I met Steve Maxwell this past weekend; great guy. He and his wife DC run a fitness studio/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school in Philly called Maxercise. Although Steve has moved away from using Superslow as his exercise protocol of choice, I found out he and I share the common professional bond of highly recommending low-carbohydrate diets as the nutrition plan of choice. He is a perfect living example of a high-level athlete who performs well because (some would say in spite) of his reliance on meats and virtual exclusion of grains from his diet. I think he told me the ratio was something like 80% meat, the rest vegetable matter. Oh, and he practices Intermittent Fasting.
It’s certainly working for him. He’s 54 and a freaking powerhouse. He also happens to be a fountain of knowledge and information and a 2-time world champion Black Belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
He couldn’t convince me to give up “normal strength training” for kettlebells, tho. Still an awesome guy.
