editor’s letter

The issue you are holding concerns, among other things, age. I confess that this thought has only just occurred to me as I sat down to write, but that in itself is not altogether unsurprising. Age is something we’ve been discussing with increasing regularity in the Men’s Health office, and not just because we’ve all become a bunch of grizzled old duffers. Far from it: admittedly, a couple of us may be racking up excess miles on the clock, but we had already left school by the time our newest recruit was even born. The fact is our readership is broader in span than it has ever been. When we recently ran a feature called Fit At Any Age, the majority of letters I subsequently received were from disgruntled sexagenarians who…

THE BIG QUESTION Q I’M CARRYING A LITTLE MORE WEIGHT THAN I USED TO. SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT DIABETES? JOHN, GOSPORT Well, that depends on what you mean by “a little” – but you’re right to be thinking about it. The latest statistics indicate that we are edging towards a diabetes epidemic. Despite this, it seems that few grasp the severity of the condition. Diabetes causes glucose to build up in your blood, damaging your eyes, kidneys, sex life and, eventually, your heart. A slight increase in weight is no cause for panic, but carrying excess fat around your middle – along with poor sleep and high stress levels – will increase your risk. Sound like you? Get checked for pre-diabetes: elevated blood sugar levels that affect one in three adults in the…

TEXT A SLEEP THERAPIST Today 02:03 It’s just gone two, and I need to be up for work in five hours. Can you help me nod off? OK. First, stop checking the time: studies show that knowing how much sleep you’ve missed will make you feel more tired. Right. I’ve turned the alarm clock around. What now? Your brain needs to associate “bed” with “sleep”. Don’t spend too long lying there awake. So, you mean I should get up? Yes, for 15 minutes. Stop all that tossing and turning and read a book in the living room. Can I watch an episode of Killing Eve? No! Avoid screens and keep the lights dim. Good luck. Today 02:58 Um, are you still awake? Yes… Count down from 900 in sevens: dull tasks like this often work. And get off your phone! Alison Gardiner sleepstation.org.uk AG ANCIENT…

your passport to laid-back longevity

As you struggle to meet work deadlines and family commitments, finding time to get the old gang back together can all too easily slip down your priorities list. Gratifyingly, however, US scientists have found that it’s precisely what you need. Spending time away with your friends – golfing in the Algarve, say, or coasteering in Jersey (see page 103) – can positively impact on your health as much as getting enough sleep and exercise. What’s more, taking regular breaks with your mates can increase your life expectancy. How much more of an excuse do you need? According to the Harvard Medical School, fostering social connections helps to dial down harmful levels of stress, which can cause problems for your immune system, coronary arteries, gut function and insulin regulation. And while talking…

a sure-fire belly burner

Few moves induce nausea quite like the burpee. But love ’em or hate ’em, there’s no disputing that burpees offer an effective full-body burn in no time flat. However, elite trainer Jay T Maryniak (@jtm_fit) believes that there is room for improvement. His invention incorporates a kettlebell snatch and a reverse lunge on top of the burpee – which is good news for the abs below your soon-to-be-stripped belly fat. When you hold weight overhead, especially on one side of the body, your core fires on all cylinders to keep you upright throughout the rep. After hitting your chest and triceps with the burpee, you’ll target your posterior chain with the lunge. That’s a lot of muscle fibres in one rep, spiking your heart rate and maximising calorie burn, even after you…
