Meet The Shredded 19 Year Old Vegan Bodybuilder

Last Updated on 08/02/2018 by C-Jay

Jack Stayner, 19, turned to weightlifting at the age of 14 – becoming inspired by superheroes and action movie stars alike. But less than two years down the line, he’s earned an incredible physique of his own. Now, he’s set his sights on becoming a successful bodybuilder.

Jack has come a long way since he became serious with bodybuilding back in 2016. Ever since then, he’s reached the bodybuilding stage – earning a second-placed finish at the 2017 World Natural Bodybuilding Federation competition.

But his fitness ambitions don’t stop there, as he plans to earn further success as a bodybuilder. He now works as a personal trainer at his local gym – allowing him to reach his own fitness goals alongside helping others achieve theirs.

Not only that, Jack even adopted a Vegan diet, which has allowed him to achieve amazing results. It is thought by many that eating meat is required to build an incredible physique. Well, Jack has certainly proved them all wrong!

Achieving His Dream Physique

Speaking in an interview with The Daily Star, Jack stated that going vegan was the best decision he’d ever made, in his quest to build his ultimate physique:

“I had been interested in going vegan for a long time but was too afraid due to stereotypes of losing muscle and potentially hindering my training in the gym.

“After lots of research I fully convinced myself that it was possible to reach my bodybuilding goals and be vegan at the same time.

“The next day I turned vegan and never looked back.”

“My change in diet was met by a lot of people telling me it was a bad decision and questioning why I would even think about stopping eating meat.

“To my surprise it was a lot easier than I first anticipated and it didn’t affect my training in a negative way. I felt I lost no muscle, strength or energy. In fact, I felt cleaner than ever, my sleeping pattern improved and my recovery time shortened.”
