Syracuse Hardcore Legends Workout Out In Santa Cruz

XBilly PruzX and Adam Barton
Not that I was anyone special in the Syracuse Hardcore Scene (group of kids that went to punk and hardcore band concerts throughout the 90's and 2000's), but I put my fair share into going to shows and supporting bands and doing animal rights outreach at a variety of events from 2000 to 2009. Adam Barton, on the other hand, has a legacy of tattooing-greatness that has spread across the continental U.S. and on into other tattoo cultures overseas. I know dozens of people that have had Barton-inspired tattoos inked on them along with people who wish to one day have the same permanently placed on their bodies. I, for one, do not have any tattoos, but have utmost respect for those who chose to display beautiful art on their bodies in a mindful way. Lots of tattoos suck! But I think these here are pretty great.

Skulls are everywhere....AWESOME SKULLS are few and far between
That's all for today. I just wanted to share with you all the excitement that I feel when I meet somebody fascinating (and famous, in my OPP) while working out. Check out more of Adam's work at Adam Barton Tattoo or visit him at O'Reillys Tattoo in Santa Cruz!

HOW TO: SHOP and COOK VEGAN for MUSCLE-BUILDING


I have created my entire fitness business website, Herbivore Athletics, and found that despite the wealth of information I have about working out and lifting weights, the whole vegan thing is what fans are most interested in. A big part of my fitness is what I do in the gym! See above! Hard workouts 6 to 7 days a week are what I am most faithful to! The diet part- it's just life. 

Though, I would like to help people understand a little more about vegan muscle and vegan nutrition for muscle-building or mass-gaining. It's possible! If you haven't done any kind of research, check out Vegan Bodybuilding  for an online resource that a friend, Robert Cheeke, developed several years ago. Vegans have also recently taken the spotlight in CrossFit communities worldwide and have a motivational support group on Facebook called CrossFit Vegans and Vegetarians. I participate regularly in discussions on both of those sites, so feel free to say hello there and enjoy what all of us crazy vegans have to say about our health and fitness!

Here is the video that I created while doing some of my Herbivore Athletics nutritional coaching for a client earlier this summer. This video is Part I of II. 

Now go out and buy your: Kale, Seitan, Tofurky Italian Sausage, Trader Joe's Chicken-Less Strips and Trader Joe's Beef-Less Strips to cook up for this week's meals! You can do it too!

 Before you go, you can watch a video of more amazing things touching my tongue in this HOW TO EAT A FIG video!
