Ep.3 – The Aethix Approach – Ep 3 – Interview with Cade from PlantBasedPumps about Training Programming and Optimal Nutrition for Building Muscle and Strength as a Vegan

TAA Episode 3

Cade Jones (PlantBasedPumps on Instagram) is a Rhode Island based vegan lifter who focuses on more of a Power-building style training system while juggling training with working 65-70 hour weeks!

Cade noticed a much greater gain in strength and muscle from becoming more knowledgeable about constructing his training programs and focusing more on strength. He also got much stronger and bigger after going plant based and is very knowledgeable when it comes to proper nutrition to build muscle as well as effective programming for strength/muscle gains.

Cade and I discuss the most effective programming methods for size and strength, plant based nutrition and bulking on a plant based diet, how we respond to others who aren’t vegan, the best training and nutrition practices for beginner lifters, and much more! It was a pleasure chatting with Cade and I hope you enjoy and learn something new here! 🙂
