He’s also one of my most favorite guys in the whole world For 65 years of age he has a twinkle in his eye like a 25 year old And that’s because Steve travels the world teaching Teaching people how to move how to breathe and had a thing Steve travels with less than 10 kilograms on his back only the bare essentials And he has no home. He’s a no man Once a year. He comes by and tapes an episode of London real And on the same day I’d book him an appointment for one year in the future We’ve been doing this for three years in a row Except this time Steve sent me a video and wanted to do something different Hi, Brian Hey, I had a great idea for the podcast I Want to show you my hotel.

There’s no excuses X’s up stinks vacation So I put my training clothes on and I’m off or a new kind of adventure with Steve Once upon a time Steve had the American dream the wife the kids the big house of business But he walked away from all His martial arts pedigree is ridiculous He wrestled in college was a Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt in the 80s He trained with the Gracie family before the UFC was even created Steve is a ton of fun and has amazing ideas and that’s why I always have him back on one for me On the train with Steve Maxell in his hotel room.

I’m supposed to be in a three-piece suit sitting in the leather chairs having a conversation with you at London real studios But you tell me to come here to your hotel room. What’s going on well? I want to share with you my workout secrets. Okay now I make my living online with clients right and many times they report to me Oh Steve I got off my diet I got off my program because I was traveling I was in holiday I was in business. I gained 5 6 pounds I say No excuse Exercise takes no vacation diet takes no vacation so a lot of people are mystified that We become so gym dependent right that we forget that hey man all you need is your body I guess you want to show me how you can train in and a little space like this ok? And you’re the guy that basically you travel the world so you’re kytravels alone, man. You wouldn’t believe it I was in China for two weeks Shanghai and Beijing Went to Moscow it was in Moscow for about two weeks went from Moscow to where did I go my god? I? Forget sometimes I went to Ireland and now I’m here I leave from here to Sarajevo and Bosnia then to New York So I’m living in hotels right so you’re living this reality And I’m living it right as opposed to some guy who’s fixed in one location who’s got a gym you’re living in this reality You’re about to show me exactly know as a former gym owner I ain’t nothing against gyms right, but I tell you most gyms I don’t like too distracting the music alone is enough to drive it crazy You know your your your looking at the pretty girls in the treadmill when you should be Concentrating your pull-ups or whatever too easy to get distracted The other thing too. I think a lot of the equipment is is it’s just not well designed I’d rather just use my bodyweight the best equipment God could possibly give you, but I had another Thing I want to show you too There’s a man ages you have to take more and more care of your body You need to really really start to do what I call health promoting activities. It’s activity Where you are trying to keep your doing anti-aging type techniques part of it is a shake on? Part of it is the Russian Slovak health system. You know this is the fourth time We’ve had you on London real and and the reason I always have Steve back because first of all he’s an OG Right which in prison is what they call the original gangsters I mean look this guy was training with the Gracie’s before the UFC even started You know black belt in jujitsu decorate their other garage. They were in the garage. This is like what late 80s Early 90s Yeah, yeah, and you know been there done that wrestled wrestle in the army as well right yeah You know you’ve trained Joe Rogan you travel the world and so when Steve talks I listen First of all and you always have these really interesting perspectives, and he’s literally on the move He travels the world with 10 kgs of stuff We’re gonna get into that later too and every time I talk to you. I realize it’s not really about fitness it’s about all aspects of your life your biology the mentality so I think we’re gonna touch on that stuff today and your health is precious you know you I Know many people that would give up everything they don’t just to buy back their their health and once lost It’s really hard to gain back, so I’m all yours all right. You know. What did he got planned for me well Let’s start with that good morning from the start morning, which yeah ok a big fan of sleep as well So I’ll wake up in the morning. Yeah, and I’ll reach over. I’ll get my iPhone, and I’ll measure my resting pulse right I don’t get any money for this But this is called insta heart rate. Yeah, okay, are we monitor? This is something? Yeah? It’s probably a million of them. There’s the little light I stick my little finger on there And then it starts to count okay if it’s a fiver beats more than my average Let’s say my average is 46 yeah, and I would wake up and it’s like near fifty right or 51 I’m not gonna work out because I’m gonna be active right, but I’m not gonna really train, so it shows that you’ve over trained I’m Robert red Yeah
