editor’s letter

No one likes being pigeon-holed. No one wants to be defined by another man’s gaze. But like the actor forever destined to play the pantomime villain or the endearing goofball, it’s an inevitability of life. For most of my time at Men’s Health, we have endeavoured to present a holistic, multifaceted image of health and fitness. We have catered for a broad range of readers, from the young and gains-hungry gym rat to the middle-aged executive whose ego and appetite write cheques his body can no longer cash. We’ve gone to great lengths to prove that a salubrious lifestyle needn’t be one devoid of good food, high stakes or occasional bad behaviour. We embraced – hell, we pioneered – the conversation around male mental health. And yet, to many, we will…

boosting your heart health is a walk in the park

01 STEP CHANGE 02 NUMBER GAINS The idea of taking 10,000 steps per day gets a lot of stick. Is it essential for good health, or is it just an arbitrary goal? The truth is that it depends. If you’re working out three or four times per week, the extra steps are a bonus but far from game-changing. The problem is that many struggle to hit even moderate levels of consistent physical activity. If that’s you, giving yourself a manageable step target can be a lifesaver. Researchers in the US followed the exercise habits of a group of over-40s for a decade and found that cardiovascular disease was the leading cause of death among the participants. For those walking an average number of steps per day (about 4,000, both in the US and…

25G OF PROTEIN PER MEAL Consume less and muscle tears from exercise will persist, so gains will go to waste, according to the University of Texas. 15 MINUTES OF MEDITATION Using a meditation app for 15 minutes per day confers similar mental benefits to a day off work, says the Journal of Positive Psychology. EIGHT HOURS’ SLEEP Regularly skipping a good night’s sleep can double your mortality risk from all causes, according to a study by University College London.

slide into beast mode

03 MIGHT CRAWLER Unlike many members of the Hollywood elite, Chris Hemsworth isn’t into training fads. On Instagram, you’ll see him pushing himself to the limit, armed with just dumbbells – and the results speak for themselves. The key is picking the right movement. His dumbbell beast crawl may look funny – it earned a parody from Jack Black – but the benefits are no laughing matter. “It’s a complex move but not a heavy load, so you can maintain a higher heart rate for longer,” says Andrew Tracey, PT and MH’s fitness editor. “You’ll be burning more calories than a heavy lifting move like a bench press.” In addition to a solid calorie burn, it hits the rotational muscles in your core as you fight to stabilise yourself while moving the weights…
