44:50 – How To Work With Andre

Here are additional notes Andre has provided:

  • During sleep the bulk of your naturally occurring human growth hormone (HGH) is released. This aids in muscle repair, which also occurs primarily while you sleep.
  • Sleep allows your brain to recover and organize and make sense of your day/life. 7-8 hours is normal in adults, 9-10 in teens, 10+ in younger folk. Add time for activity.
  • Napping is helpful, especially for cognitive function, alertness and skill absorption
  • One night of inadequate sleep won’t derail your performance, but several nights will.
  • With a complete lack of sleep, most people would die in 10 days or less.

With inadequate sleep, re: not enough or disturbed through multiple interruptions, loud ambient noises, sleep apnea or your beautiful new baby the following slowly results:

  • Less HGH than maximum is produced, resulting in incomplete muscle repair and testosterone reduction, meaning less muscle and more fat on your frame.
  • Mood, judgment and coordination are all negatively impacted.
  • Time to fatigue is decreased (you get tired more quickly).
  • Perceived exertion is increased (things feel harder than your physiology dictates).
  • Heat management is impacted.
  • The stress hormone cortisol level increases (this is bad).
  • Reduction in insulin sensitivity (re: increase in insulin resistance – also bad).
  • Inflammation in your body increases, which has a long-term correlation with cancer.
  • Increased appetite and associated weight gain.
  • Immune system is compromised; you become sick easier.
  • Long term, linked with diabetes, obesity, heart disease, falling asleep at the wheel, and in general, dying before you should.

Brenton and Mitch were great to work with at the clinic, Good to get video analysis to work on straight away, practice some new drills and go home knowing what you need to work on.
