We have all heard the claims that you can't build or maintain muscle mass on a plant-based diet. These claims have accumulated quite a following with the backing of many strongmen, bodybuilders, and professional athletes over the years.

Now that spring has finally sprung and we are heading into warmer weather, we can creep out of the warm caves we have been hiding in all winter and take our exercises to the outdoors. From exercises as simple as a walk or morning run to full body calisthenics or muscle beach style gym workouts. One thing remains the same. The ability to breathe fresh air and experience nature while you are training. This can be an amazing experience, as well as a saddening one due to the excess amount of litter polluting our roadsides, bikes trails, hiking trails, beaches, rivers, lakes, and just about anywhere else outside. This is something to reflect and take action on and no better time to do so than during your workouts!
