 London  Vegfest 2017


Seated dumbbell shoulder press...





Vegfest London is one of the biggest vegan events in Europe.  The event is always great fun and we meet a lot of old friends there.

Amy, Carlos, Patrik & Nathan

This year we had Carlos Barbon, strongman and owner of Veggie Style supplements, Figure athlete Amy Murray and Personal Trainer Nathan Loughton (all seen here with Patrik Baboumian one of the strongest men Germany has ever produced!), so we knew it was going to be a lively stall.

We met a lot of people over the weekend, including Paul (Hench herbivore), who popped along to help out on the stall and helped the punters get those "Plant Based Gains"!!!!

The Saturday evening was a lot of fun with Carlos being the only one worse off at the end of the evening :-)


Luckily it was all a bit of fun. We ended up in the Sanctuary cafe and had a fantastic time there.


Seated dumbbell shoulder press

The Contest at this years event was the ever popular seated shoulder press, with ladies lifting a 7Kg dumbbell and the guys lifting a 15Kg dumbbell.

Womens contest

The womens contest was ram packed this year with dozens of entrants! So many you'll notice the video had to be speeded up or it would have run for ages! The winner was Laura who got a cracking 50 reps!

Mens contest

You will notice many less guys than the ladies.  This is not because there were less male entrants, but because we had so many ladies that we overran and had to cut the contest short! It is a real shame as we had a lot of very keen guys looking to compete this year. So, these are the guys who did compete.  I think Ben would have been hard to beat with 49 reps though!
