Howey is a fitness freak who has been challenging every 40+ individual with his ripped body and intense workout regime at the Equinox gym. Unlike others, his workout does not span out for like 40 minutes. Instead, he takes 40 minutes to warm up and then works out for around 2 to 3 hours. He trains using weight plates and does exercises like squat presses and squat to shoulder presses.
When it comes to his diet, he believes in consistency and also practices the mantra ‘Boring is Better’. He accepts that abs are built in the kitchen and it is more of what we eat than how much we work out that actually affects our body. Steve eats lots of veggies including broccoli and tries to maintain a consistent diet plan. He also uses the Blood Type Diet app which assists him in deciding which food products are good for him and which are bad.