Okay as I’ve never used this the other one is the cns C in the C and s tap test okay? And what you do is you put it down and this is my right hand this measures How well your nervous system has recovered okay reaction time yeah, and so here I’ll turn it this way so the camera can see and You tap the index finger And you’re trying to go as fast as your fast as you can okay? How long’s the timing for all right, and then I can say Okay, and then you do the left hand and I’ll just do okay. Yeah. Hey judge differ Sir my left is a little bit better because I got arthritis in the ring So what this is doing is measuring all right and safe And then I can go and I can look at the little chart graph both hands You do this every morning, so you’re tracking. Yeah, so I’m tracking okay? There’s the graph so I’m down just a little I’ve been a little tired But you can see like when I’m not recovered as opposed to when I am recovered okay, all right So those two will tell you if you’re recovered well well And and what about the old adage of just trained anyways tough it out well That’s a good way to get over trained or start to burn yourself out or get injured now when I say not training I’m still doing something okay. I’m gonna go out, and I’m gonna walk. I’ll do breathing. I’ll do joint mobility I’m just not training hard. Okay. Do you call this active rest not? I’m a fighters call yeah. I call like active recovery Some people call it non-exercise activity Okay, because I don’t count anything as exercise except for strength training That’s the only true exercise okay, running is an activity okay. You get so you get some. It’s an activity. It’s a sport It’s fun It’s a hobby, but it’s not exercise you get exercise benefit, but it doesn’t constitute the five point definition of lectures Okay, interesting so for me. It tells me should I do any strength training or shouldn’t I do? strength training okay, and if I do non-exercise activity How strenuous should I go all right so? First thing I do is I’m vigorous head michelle’s and you just very vigorously massage the scalp in the hand and you try to move The scalp this keeps the oil flowing and keeps the hair really nice and lustrous of course I cut my hair very short, but you have hair still you know yeah, I had plenty no you too And I could grow older yet, but it’s just easier to travel with it so is this perfect for not for hair loss Or is this for what is this for everything everything just to keep the hair loss Tristan, okay? Yeah, and keep it there as well and keep it there as well and also notice how awake you feel feel better already Yeah, it’s it’s just a way to kind of waking up the body and then right here above the eyes There’s a little hole you can fill the depression you feel that oh, yeah. This is this is Chi Kong. Yeah, okay? Chi, Kong is a it’s a it’s a stimulation point for eyes And you just push and then take your knuckle and then trace the eyebrow out and back and then under and back in eight times I used to wear glasses and I was so nearsighted if like if I was looking at your camera, man. I wouldn’t even his face would be a bar, okay and Every year, I was getting thicker and thicker lens heavier prescription. I was thinking Jesus Christ oh, I’m gonna go blind right so I Picked up this book called take off your glasses and see I literally took the glasses and threw him in the trash as as The book just get them off the glasses we’re becoming a crotch, and then eyes improved a lot now I’m still a little nearsighted, but man. I’m telling you I can drive. That’s without glasses I could never do that before okay, so that that was the little R thing, then I do some yoga, okay, and you look up To the eyebrows in doubt and you go ten times up and down Yeah, so you’re looking up through eyebrows yeah, and then you look down. Okay, you’re not moving your head No, okay, the tens days you want to move your head right and what you’re doing is you’re working on those those eyeball muscles right you got muscles in your eyes that become shortened and weak and Then you get a side-to-side. You look side to side, and I just do an arbitrary ten Sometimes they go more, and then you do clockwise circles okay clockwise So this is nothing when the oh one ever thinks about right working eyeballs never but I’ll tell their muscles like you’re anything else yeah, and then you reverse like I say I Are you ten and? I go nice and slow and it’s like doing joint mobility for their eyes okay, and then you can hold Like a writing like something like something Okay, whole food napkin right yes that made with recycled and then I’ll hold and then I’ll bring the slowly to the eye And keep it in focus. I’ve forced it to stay in focus. Okay, so you okay? I got you, and I’ll even go smaller print than this so oh it is just some little print Yeah, just average how whole foods, but yeah See training your eye to your yeah. I stay focused I forces to stay focused I force it to stay focused okay Yeah Oh my I thought my eye doctor Says, this is what he said that the lens in your eye is like your fingernails in your hair And it’s constantly growing and as you get to the 40s that can no longer push that thing and your muscles are weak That’s what he says well read the book take off. Well the guy was also an eye doctor Who used to routinely perform eye surgeries and says everything I learned in medical school is? Nonsense and I know the more I want she’s guys. It’s it’s a racket. You can spend a lot of money And I came back a year later. He’s like. Yep. You need a whole new prescription. Yeah, really Yeah, I didn’t cost me and I was like man. You know you see something. I’m basically 40 I read the book first okay 40 in my eyes is harder all right You can get it right to the point where it goes out of focus, but don’t go Yeah, some forcing my eyes to stay focused and I would recommend even something smaller print than that okay You’re really forced to okay Well, you know I’ve noticed in the last few years that I have glasses And I use them kind of at night with the computer and so it’d be nice to my mother I beg quite a few hours myself so next you know I don’t have glasses anymore know Me I’m serious mr.. Miyagi okay, healing energy breath, I gotta say Karate Kid