Former WWE wrestler Ryback Reeves says his strength is ‘increasing each week’ since going vegan.

The American athlete, also known as ‘The Big Guy’, recently posted an Instagram video to his 1.4 million followers showing what he described as the ‘largest vegan arms the planet’.

‘Body fat keeps dropping’

He captioned the post: “Gonna thank Austin Healyaries, [he] meets me one time and in less than a year I go from part-time Vegetarian to full-time Performance and Compassion Eater and have zero intentions of going back. 

“It’s getting better each week and strength increasing each week while [my] body fat keeps dropping. Been around 292 lbs and today got 71 full burpees in seven minutes and felt great after. 

“No matter how you eat, adding more nutrient-dense vegetables and fruits with things like chia seeds, hemp hearts, nutritional yeast, flax seeds, and pistachios will change your life.”

‘Whatcha gonna do when these plant-based vegan arms come for you?’

‘I keep seeing improvements’

Last month the star showed off his shredded physique in a Twitter post, captioned: “seven weeks vegan and [my]bodyweight is 292 lbs. I just keep seeing improvements and energy increasing even more.

“Conditioning is at a very high-level cardio wise and I don’t have any intentions of eating animal or dairy products. Lab work completed yesterday, so will see where we are at.”
