What is the David Madow lifestyle? The answer to this question in today’s episode!
For those of you that are new to the show, this podcast was previously known as Slice Your Age. The podcast was recently rebranded and named The David Madow Lifestyle show.
Dr. Dave has never gone into detail about what the David Madow lifestyle actually is. On today’s show, he will explain exactly what that is and how to incorporate it into your life! This lifestyle works!
Dr. Dave does not do anything too extreme. And he does not consider himself to be the fastest runner or the best skier but regardless he never quits. He keeps doing it no matter what. For example, Dr. Dave has been running for about 35 years. He has never been a fast runner. He has entered many races and, until a recent neighborhood race, he had never won any of them.
If you want to live the David Madow lifestyle, you don’t have to run. Dr. Dave firmly believes that the best exercise is walking. Almost everybody can do it. And when you get to the point where you can walk about 4 miles at a time at a decent pace (hopefully daily). When you do this, you will notice tremendous changes in how you look and how you feel. When you start walking, it doesn’t only help your physical body but your mentality as well. You start thinking things and coming up with ideas on how to help you with your life. Dr. Dave believes walking is essentially a form a meditation.
You don’t have to be an extreme athlete or ultra runner. In fact many, but not all, extreme athletes will train like crazy for a few years while competing and then will get burned out and stop competing. You don’t have to do that to be in great shape.
Dr. Dave no longer owns a gym membership. The gym is just not for him. Instead he has a home gym. He does not lift a ton of weight. He does certain things often and that is what helps keep him in great shape. Some of Dr. Dave’s favorite exercises are:
- Push-ups – All you need is a floor. Start of small and add more as you grow stronger.
- Pull-ups – Dr. Dave loves pull-ups and does them many times per week. You can purchase a pull-up bar. And pull-ups require a lot of strength. Start off doing 1 or if that’s too difficult start by just hanging from the bar for 20-30 seconds. Dr. Dave typically does anywhere from 3-5 pull-ups each time.
- Crunches – Dr. Dave uses an incline bench to do crunches. He does approximately 15 per set.
- Shoulder presses – He uses a small dumbbell set to do these.
- Bicep curls
All of these things help him to live the David Madow lifestyle. He does feel the need to pay a lot of money each month for a gym membership. He feels great and his routine is not too extreme.
Dr. Dave also does not consider his diet to be too extreme. He eats anything as long as it does not come from an animal and prefers unprocessed foods. He does not eat animal products primarily because 1) he does not want to contribute to animal suffering and 2) for his health. It is part of the David Madow lifestyle. He eliminated these things from his diet and just a short time later it has made a huge difference. When Dr. Dave looks in the mirror, he questions, is this what a 60 year-old is supposed to look like? Is this what a 60 year-old is supposed to be doing? Running, skiing expert slopes, learning to ride a unicycle? YOU can be doing the same. Not only are you going to feel so good about the way you look but it’s going to help you live longer too!
The David Madow lifestyle is doing things that work that are simple. No fads, no latest and greatest! Healthy plant based whole foods such as fruits and vegetables. Fads don’t last.
We are human and sometimes things get in the way in our lives. If there is anything going on in your life that is preventing you from living the life you want to, you have to get rid of it. It is all about living healthy, happy, and making sure your relationships are good.
This is the David Madow lifestyle. It’s not rocket science or crazy information. But unfortunately most people are not doing it. If you stick with this plan and live this lifestyle, you will one day look in the mirror and say WOW! You will be amazed at the differences!