look I didn’t invent any of stuff. Okay you Skeptics out there. I like said where’s the double-blind studies, you ain’t gonna see any cuz there’s gonna pay for a study like that It’s gonna put all the optometrist out of business all I know is what worked for me all right now You palm the eyes, this is what you do when you’re working like on the computer for hours You just need to just kind of rest the eyes okay, and energize them a little bit. I’m telling you right now I went from thick coke bottle lenses to not needing any glasses at all You know it’s weird Steven because we grew up in America, and it’s very westernized And we’re taught that all these things work this way and when you start getting exposed to some of these quote-unquote eastern ideas Your initial reaction is to reject them. Yeah, of course I you know I mean it’s naturally and violently reject them violently like oh no that can’t be But I’m telling you I’ve always had an open mind. I thought well what the hell it takes just a couple minutes to do this thing what if it does work right and after reading the book I became a real believer Interesting I found that the more I my opened myself up to things like meditation and you know visualization and even the stuff that manTech was talking about like I went into that episode thinking there’s no way I want to talk about Massaging my organs or my sexual organs or anything, but the more I look into this there’s stuff there. I’m Johnny man I’ve talked to many many elderly Chinese guys You know I met this guy that was damn near 90 years old. He got moved like a kid. You know it was like He’s doing something right and it’s almost like Americans, and I love America. I don’t live there anymore you live around the world it’s almost like America is going the opposite direction or lethargic worst diet Bad mentality or there’s now the fattest nation on earth Well the more I speak with people like you and everybody else that comes through the show the more I am thinking that this is the way forward and not this this other way of thinking and it takes time and it takes dedication Right you can’t be a lazy ass and expect your health to be good You got to really take it take you know all right, so do this types of vomiting here You gotta you I take risk mine doesn’t have to exactly be this. I’m only sharing what I do What works for me, but everything I’m showing I didn’t invent. I learned it from some dude. That was like you know 80s 90s Oh, okay, hearing okay? Hearing yes, so we did is Really big in my family First you start with the lobes And you just kind of gently by the way they just don’t want you to take a look at Steve’s ears This comes from wrestling this is Very rational you ever see a guy walking down the street with cauliflower ears Be nice to him Because he’s probably put in more Matt time than you have put in say a college education in some countries There’s a Badge of Courage right anyway you start here and pull and then you start to massage the ear all on the outside You know you’ve heard of foot reflexology Yeah, and well you have ear reflexology to all the pressure points that working in the body and say you get good vigorous massage, okay? You think and then these two bones back here behind, you know right you massage vigorously with the thumbs, okay? and Then the next step is you cover the ear and form like a seal and you use index fingers And you drum right here on this bone, and it should sound like a boom boom like this. Yeah, so watch me first okay? It’s called drums of heaven drums of heaven Okay, okay, so 36 of those all right, so that’s the ears and now digestion okay, all right? So you’re gonna click your teeth all 36 times There was 36 for me. I’ve noticed keep the slob in the mouth, okay It’s almost like you’re stimulating saliva before it’s called juice of jade and it was The the dowas are very much into Slava as being very good for digestion like an electro now you’re gonna Take your tongue. You may get very tired and fatigued. I’m gonna trace the outside of your teeth 36 times clockwise and counterclockwise And keep the slob in there don’t slow Then there I was away Whore huh you burning because the tongue is wet You could spend a whole day doing this routine mm-hmm Now place the tongue keep the swap so having them behind the front teeth and Swallow when the tongue push together and make noise And to all the Salafis on And the taoist masters believes this is incredibly good for the digestion process said that justin starts in the mouth also It’s really good gum stimulation, okay The slava is very alkalizing you know for a sitting sitting mouth and things like that there’s another reason Why isn’t really really important to breathe through the nose and nothing the mouth, okay? You really help dental health quite a bit by? Okay, all right now. You know is it a little stuffy right? Yeah, so now you’re gonna exhale yeah, and normal exhale, and then hold the breath while pinching the nose and covering the mouth and Then when you feel strong roots to breathe Inhale through the nose again Nice huh You just go to the point where you feel like you want to breathe doesn’t have to be a real wall And notice how it opened up so it opened up because I had exhaled through it now it held it opens up because you’re producing nitric oxide in the Linings of the nasal passages you produce enough, okay, which really helps open up all your blood vessels in your whole body And why did it produce it then just there well it just stimulates the production then oh it’s always there That’s why you always want to breathe through your nose because you miss the benefits of nitric oxide when you inhale through the mouth Okay Okay, night your oxide opens the blood vessels dilate and helps blood flow so I know so sometimes