NBSV 151: Coach K’s birthday, goal-setting, and veganism + strength training fundamentals

In this episode I share with you a few thoughts on my birthday, and a presentation I gave recently at a health expo, about veganism and strength training. This is a great place to start if you’re new to either veganism or strength training (or both). And if you’re not new to these worlds, it’ll be a good refresher to make sure you’ve nailed the fundamentals.

Learn why I no longer set annual goals on my birthday (and which two books had the biggest impact on me in this area), and how I celebrated this year. Also get the basics on the 6 fundamental strength training movement patterns you need to include in your workouts each week, a few nutrients to which active vegans need to pay extra attention, muscle gain and/or fat loss on a plant-based diet, and everyone’s favourite vegan topic: protein.
