09 Apr The Tail Tuck

If you're on my emailing list, you would've been receiving a few tips from the core topic I’ve been talking about recently. If not, I ain’t a hater; ‘cause I'm still keen on mapping out a bigger and better plan of attack when trying to train your core, posture, and keeping those annoying tight areas that constantly reawaken themselves, away (tight hip flexors, anyone?). So let’s get started.

02 Apr The Meal Fallacy. Part II

“Survival required the capacity to withstand prolonged periods of deprivation in order to hunt, or escape if preyed upon.” – George F. Cahill and Oliver E. Owen.

I bet you all lost a lot of sleep this week counting down for part two. I certainly left you all on a cliff-hanger. And for that, I apologise. So we covered the thermic effect of food (TEF) and how it relates to each food we consume (remember, around 9-10%) last week. We also covered that when it comes to “stoking” your metabolism, it really is a bunch of baloney. If you did happen to missed part one (I’m actually slightly offended), hit this linkage righttt here --> http://haydenperno.com/2014/03/26/the-meal-fallacy-part-i/ to get yourself up to speed. Okay, now that we’re all on the same page, clear your mind and let's dive back into the fallacy of the meal conundrum.

26 Mar The Meal Fallacy. Part I

Consuming meals in a habitual style where you eat every 2-3 hours or so, is a popular talked-about and promoted method for losing pounds, getting your shred on, and even adding and maintaining musclez. But, is there any actual merit to it? Or is it just another one of those things people do in a blind sheep sorta way?

19 Mar Exercise Ain’t The Devil

Whilst there are advocates and methods of pushing people to exhaustion and breaking them down so much so that they can’t even brush their teeth for the next 6 days, it really doesn’t have to be this way. Not only that it doesn’t have to be this way, it’s also most likely pretty damn unnecessary for their goals.

12 Mar Opportunity

It KILLS me when I ask people about their day, week or weekend and their response is “it was meh.” That might sound a little harsh, but it just makes me think “what more do you want?”. You’re not enjoying your weekends? Well then what are you wasting them for?

05 Mar The Wonderful World of Creatine

Creatine monohydrate (CM) is one of those supplements that gets talked up and about a lot. We’ve got a third of the population out there that swear by it, another third that don’t agree with it, and the other 33.3 or so percent completely unaware that it even exists. But is it something that you should and could consider adding into your diet despite it being something that most people think is aimed at male bodybuilders chasing the pump? Keep reading to fill your brain up with some information from the wonderful world of supplements.

26 Feb G.I. BALONEY

It makes me sad that people restrict themselves from eating tasty foodz like potatoes and white rice because of the high and low GI (glycemic index - a measurement for foods and their impact on our blood sugar) rating these foods get. What really is ridiculous is that people spin this GI/GL (glycemic load – similar to GI, except it takes into consideration the serving size) rating stuff so much that more and more people buy into it and start restricting all types of proper whole food, like the above, just because of it being labelled as ‘low’ or ‘high’. What is also funny to note is that the difference between these two extremes is a mere 15 points.

19 Feb Air

“If breathing patterns are off, it can set off a cascade of events that drive injury and dysfunction.” – Mike Robertson.

I talked a little bit about breathing in Game Changers but figured it’s probably best to break it down a little bit further. You see, everything is impacted on your breathing - your posture, mobility, alignment, brain function, stress levels and even mood can all be altered with upset breathing patterns. And whilst all of this mightn't seem possible at first, let’s break it down so you can see how much is and can be involved.