like if it’s still clogged I’ll do the the old the old yoga Reversed Over one side and I’ll force it. I’ll just keep breathing time. What’s the point of that single nasal breathing? Are you’re just opening up one block side, okay? You know the idea is just I block it Okay, so I do realize that a lot of the listeners They’re busy. Family guys careers. You know so I place a big premium of my health because I’m a health and fitness Lecturer and also I work for myself. I have a lot of time You know I don’t go to a nine-to-five job, so I do understand, but if you just did just this eye ear thing maintenance yeah you you could go a long way to Improving your basic health okay the other thing. I’ll do then is a thyroid massage, okay I’ll take and hold my hand behind my neck here. Yeah, tuck my head, and I hold the no annex no 36 Other side and that’s what the thyroid is thought There’s a lot of this massaging of the organs that that is an Eastern thing Oh, yeah, very easy you see people walking down the street with a little slappers tapping. You know okay, then I cap And then stick your tongue out and cross your eyes Called hungry line is a yoga technique, but it’s also dowser, and Chi Chi you see it in all the Asian Okay, hungry lion enclosure eyes it Looks pretty weird can almost like a Maori tribal right no when the buyers are doing how it is the Hakka? What’s this doing Also stimulated digestion and working the thyroid bringing notice the blood a great way to get rid of sore throat Yeah, if you start to get a little sore throat sometimes right you know so it’s all helping the immune system Okay, you know and there’s many many other tapping drills I don’t know I can get into the whole thing, but this is a good basic But there’s a good basic route takes about 10 minutes, and then when I’m in bed Massage the upper abdomen clockwise and then cross counterclockwise either side of the belly button and then push down and Then without getting too, too, too. Well without getting too graphic Yeah, yeah, you know you you you massage the penis between your hands 50 times 50 times 50 And then you take the spermatic cords on either side of the is the base of the penis and you rub back and forth You’ll feel these two cords They’re like little tubes, and then you shove the balls over to one side and hold with the penis And then you rob 36 and then both balls 36 Okay, all right, then you take each testicle and twist 50 times Okay, and then you cup the testicles But the penis sticking through all right 36 times lower abdomen and then switch 36 times counterclockwise, okay? And then you breathe By the way when you’re doing this this cause the GR exercise you’re pulling up in the muscles of the base of the pelvis The the muscles that would prevent urine flow right or prevent or the toilet excuse me your caucus okay, and then You lie and then you image from the perineum Energy going up the spine. Okay. Is the top of the head down to the front and back okay, young men are always? you know Losing their vital energy putting it on so you’re learning to seal that energy in okay And it’s interesting the Dow is actually have an ejaculation short. Yeah, well, yeah, and I read about this Yeah, so guys my age a healthy guy I should that’s right well every every a Healthy guy by every ten days already nice right and for people that don’t understand. How your essence could be there I mean, what do you say to that you know what it’s not for you You know if you don’t get it. You know get it. You know. I’m not trying to convince anyone. I’m just sharing people with people Though I think I’m moving pretty goddamn good for 65 year old I’m certainly no prude. I’ve certainly had my share of You know sex in my day right, so I’m not anti sexual. I’m just saying that as you get older you need to preserve Your your youth in your by tality You just can’t be you know going on spoon it and all these things the only investment really is just a time Commitment yeah, you know which I have maybe you don’t but you just have to look at you know You know what your priorities are in life for me at my age now The health is their priority because you can start to feel things starting to slip away You know yeah, and of course we’re all going to die Yeah, you know But I would like to be able to go into that death gracefully without suffering without spending ten twenty years On a walker or wheelchair, and and you know I’m just just dying a very slow pain I would like to be able to go like Jack LaLanne my Ellery Gracie right today You just go and just one day You don’t get up, buddy Active until then and I would argue that people do have the time and when people tell me I’m too busy to meditate I’m like you don’t have 20 minutes in The morning of the night in your bed where you can sit up and do it and for these things you’ve got time to check Your iPhone you got time to be on Facebook, but you don’t have time to like massage your vital organs You know I just talked to a young girl in China Right and she was telling me that she’s so addicted to her I found that she is ashamed of the time she spends in social media And and she’s because I was telling her she needs to get a morning routine says follow what your people have done for you know Countless countless centuries and besides what guy doesn’t like to play with his balls in this? It’s the original the original play the original PlayStation. Yeah the original joystick You can’t take it as far as you want to Know it’s just about Keeping the organs healthy, okay, alright, so that’s a good breakdown of all these different massage techniques well see if it works You know you might think I’m crazy But I’m telling you I’ve seen guys a lot older than me that are just unbelievably spry and fit I think I’m going to stick with the