Dennis Hogan is one of our favourite athletes here at Paleo Hero HQ because he's not only a champion at the top of his game, he's an all-round nice guy! Let's dive in to what makes him such a success. Over to you Dennis.
o Tell us about you and what you do?
I am a professional boxer with a record of 28 wins, 3 loses and 1 draw. My next fight is against Tim Tszyu on March 31 at the Newcastle Convention Centre.
o Do you have a morning ritual or habit? What does that look like?
My morning ritual is gratitude, I wake up and before getting out of bed I sit up and think about all the people, things and events I’m grateful for in my life and when I’m finished that I see myself achieving my dreams and goals and that sets up perfectly for the day.
o What’s your daily routine look like when it comes to food and fitness?
My typical training day includes - as I wake up straight away I do gratitude and visualisation. I then go and do strength and conditioning either at Function Well with coach Christopher Muckert or hills sprints or hill runs, after I would have a protein shake and banana. Then I’d have a meal from Wilde Kitchen that’s chicken, wild rice and veg with a green tea.
In between sessions I would either see my Chiro/Physio/Naturopath/cryo freeze or remedial massage ect. I usually get 30-60 mins relax time to either meditate, read or nap before my big boxing session. I have a Paleo Hero Primal Slice and some ucan carb powder drink with vital Greens and vitamins.
In training we do about 3 hours which include heavy bag/sparring/padwork/plios/
For dinner I’d have Nourish Meals prepared meal eggs/chicken, sweet potato and veg. Here I would usually have an hour with my family and daughters before they would go to bed. I get emails done and promotion work for ticket selling and all that kind of stuff.
My last meal I have another Paleo Hero Primal Slice and 2-3 slices of Paleo Hero Bread. I would usually then go for a 30-50 minute walk. When I get home I do the Wimm Hoff breathing method and then meditate for a little while then off to bed. Gratitude and visualisation before I nod off. My days get scattered a bit but that’s a typical enough day.
