editor’s letter

There are doubtless many who, upon meeting me in the flesh, would confess to feeling underwhelmed. Just as one might assume the editor in chief of Vogue Paris to be the living embodiment of chic, it’s understandable that people would expect the bloke in the top seat at Men’s Health to be a deadlifting, CrossFitting, protein-guzzling swoledier. Alas, dear reader, I am not that man. This is not something about which I am especially defensive. Personally, I tend to find over-zealous gym bros limited in their chat, while food fascists are tedious at best. Nor do I apologise for skating a fine line between salubriousness and indulgence as part of my debit-and-credit approach to well-being. I train, in some form, more or less every day. I make a point of eating…

chisel your own set of icepack abs

01 ICED T 02 COOL REWARDS Scroll through the Instagram feeds of the sporting elite and you’ll notice ice baths and cryotherapy chambers have become as ubiquitous as the rippling torsos they contain. However, the link isn’t what you might think. Sure, withstanding -150°C degrees in pants may boost mental fortitude, but there’s little hard evidence to suggest it speeds up recovery. Despite the marketing spiel, the Journal of Applied Physiology found whole body cryotherapy was less effective than a placebo at curbing muscle pain in marathon runners. But, far from skating on thin ice, researchers have now identified a solid benefit to post-workout chills. When sports scientists at Swansea University subjected athletes to extremely low temperatures after an explosive sprint session, they recorded a testosterone spike in the subjects’ saliva lasting 24…

twist the screw on muscle gain

03 JOIN THE RESISTANCE When you’re squeezing in a gym session between meetings, making a beeline from your desk to the bench press is the go-to tactic. The inconvenient truth, though, is that skipping a warm-up is sabotaging your workout. In your quest for total-body muscle, one move can make all the difference, so set aside five minutes and grab a resistance band. “During the windmill and press, your shoulder stabilises, your hips hinge and your spine rotates, priming you for heavy kettlebell swings, overhead pressing or deadlifts,” explains Third Space PT Lee Ryan. You’ll lift heavier for extra sets and reps, accelerating your progress. And that’s before we get to the impact on your core. This move builds abs as effectively as a plank, but it’s far less boring. “The band activates your…

the health snob’s guide to broccoli

04 BROC PARTY 05 RUB OF THE GREENS 01 GREEN GOBBLIN’ Some clichés ring true. Others do not. It’s not news that broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse. But it’s fake news that it amounts to nothing more than a tasteless side for your post-training Tupperware. By expanding your repertoire of brassica and updating your cooking methods, Michael Thompson, the head chef of Cub (lyancub.com), proves that you can make the nutritious truly delicious. It’s time you switched to green energy. A CALABRESE You probably know this variety as plain old “broccoli” and there’s a good reason you see calabrese in everyone’s trolley. Not only is it full of vitamins and fibre, but research says the sulforaphane fires up your brown fat tissue to spike your metabolism. B LONG STEM Calabrese’s skinny sidekick has a similar nutritional make-up…
