“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.
"OMG, I'm going catabolic!”, he yelled when he realized he had forgotten his protein shaker, missed the bus and now had to wait 15 minutes before the next one arrived.

I figured this would be the best time to lay down the 411 for what I want to try and create here.I definitely want it to be an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand, easy-to-absorb and an easy-to-implement place where you can learn about all sorts of stuff. There is definitely a lot of information out there that gets easily lost, changed and manipulated the more times it is repeated. So I'm going to try and shed some light on topics that need to (in my opinion) be... Shedded on.
