This week’s episode is one of my all time favourites. Instead of our usual setup in the leather chairs at London Real Studios, I met Steve Maxwell at his hotel room to go through his daily workout.
For those of you who don’t know Steve Maxwell, he is one of my favourite people. He’s a living legend. Not only is he a 64 year old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, but he travels the world as a nomad teaching people how to move, breathe, and think.
With a twinkle in his eye, Steve shares with us his secrets to living a life of vitality – including literally stripping down and doing his favourite health promotion technique.
Watch as we discuss:
– How he trained with the Gracie family before the UFC existed
– How to stay fit, any place and time.
– Steve’s daily anti-ageing techniques – including some Chi Qong and Russian Slavic Health Systems
– Why sticking your tongue out and crossing your eyes is good for your immune system
– How Steve was able to go from severely near sighted to throwing his glasses away
– Why he swishes coconut oil for 20 min in his mouth
– How to keep your sexual organs healthy and preserve your youth and vitality
– Why he only eats two meals a day
– Why he believes that exercise takes no vacation
