Lift ‘Super Slow’ And Eat Low-Carb To Get A ‘Body By Science’

Filed under: Health — @ March 27, 2009

Dr. Doug McGuff recommends “super slow” weight lifting for muscle growth

One of the emerging exercise trends in recent years, especially within low-carb circles, has been the idea of training your body slowly to fully exhaust and rapidly fatigue the muscles. We’ve heard this concept quite prominently from people like Fred Hahn previously, but now it seems more and more people are getting on the “slow burn” bandwagon. Today’s podcast interview guest is yet another member of this growing community.

In Episode 239 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from fitness expert Dr. Doug McGuff who wrote an outstanding new book entitled Body by Science: A Research Based Program to Get the Results You Want in 12 Minutes a Week. Like Hahn, Dr. McGuff understands the integral connection between diet and exercise for weight and health management as well as body sculpting. As he puts it, eating a low-carb diet turns off the faucet of glucose but “super slow” exercise pulls the plug out of the drain. Hear him discuss why hours of exercise a week is completely unnecessary biologically and how you can indeed get all the exercise you need in jut 12 minutes a week. If you think it sounds too good to be true, then listen to what he has to say about this controversial, yet scientifically-based program he uses with his clients. ENJOY!

Next week, I’m super-excited to share two amazing stories of personal health triumph with you. On Monday, we will hear from Dr. Mary Newport who I first heard about in this news story about her husband who has been able to improve his Alzheimer’s disease by adding coconut oil and MCT oil to everything he ate. It’s one of the most incredible stories I’ve ever seen and I KNOW you’re gonna be encouraged by this podcast. Then on Thursday, I’ll have Katie Jay who recently started on her own low-carb journey after going through weight loss surgery and founding an organization called the National Association for Weight Loss Surgery (NAWLS). She authored a book about her weight struggle called Dying To Change: My Really Heavy Life Story, How Weight Loss Surgery Gave Me Hope for Living and I’m sure her newfound low-carb lifestyle will be the subject of a future book.
