editor’s letter

Super-subs – players who come off the bench to turn a match on its head – are commonplace in the world of sport. But while I’d love to say my own introduction to Men’s Fitness led to an instant impact, unfortunately the change came too late in injury time (press week) for any real difference to be made on this issue. However, clumsy analogies aside, I am incredibly excited to be taking the magazine forward. Credit for this one, though, should go to Christina Neal, who put together these pages, all of which are designed to help you lead the healthiest, happiest life you can. From the depression discussion on page 28 – featuring the frank admissions of two men who have had their own struggles with mental health – to…

what matters, now

Wake up, work out When it comes to working out, it pays to be a morning person, according to a new study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The findings revealed that an early session such as a quick run or short bike ride boosted cognitive performance throughout the day. The study, led by the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute and The University of Western Australia, showed that participants who were active first thing performed better in tests that included tasks like decision-making, attention span, visual learning, organising and planning, compared to their sedentary peers. Did you know? Sleep is a painkiller. In a recent survey conducted by Sealy, headache sufferers reported a 40 per cent improvement after a restful night, while 23 per cent noticed a reduction in anxiety levels.…

Brain teaser There are plenty of reasons to workout, that have nothing to do with getting bigger, or even stronger. These range from boosting your mood, to keeping your heart healthy - and scientists are now saying that hitting the gym regularly can help to keep your mind sharp. Whether you want to complete a crossword – first time for everything – or nail a presentation at work, your goals can be all the more achievable if you’ve exercised beforehand. A study by the University of Maryland showed that just one workout increased activation in the brain circuits associated with memory, including the hippocampus, which deteriorates with age. In the study, participants performed a memory test after 30 minutes of moderate cardio, and on a separate day after a rest period;…

5 ways to boost your motivation

“It’s actually productive to factor time in for recuperation” 1 Figure out your reasons why Ask yourself why exactly you want to stay fit, get strong, eat better, or be healthier. Ask ‘why’.

One reason could be a desire to keep up with your kids, in which case you know you’re doing a triathlon to be an energetic dad – and there’s your motivation for training, for the times you want to do anything but. 2 Share your workouts It’s all too easy to skip a session when you’re the only person who knows about it. Sharing goals with pals or on social media can help you stay on track when enthusiasm wanes. Research conducted by…

27 is the turning point for millennials’ health – in the US, at least. Researchers from the Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) Health Index analysed data from health insurance claims for 55 million millennials, who were ages 21 to 36. Based on the insurer’s optimal health index of 100, the study found that the average score for millennials was about 95, and that overall health begins to decline at the age of 27 – much earlier than expected. Obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes are all factors that contributed to the decline. Speaking to Healthline, Dr. Aaron J. Friedberg, an assistant professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University, said the findings showed an ominous trend: “I think this report reflects an approaching reality that due to increased illness,…