advice from from these older venerable gentlemen yeah because I see what’s going on with that are they an Anomaly, or they may be a freak Mate but I’ve just seen too many do not believe it Alright, so that’s the general routine I actually do that in bed all that stuff before that embeds all the massaging all that Even though I took a long time to videotape because we’re talking and I can get through that thing pretty quick 15 20 minutes Okay, all right, and it’s every day every single And if you skip it you start to probably feel it or you just don’t anymore I just don’t I just it’s just not worth skipping. Yeah. I actually I woke up really late had a flight I skipped it, but then I was on the plane doing my eyes. You know Obviously not massaging my balls But you know I was juicing teeth clicking the tongue on this early flight so a lot of stuff you can do Incognito people don’t even know what you’re doing Even all right now good. What’s next next is I’m going to show you The continuation stuff that you would do in the bathroom, okay, all right so war journey in here, okay? All right you got a few devices here. Yeah, this is a tongue scraper. It’s a better tongue Yeah, you you wouldn’t believe the waste products that build up in the tongue overnight, okay, and you just basically stick the tongue out And spray hangs hoarse rinse right now the tongue is pretty clean, okay? You wouldn’t believe the mucus and all the waste stuff that you pull off And there’s a lot of you know capillaries and the tongue so you absorb that stuff if you get up and Just start drinking your coffee or run downstairs and eat right away you want to get rid of that out of the okay? So just one one or two yeah one or two scrape okay, and then I? Travel with I use a baking soda toothpaste. These are little Pellets is many different truth bases, but I’ll just take one of these little pellets stick it in my mouth and chew it up Thank You soda yeah, it’s baking soda a little baking soda And then I used a little sonic toothbrush you can hear it. Those are nice and Boy, you’re really good for getting the plaque but I like it cause it’s so small two speeds really massage the gums and the teeth okay and and no fluorides or other there’s just natural baking soda, and then the next is the neti pot and Kind of phallic ooh, you got some crazy devices I’ve seen this before and you fill this with warm water right up to the second one and how do you know? it’s warm you you Take and put on your form so it’s not too Hot you get it, and then you take a spoonful of sea salt, which I get from Whole Foods And you just mix it in there, and then you take one end and pour literally through one nostril And then you see there’s like the halfway point right there right and then you Do the other side so it goes up? One nostril up into the nose of cavity and comes out the other nose, and it comes out the other and there you go, so it’s Good for opening up the nose helping You breathe a little bit better washes away any debris if you are certain to get like a little head cold a little Sinus infection the warm saline solution is very gentle sounds horrible right yeah Like my the only experience I ever had of getting water in my nose was when I was a kid swimming And that was incredibly painful and uncomfortable So when someone first told me about this is that are you crazy and then I try this is wow this is really nice I’ve tried It’s really nice and gentle and it’s warm and it can really I mean it can really cut back on those cold symptoms I really can you can do this a couple of times during cold flu season and it’s a preventative So really really good ok that’s every morning. Yeah, every morning, and then I will Wow, the water is in the head sometimes it gets trapped. I have a little Scout massager, and I’ll just bend over the sink and just really give my head a really good going-over Similar to what you were doing in the morning yeah, you’re on him But when you massage the head vigorously sometimes trapped water in the sinuses but the neti pot will Run out and I’ll usually do it over the bathtub and just get my head way down and then any extra water will run out Okay, and then The last phase of the oral stuff is This is coconut oil with fennel. I’ll take a mouthful and oil is called oil pulling You swish the oil from side to side okay great for oral health many of my clients As you know I do online personal training and health promotions with people They just had tremendous results. I’ve had some people doing this for a number of years They said their oral health and the dental health has never been better Gums teeth everything just perfect working order some people do this instead of brushing teeth some people do I I? Recommend that you scrape you still brush your teeth. I believe you should floss okay You know on a daily basis. I didn’t say I have a leg little toothpick things that I I like it better than thread okay. You know it’s a little special toothpick. The brushes are was the little brushes Okay a brush and then I’ll oil pool for 20 minutes because what I counted minutes 20 minutes just wishing that oils I’ll just walk around doing other stuff. Okay, wow I’m oil swishing right the next thing I brought I bought you a little present Brian. Thank you This is Unused I took the tags off. That’s yours. It’s a natural bristle brush, okay, and I I do? Skin brushing okay, and I first read about this when I was younger. It’s called Swedish dry brush massage Okay a couple different variations one is you brush the skin dry because think of it this way the integumentary system Your skin is the largest organ in your body and the skin is so important? one third of all waste does be is eliminated through sweat your you know it’s a it’s a It’s a self sealing protective Mechanism