John Hinds is a former NBA strength and conditioning coach and is currently a consultant for both the NFL and NBA. John trained Darryl Strawberry (New York Yankees), Glen Braggs (Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals), Charles Smith (New York Knicks), Anfernee Hardaway (Phoenix Suns), Eric Davis (St. Louis Cardinals), Lucious Harris (New Jersey Nets) and members of the L.A. Clippers.

In an interview with (click HERE for the interview in it’s entirety), Jon explained his nutrition philosophy:

“For nutrition, I use a simple plan called the “Hand Plan”. The “Hand Plan” follows simple portion control with a plant based diet. Most people love to eat meat, or believe that you need to eat meat to keep or gain muscle, but I am trying to do and teach what is most healthy for the body and the environment and eating animal products is not the way.”

“We suggest people eat 90% or more plant based foods. This has proven extremely effective for burning fat as we average 17 pounds of fat loss and 5 pounds of muscle gain in the first 60 days of Monkey Bar Gymnasium training and nutrition.”

“The “Hand Plan” is simple: eat portion sizes that are as big as your open hand, keeping the majority of the plate or bowl green foods. Keep plenty of nuts, seeds and legumes in your intake as well.”

    Is it possible for vegans in their 70s to gain muscle with resistance training?
    I have been vagan for approximately 8 months now and vegetarian for close to 50 years with the major consideration being cheese consumption-now Diaya, a non dairy cheese.
    I look forward to your response!
