Jared has been Vegan Strong since 2012, and is a competitive powerlifter.
He's a VeganStrong Powerlifter from Vegas. He has been vegan for 7 years and is still smashing PRs at every meet he competes at - and he is two weeks out from his next one!
There's no bigger misconception regarding a Vegan lifestyles negative effect on muscle building, endurance and overall strength, and Jared is just the man to prov that mindset wrong by putting up some serious numbers in the Open Powerlifting Database, while weighing a solid 180 lbs and just manhandling squats, bench and deadlifts:
Raw Squats - 352.7 lbs.
Raw Bench - 264.5 lbs
Deadlifts - 556.6
He is the Nevada state record holder in deadlift for his 183-pound weight class, pulling more than 556 pounds.
Jared is known for being able to deadlift three times his bodyweight, resides in Las Vegas, NV, and his favorite vegan meal is eating Impossible Burgers.