to keep keep bad stuff out It’s just really important to keep the skin, and we don’t maintain. We don’t mean you know people will slab you know oils and sunscreens and all that kind of stuff, okay, but Brushing the skin, I mean people brush their pets Horses horses dogs cats You know we we have some hair on our body micro, but you know the the small circular Brushes okay really really important all right, and it really good for improving circulation getting rid of Lymphatic you know lymph return to the body. I’ve been doing this since I’ve been young okay There is some Some people say you should be very careful this in the face, but you know I shave Like every other day or so, but so I will brush the the the face a little bit But gently and the neck okay, and you start with the soles of the feet okay, and then you work your way up the leg We’re gonna do this little circuit. Yeah, you want to do it now. Yeah, let’s do it, man. Okay. Let’s do it, okay? Let’s go. Let’s get some more room out here. Yeah I Got a speedo underneath there so The boxers sound good. Yeah, we’re good so Show Europe I think if you only had one health promotion Let’s say forget to I massage everything else if you just brush the skin every day We’re gonna do some skin brushing here folks real talk with Steve man Yeah, right London real So natural natural bristle brush You don’t want to have harsh bristles okay, natural bristles there should be some what of course somewhat firm Okay Good and once again the skin system is the biggest organ in the body and the idea is to always go towards the heart Okay, so you start with the soles of the feet? In a circular motion right circular motions, and then you start to work towards the knees I’ll go back and hit the ankles then come back up that’s little circles and Any rough spots or dry patches you give a little extra touch up the IT band And through you know you’re working all these Olymp nodes. You know get the circulation back It’s not just about the skin and of course you know I normally I’d be naked I do the butt and that you’ll it’s the testicles and get up underneath okay And then you go to the other side you put the bottom of the feet to start off with you know yeah And then you start to wear those nice, yeah, good, any is vigorous it’s supposed to be vigorous And it makes the skin really lustrous and soft and smooth and It keeps it youthful okay? Now that we did the legs right and in the butt next you start with your fingernails and your hands And you just keep working up towards the heart the back of your arm And I’ll do this just before getting into the shower, okay And then I’ll go to the other side okay Square into the skin and this is time-honored I mean the Fans the Swedes the Danes the Germans even the Russians have their versions The Japanese with the loofahs, and how they do in the baths. Yeah, yeah, so I mean skin then and then the neck Once again watch the little easy so yeah, you don’t want to injure the skin, okay? traps I usually do my forehead and doing it dry was this your idea, but no no this is the Traditional sweet dry dry before you go in the bath before you go to the shower now There’s another version where you shower then do it. Okay? You can scrub in the shower, but I like to do it dry and then Okay, and then pecs okay, yeah and then abdominals Working. I’ll usually work down to the groin. Okay. Don’t wanna get too graphic If it was really London really would just you know take the shorts off Now Okay, you cannot get rid of body fat by rubbing or massaging or that that’s however not my my Rover Said that you can smooth that out Okay, you can actually take fat cells like what they called Depot fat and kind of smooth it and and and because you can actually Manipulate the connective fascial tissue right so they can help okay. They have after this One is do things either. I just take a cold cloth like a washcloth or a towel And I just wash myself off okay, and then I’ll go out and train run or do spider-man crawls or something okay skip rope Do calisthenics okay, or I’ll go into the shower and take an ice-cold shower. I’m like cold showers, okay? I don’t use the wim HOF, but I do use the burst breathing By the way, I want your oil squishing this whole time Oh really, especially while you’re doing this in the oil yeah And then I wipe off with the cold cloth cause then just wash every part of my body a lot of times I’ll shave okay. That’s tick tick you know is making the the time go by for the swishing. I’ll make my bed The the staff wasn’t here. I always make my own bed as a ritual okay, because I believe a messy disorganized room and disorganized Belongings is it disorganized mine, so it’s like a little morning ritual, okay? I just I just straighten everything up even before the hotel staff get here make sure everything’s put away I didn’t do it just for you guys. It’s just the way. I am okay guys it gets my mind organized and By that time the oil is just you know I was getting pretty close to the good 20 minutes Did the military teach you a lot of these base? Yeah, okay? I’m sure but then it’s probably still in your character upstairs this always part of my nature You know even before I I always made my own bed Even as a little kid okay, my mother had my brother and I we we did stuff You know we had to help around the house. We made our own beds. You know we Washed the dishes. Yeah, she took care of clothes But we did a lot of stuff around the house mowed the lawn you know okay way to start the day alright It’s good for kids to have these responsibilities and learn how to be responsible for themselves we had pets So we’re responsible for cleaning their cages And care the animals so look at me. I can’t stop scrubbing okay feels pretty Stimulating great. It does keep so you do get