Think Vegans Are Wimpy? Watch This Stunning Superhuman Athlete

Frank Medrano’s video, Superhuman Bodyweight Workout Domination, received 3.5 million views in a single month. Featured on MTV, ESPN, ABC and countless other websites and shows, this little clip is taking the world by storm as it demonstrates just how powerful plant nutrition can be.

Joining the ranks of a multitude of other plant-strong athletes, Frank Medrano adopted a plant-based diet not for animal-rights reasons initially, but rather because he became aware that animal products were actuallyhurting his workout.

“I’ve had a passion for fitness for quite some time, but never in a million years did I ever imagine my physical abilities and conditioning could take me to unprecedented levels on a Vegan plant based diet… What intrigued me the most about being vegan was that I felt I needed to take my health and wellness to a whole new level… As the weeks went by my energy rapidly increased, my muscle endurance and recovery increased to miraculous levels. I became stronger, faster and stopped feeling fatigued or bloated from eating dairy and meat products.”

Yes, despite the misconception many athletes still have that animal products are essential to building body mass, Frank Medrano and many others are showing us all that plant-powered workouts are the way of the future!

Your body needs are different than the persons next to you, even if it is just What you can have and what they can't have. There are omnivores that have gotten It right as well, such as my father who, while never will be a "superathelet", can work hard labor from sunup to sundown with only a break to pick up supplies or for lunch. While vegan aren't weak, omnivores aren't unhealthy. Listen to your body when you eat and after you eat. It will know what it needs better than someone who doesn't even know you. Make you get get the right amount of calories for the work out you do. And make sure to get your blood check for vitamin and mineral levels to make sure you are getting everything you need, as well as talk with a nutritist on best how to approach a new diet.

I will never be mistaken for a super athlete, but I try to do strength training, so I won't be a poor example of a vegetarian!

I can point to several meat eaters that seem to have gotten in right also, so maybe you'll need to do better than 1.
