Yoga poses to prevent shoveling injuries

I was shoveling about 10cm of snow last weekend and could feel my back and shoulders ache a bit. Luckily yoga can help strengthen the back and shoulders and improve flexibility to reduce the risk of injury. Here are a few poses for your neck, back and shoulders:

1. Neck Release. Place your finger tips as far away beside you as possible. Bring your right ear…

My Guide to Motivation on Long Rides

With September (also known as mini-New Years) here I am reading a lot of articles about staying motivated and on track with fitness goals. They mean well, and are true in theory but very difficult in practice. As someone who rides alone a lot, I have a pretty good handle on getting in the kilometers even when your brain is desperately trying to talk you out of it. Here are my training secrets, may they serve you well.

 

  1. Visit friends or relatives who live in a rural area…

Vega and traveling

I'll be going on vacation again soon - this time to St John in the Virgin Islands, and a concern for any vegan on vacation is: what am I going to eat? 

I remember going to an all-inclusive in Cabo San Lucas and worried about nutrition. It was 5-star so I was sure they would have a lot of fresh produce, but then I was worried if it was contaminated, washed, left out too long, etc. The only thing that kept me calm about my nutrition was bringing along Vega. Every morning just having the…

Get Your Calcium Without Having A Cow!

Get Your Calcium Without Having a Cow

Get your Calcium! We hear so often about the importance of calcium. We need it for bone health, muscle contractility and nerve conduction etc. Many seek out this amazing mineral going straight to the dairy route, and what better way to get your daily in take than through a creamy, smooth tub of greek yogurt. That's healthy, right? Except for the fact that there is an excess of acidic whey waste (extremely toxic) that…

A Little Goes A Long Way

I was listening to an audio book on my way home from Las Vegas today, and the author said something very important. If people made tiny changes to their lives and did it consistently, big changes will occur over time. Of course I know this, however, to consciously practice it is another thing! I have always wanted to be able to do the splits and be extremely fit and limber. Had I stretched a little every day, I would've achieved that goal already. The same concept applies to diet.If I ate…

Question about Iodine content

Hey there!

I recently discovered the Vega products and love them - thanks!

question - I have Graves Disease, which means I have to be very aware of my iodine intake, essentially reducing it to near zero.  I have been using VEGA SPORT vanilla protein supplement but can't find anywhere that lists the iodine content.  

if you could let me know, and any other Vega products that might be suitable (iodine free) that would be…

Is Vega corn free?

Before this week I already knew about my wheat and dairy allergies, but just this week found out that I am also allergic to corn.

It is my recollection that all the Vega products used to be labeled as "wheat-free, dairy-free, soy free and corn free" but the new, re-designed packages now just list "wheat-free, dairy-free and soy free".  Did something change in the way Vega is being produced?

I personally use the Vega Sport Energy powder pre-workouts and Vega One…

Advancing Your Whole Entity through Increasing Your VEGA Identity

Advancing Your Whole Entity through Increasing Your VEGA Identity

As an extreme athlete pursuing the magical place beyond our limitations, VEGA has been a nutritional base allowing me to cross some of those performance and training boundaries. It is my belief that routine and timing, in using the VEGA Sport System products, is key to my ability to move beyond normal recovery and even normal benefits from training.

 

My…

Just getting started.

Hi all, 

I've decided to join the Vega community because I wanted to know more about the products and how others are utilizing them. I'm fairly new as a Vega user, my first purchase were the pre-Workout packets; they aren't the best tasting item but they do work, I used the pre-workout packets to help with my concentration during my classes (I'm a university student). Although I didn't like the taste, I continued to use it until summer 2012. I've picked it up again, I'm using the…