like Old dead skin cells and thing right some of its microscopic. It’s not even visible to the naked Eye, okay, and so like I said you take a washcloth, and then you just wash off rub it really well Okay a cold cloth and just I like to vigorously and then I wanted to show you the tower The Russian sauna me I pull it out here bring the towel out. Yeah, bring them, okay, so After the cold well during the cold shower I’m very bigoted affirmations. Yeah, I think that you can kind of mold your body with your mind, and I’ll rub myself in the freezing cold water I’ll say things like vise grip yeah, like Oh Dan Hodge they remember the famous wrestler yeah any hunting vice-grip he could break a pair of pliers with his hands. Okay, really like a Doug blue bar whatever that he’s like Merritt lately yeah, these are These are early American african-american Folk style wrestlers, I stopped by forms. You know while you’re rubbing baseball biceps all right horseshoe triceps You know let’s say you’re affirming back to your mother’s coconut. Del toys gladiator pecs super 8 pack Bruce Lee definition You know wrestler neck man relax grit God hips massage great. God hips and thighs You know you make little funny little affirmation Okay, that’s good censor your body right, but you know as you get to my age you start to rapidly lose that muscle mass and then Russian sauna masters showed me how to use the towel so after the cold shower and By the way if you don’t have time to do the dry brush and all this you can just take the shower and then Your normal shower then turn the water ice cold, and then just finish the last 30 seconds to a minute You don’t have to stand there like wim HOF air you just okay? I just get a good taper and then come out of there And then you start to really work the neck and the head vigorously Back and forth and the shoulders you know and then you you you you work your torso this way and worth the Torsen in this Way and then work the torso this way, and then you work. It across almost like you’re shining series You know from the front really vigorously working towards your heart But and it should be a really coarse towel like not soft like this Hotel sapphire now And then you get the towel between your legs And you start to vigorously give yourself a cup make it almost like like a shoeshine guy and then So it’s another way of keeping the skin Useful And you do this on top of the brush right under this browser brush. I’ll run short in time Maybe I’ll just do this. Okay. You know feet, and you know the whole thing okay, and then wow you’re ready man Okay, you just pumped up. You’re ready for an episode of London real, right? And why the cold shower? I just like the the the vigorous the vigorous of the it’s very stimulating to the skin as though the cold water therapies have been used forever right you don’t have to be a Masochist about it and stay in there for like 20 30 minutes if we’re not trying to be the Iceman okay Right and I make sure. I don’t panic breathe. Okay. I I will use the burst breathing Okay, yeah, just be some breathing later. Oh diaphragmatic okay, no longs no No Holding your breath right? Oh, that’s just Very similar to Hickson Gracie breathing yeah, so in so I Keep all this and it keeps you calm and sometimes oh It’s amazing you know the cold water doesn’t feel all that cold, but yeah, just a minute 90 seconds there’s no, okay, okay, but I do like to rub myself too, and how does this routine finish? Is this are you then done now? Yeah? I’m gone. You’re done with the physical body mental body maintenance Well some cool thing would have taken you 37 minutes maybe 40 minutes for you for me, I’ll have a Water, okay a cup of coffee or two I like my coffee, okay? Yeah, there’s nothing wrong with a little coffee as long as he’s don’t abuse it right you know and uh? Working my iPad for a few minutes, and then like clockwork right at 9:00 o’clock but boom. I’m out the door and I’ll walk Do breathing work or train okay? Depends on what is going on with the body and my recovery okay? I’ll come back, and I’ll have my breakfast okay, and I don’t eat my breakfast until usually pretty late in the day like noon or Somewhere between 10:00 in there depending on what time I get up if I get up at 4:00 It’s gonna be different than if I get up at 6:00. Okay, so you know I try to push it back, okay? God I hate to use the term intermittent fasting But if basically is an aerobatic principle where you don’t load a body with a lot of with a Digestive burden having a big breakfast. Yeah your your body is very Busy getting rid of metabolic waste from from the the day before So you don’t want to load it with this big digestive burden of a heavy Breakfast yeah, I agree, so I’ll usually eat pretty light okay You know usually you know it just depends what I’ve done if I worked out. I’ll have a protein based meal Okay, if I didn’t work out. Maybe I’ll have a starch-based meal okay. Yeah, all right and so and sometimes I’ll have three meals a day a lot of times. I only have two right now I’m on the two meal a day plan here in London. Okay, so I had a little something before you guys can okay and After you guys leave. I’ll probably have like a protein Meal probably chicken or something Oh, actually she already has it for me. I have actually eggs I’m gonna have eggs in the salad okay nice all right, so Now you’re gonna show me now It’s time to work it to work out all right So we would have done this whole thing we would a dry brush And then we would have worked out as opposed our I would have figured a little time a little cock You know I mean. I’m just showing the morning routine a little out of order. Oh good. You know it’s good sometimes like if I’m really hard pressed for time. I’m a train and then do this stuff afterwards.

