INSIGHT FROM OUR COWORKERSA.C. [4:01 P.M.]The meathead look is out. But beyond that, I don’t really think about specific muscles on men that often. Randomly, I do like a good calf muscle.A.B. [4:03 P.M.]I think arms matter … like, muscular but also not like arms-that-could-double-as-thighs.L.G. [4:03 P.M.]You can’t go wrong with a nice butt! But yeah, the meathead thing hasn’t been that attractive since, like, the Jersey Shore days.K.C. [4:04 P.M.]ABS. Still like abs.M.T.

“The first issue, from Rodale Press in 1986, had a man and baby on the cover. I’ve seldom seen articles relating to fatherhood since.”Check out page 70!—Editor“I note the large number of six-pack abs and ripped men on your cover. I prefer men who look like me (one-pack).”Fair enough, but for inspiration, turn the page for a guy maybe more like you.“As a veteran of the Marine Corps, I am painfully aware of how many of my fellow vets face suicidal thoughts. Have you ever offered tips on mental health?”We’ve got a whole section on getting help on page 73.“Keep up your good work.”Will do.Don Nichols/Getty Images (beer cans), Nick S/Getty Images (dog tag), Kyle Hilton (Hartman illustration)…
