Book: Thrive Fitness
By Brendan Brazier, a professional Ironman triathlete and creator of Vega, an award-winning whole-food, plant-based, nutritional product line. Brendan is one of the world's foremost authorities on plant-based nutrition for athletes.
On the heals of his acclaimed vegan nutrition guide, Thrive, Brendan Brazier presents his own easy-to-apply system, complete with detailed exercise and photos, Brendan explains his ground-breaking approach to fitness and how you can gain maximum results in minimal time. Thrive Fitness is not simply a program; it's a way of life.
Brendan developed Thrive Fitness to quickly and proficiently increase overall strength without developing muscle mass. Strong muscles = efficient muscles, therefore the stronger a muscle is, the less energy it needs to expend for movement. Consequently, Thrive Fitness is a means to significantly boosting energy - by creating a more efficient body, one that moves with grace and ease - while expending little energy to do so. The result is not just a major boost in athletic performance, but an enhanced overall quality of life. Greater functionally boosts energy, sleep quality, and the immune system. Yet it decreases fatigue, risk of disease, and sugar/caffeine cravings.
Having raced Ironman triathlons professionally for seven years, Brendan shares his high yield, time-saving training techniques in Thrive Fitness.