100 thoughts on “STEVE MAXWELL – HOTEL WORKOUT – Part 1/2 | London Real

  1. Hahahaha balls and dick was the original joystick !! LOL … this man is just awesome and looks great for his age

  2. No thanks. I'll leave the swimming trunks. Why not just do a calisthenics routine and eat a starch based diet as McDougal eats. This routine is not difficult

  3. So basically wake up and spend 2hrs on routines that are largely holistic. Die at the same age as everyone else anyway. Have fun with that!

  4. The rubbing stuff on your body while wearing speedos in a hotel room with another dude is something you can only do as a really old guy from a country like Russia without it seeming gay. Thus I guarantee that's where Maxwell got it from.

  5. I really liked this interview, and I totally get the why of all these exercises. Ancient knowledge we need to learn and practice.

  6. did anyone else notice around the 20 minute mark he said that it's important to breathe through the nose and not the mouth. then in the very next sentence he said mouth breathing was good for oral hygiene? he obviously just mixed it up, but which one is it?

  7. awesome content! Thank you very much for all these useful info. After paying attention with some pen and paper I will incorporate them in my morning routine starting tomorrow. be blessed

  8. This Informations are GOLD, it took him decades to collect this from different very wise guys over the world. You don't how lucky we can be to have this instantly on our screen for free. Thank you so much!

  9. Seems a bit of a narcissist type. always interrupting and blasting in before the other guy finishes. like Burns and Smithers in underwear.

  10. I lost total respect for him at the point where you said he walked away frrom his wife and children. What kind of man walks away from his commitments? Anyone can answer that.

  11. This man is a genius hands down!
    After listening to him on the Joe Rogan Podcast my view on training totally changed, and I pretty much follow his philosophy on training.

  12. Watch the Full Episode of Steve Maxwell on London Real for FREE only at

  13. Obviously the last exercise without trunks wasn't filmed and Brian is a little 'sore'. Brian and Steve aren't seeing each other anymore and Brians decided not to press charges.

  14. Dickhead, whats the Gracie family got to do with UFC ? Moron, many people have trained with them, and its has nothing to do with UFC corp, you do understand its ??

  15. Walked away from his wife and kids…. what a stand up guy ;). I'm sure it eats him on the inside regularly.

  16. he don't look any better than any other 65 year-old, and actually looks older than a lot. Reminds me of Wim Hof, he's convinced himself that his way is the only way and is the best way. He's a good marketer

  17. You guys are looking awesome for your age! Never stared at onr screen for so long greetings from italy :DD

  18. How can I watch a part 2 episode without acquiring a 2k usd membership? It says for free here but seems like it's not

  19. Steve is a great teacher,i love his mentality and the fact that he is searching everything not only training.

  20. I wonder if these two dudes also subscribe to the Chinese diet of bear tooth, tiger claw, rhino horn, shark fin and every other endangered animal to improve their manhood.

  21. Yes Steve is a bit eccentric with this video. But, they asked him what he does and he told them. Steve Maxwell is my favorite trainer in the world. I have so much respect for him. He does not bullshit you. He’s direct and to the point. His training tips have really helped me.

  22. Brian Rose doesn't know when to speak and when to shut up. Jumps in and interrupts the guest at the worst possible moments.

  23. Nice! look at those ears. I'd have to laugh at some young punk picking a fight with Steve!

  24. Just watching them both do the eye exercises had me in stitches. Then they did the tongue exercises. THEN they started masturbating their wrinkly old necks I almost died. The fact that they both look alike adds an extra weirdness to the whole bizzarro workout.
    Most decent hotels have gyms anyway, added to the fact that the maid could walk in on you at any time and just freak out..

  25. Im a medical practitioner, I have to say that I absolutely loved this video! Actually, all of his techniques are the best natural health maintenance anyone could do for longevity. Oil pulling, face yoga, the deep breathing ,the dry bushing with cold shower is an excellent source for hydrotherapy. Each of his routines have immense health benefits that most don’t have a clue.
    I’ve study western medicine as well as holistic and I have to say that this Gentleman is ASTOUNDING!

    If you don’t like this wealth of information , you have to be a CUNT!

  26. Steve is the man lol he gets very deep and thoughtful but can still make a dick joke. I respect that a lot. I'm definitely skeptical of some of the eastern traditions that he's a fan of but I'm more skeptical of people that want to flat out say these things became tradition for no reason. I think we should keep traditional ideas like these around, we should definitely continue to test things for evidence and use science to inform our choices, but it would seem foolish to dismiss these techniques just because the science on them isn't out yet.

  27. I love Steve. Dude is legit. His training ideas are solid. He does have ideas outside of training I’m not in tune with but, I’m here for his training advice.

  28. I feel the same way my age is a number as well. I have the strength flexibility and endurance of a 20 years old gal that is a great shape, of course!. I do the same thing that he does ( I'm younger than him) haha. Not excuses fit your mind as well.

  29. JACK Lalane WAS fit also………….at 65 you have spent 40 years, 50hr work weeks…………. im not buying the need to live to be 150.

  30. Wow, that was great!
    Precious routines, info that are extremely good and we got it in less than an hour.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.
    The gentlemen are looking great and very fit.
