Patrik Baboumian performing a 1214lb yoke carry!
Vegan strongman (YES you read that correctly) Patrik Baboumian set a world record in a feat of strength on Sunday, 9/8/13, by lifting-and carrying-a strongman yoke loaded with 550kg of weight (about 1214 lbs) a distance of 10 meters!

This feat was performed in front of a crowd of several hundred spectators at the Vegetarian Food Festival in Toronto.

Patrik is an animal lover who became vegetarian in 2006 and vegan in 2011, shortly after being named Germany's Strongest Man.

In a quote from thestar.com, Patrik states, "One day, I just thought, if you see a bird with a broken leg, you really have the urge to do something about it and help the bird, then at the same time you go to a restaurant and eat a chicken or something. It doesn't make any sense."

Picture
I wonder how man times Patrik gets this question?!?!
According to Patrik's website at www.patrikbaboumian.de, Patrik explains his reason for switching to a plant-based lifestyle, "When I started the vegetarian diet 2005 I knew little about the effect it would have on my performance and strength. The reasons for my decision where mainly based on my empathy for all kinds of non human animals and the mental conflict I felt, when consuming meat, which would mean that an animal would have to lose its live for my appetite. Expecting at least a slight inverse effect on my training performance I was amazed by the great gains in lean body-mass and strength I got with the meat-free diet."

And to answer the above question-his main protein sources are: soy milk, soy protein powder, tofu, nuts, and beans. In addition he eats a lot of carbohydrates to fuel his training (rice, potatoes, oats), and he eats a lot of fruit, greens, and vegetables, relying heavily on shakes and smoothies to make it easier to consume the necessary calories he needs for his level of size and strength.
Thanks for helping to destroy the stereotype that vegans are skinny, frail and weak-Patrik, Plant-Based Performance salutes you!

-Scott

Great write up Scott! I love hearing about people who become vegans for ethical reasons and are willing to accept a loss in performance for their standards - of course they're happily surprised to fine otherwise!

It's no secret that many things within the infrastructure of the United States are antiquated and worn out. We've seen bridges collapse, levees fail, and our public education system deteriorate almost to the point of no return, and the funding to refurbish and rebuild just isn't there. Another resource that is being severely taxed is our municipal water.
