lb)
Squat: 230kg (505lb)
Bench: 140kg (308lb)

My diet consists of basically as much vegan food as I can fit in my stomach in one day! However, the average day for me looks like:
Bowls and bowls of oats
Bowls and bowls of beans
A few soy protein shakes a day
Lots of fruit

I train with a Westside four day split; Max Effort Lower Body, Max Effort Upper Body, Dynamic Effort Lower Body, Dynamic Effort Upper Body and one strongman training every Saturday.

I don't have any recent physique photos except a shot of my lat spread from a few months ago (about 48" around):

Sorry for the lack of posting guys, I've been pretty busy lately.

Here's a video of the strongman comp I did today (I came second).

Vegan power!
