In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we bring back our talk with the vegan, two-time natural bodybuilding champion and plant-based advocate, Robert Cheeke.
We wanted to bring up an oldie and a goody. Why are we doing that? Well, in the summers we need a little downtime, for those of you who have only joined us in the last few years, you may not have gotten to these yet and for those of you who have, we know you will walk away with added knowledge and inspiration you may have missed the last time. So enjoy, and we will be back very soon with fresh new content. In the meantime, be active and stay safe and come join the conversation @plantrainers on Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and Twitter.
Robert Cheeke is the founder and president of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness. Robert is the best-selling author of the book, Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness as well as his latest book, Shred It! Your Step-by-Step Guide to Burning Fat and Building Muscle on a Whole-Foods, Plant-Based Diet. He is also a motivational speaker and has had his picture and writing featured on and in countless magazines. Robert was also on the promotional team of Forks Over Knives and toured with Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn.
