editor’s letter

#MendTheGap Back in August, I appeared in a BBC Horizon documentary called Stopping Male Suicide. This stirring programme took in a thought-provoking range of case studies, including a man who had attempted to take his own life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge and a campaigner who had lost his teenage son to suicide. My part, for what it was worth, constituted an attempt to provide context to the disquieting statistics revealed in our survey on male mental health in last year’s #MendTheGap issue. As anyone familiar with the work Men’s Health has done in this area will know well, suicide remains the biggest killer of men under 50. Or, as presenter Dr Xand van Tulleken succinctly put it, “The most likely thing to kill me is me.” Stopping Male Suicide…

THE BIG QUESTION Q WHAT’S WORSE FOR MY WAISTLINE: HIGH-ABV CRAFT ALES OR MORE SESSION BEERS? CONOR, NEWCASTLE “There are two sources of calories in beer: carbs and alcohol,” says nutritionist Alan Flanagan. “This is crucial: not many people realise that alcohol is a macro, too, with around 7kcal per gram.” What’s more, brews with a high ABV (alcohol by volume) generally pack more carbs in the form of sugars that have been left over after fermentation. So, let’s do the maths. A pint of 6.5% ABV beer – a fruity, aromatic, American-style IPA, say – will set you back around 3.5 units of alcohol. To equal this number when quaffing an easy-going 4% bitter, you would need to put away about a pint and a half. In the first instance, you’re downing around…

cash in on extra muscle growth

01 BULK BUYING 02 PERCENTAGE GROWTH With classes, gym memberships, shakes and supplements to fork out for, fitness can be a costly endeavour. But if packing on muscle is your goal, new science suggests that there’s a sizeable benefit to getting your wallet out. Research published in Personality and Individual Differences found that when men were asked to hold a wad of £20 notes, as opposed to plain paper, their levels of muscle-building testosterone skyrocketed. Although the researchers linked this hormonal response to riskier decision-making – which is why you should stick to plastic when cruising the supermarket aisles during a weight-loss regimen – a natural testosterone spike is also the perfect muscle-building support. Testosterone plays a vital role in the release of human growth hormone and muscle protein synthesis, the process by…

fix the sting of back pain in minutes

03 OPEN FOR BUSINESS It’s hardly news that sitting for too much of your life is bad for your long-term health, yet few people are aware that a largely sedentary existence can cause far more immediate problems. Take the painful, rounded back that’s been keeping you off work, or the weak glutes that have seen your deadlifts plateau. But this dynamic exercise, which centres on mobilising creaky joints, will help you fix the damage from the comfort of your living room. “The Scorpion is excellent for stretching out your whole body,” says Kemo Marriott, founder of the Brotherhood Training Club. “You’ll extend your shoulders, spine and hips, which is the perfect antidote to sitting down all day.” Plus, the control needed to execute the move will build total-body strength, while the focus…
