it’s action stations for summer

Have you ever watched an action movie where the main character is running across the rooftop of a skyscraper before launching into the air, as if hurtling toward the concrete below wasn’t a likely outcome, before landing safely on top of the building across the street (and doing a somersault on dismount)? Is it CGI? No.It’s probably a professional stuntman, and here at MMH, we were fortunate enough to have Bobby Holland Hanton share with readers exactly what it takes to be a real-life action hero. There’s a good chance you’ve seen him before, because he’s been the stunt double to the leading men in nearly every modern-day action movie you can think of. Think Bond, Batman, Game of Thrones, and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok to name just a…

how to eat yourself into shape for summer

PROTEIN If your goal is to drop fat while maintaining muscle, then it is crucial that you hit your daily protein target — and then some! Protein is a macronutrient that cannot be stored by the body in its normal state, so it should be eaten regularly throughout the day. For the average male, the recommended daily amount of protein is around 0.84g per kilo of body weight and more for those who have a labour-intensive job or are active throughout the day.Protein helps to build muscle and assists in preventing muscle breakdown and subsequent loss and also helps to regulate blood sugar, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. In other words, when trying to get shredded for summer, including this macronutrient in every meal is your…

DOES YOUR PERSONALITY DERAIL YOUR DIET? A new CSIRO report has analysed the five main diet-related personality types of more than 90,000 Australian adults to see why so many people find it hard to maintain a healthy diet and to identify major stumbling blocks for each personality type.The most common personality types are Thinkers (37 per cent), who overanalyse their progress and have unrealistic expectations, and Cravers (26 per cent), who find it hard to resist temptation. Then come Socialisers (17 per cent), Foodies (16 per cent), and Freewheelers (4 per cent).Men are more likely than women to be Foodies (passionate about food and have a healthier diet with a high variety of vegetables, but alcohol makes up one-third of their discretionary food and beverage intake) or…

something is not always better than nothing!

(Photo: Shutterstock.com) It is not always the case that doing something is better than doing nothing — especially when heavy weights are involved. Weight training is a skill. It is the practiced and precise execution of loaded movements to increase muscle size, strength, and tone.Simply going through the motions on a piece of equipment or with a heavy barbell will only lead to poor movement patterns, sluggish recruitment of target muscles, and possible injury. To optimise performance, maximise results and avoid injury, there are a few key training principles that you need to consider when weight training.Weight training sessions need to be structured. Have a goal. Know what the target muscle group is and its basic anatomy. Consider the action of these muscles and what it feels like to contract…

spring health hacks small changes for a big impact

Diet and exercise are the key for all-round fitness, but it’s your other daily habits and choices that can make all the difference. Fad diets and extreme workout regimes are all well and good, but they are hard to maintain in everyday life. Have you ever heard the saying ‘slow and steady wins the race’? Well, it’s true for diet and exercise too. It is the small choices that you can make as part of your everyday lifestyle that will really make the difference to your overall health and wellbeing. These are the ones that you barely even notice, so you don’t feel you are missing out. Extreme diets may help you to lose fat fast, but will you keep it off after going back to your normal lifestyle?…
