Think you need to eat animals to get enough protein? Think again and get inspired by vegan athletes Robert Cheeke and Vanessa Espinoza. They're workout buddies, business partners co-authors of the book "Plant-Based Muscle."
Vanessa is an elite powerlifter, a 3X Colorado Golden Gloves Boxing Champion and an All-American basketball player. At age 35, on May 26, 2018, she competed in the United States Powerlifting Association (USPA) in Arizona and won the “Best Female Lifter” award for the highest overall total, even though she was one of the lightest weight powerlifters in the competition, weighing in at just 132 lbs.
