the will of the gods

To say that this month’s MF cover star has undergone a remarkable transformation in the past few years is an understatement. And I don’t just mean physically, but professionally too. After more than 200 episodes of Hollyoaks, second place in Strictly Come Dancing and winning 2010’s Rear of the Year, Ricky Whittle packed his bags and swapped Oldham for Hollywood in an all-in, make-or-break attempt to hit the big time. He aimed for the stars, and he’s hit the moon – Shadow Moon, the lead role in American Gods, Amazon Video’s acclaimed, big-budget adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s best-selling novel. To look the part he had to pack on some serious size, and on p44 he reveals exactly how he built his A-list body so you can too. Whittle also reveals how…

off the beaten track

Running off-road doesn’t only build stronger muscles and more stable joints, it will also lower your risk of osteoporosis. Previous research has shown the mental benefits of exercising in the great outdoors, including reducing anxiety and stress, and now a study in the European Society Of Endocrinology journal reports that long-distance running strengthens your bones more effectively than other forms of endurance cardio, such as cycling and swimming. Researchers measured levels of two proteins, osteocalcin and P1NP, both of which play roles in the formation of new bone. Blood levels were far higher in runners than in other endurance athletes. What’s more, a study in the Experiential Biology journal found that activities on uneven terrain led to a 28% increase in positive knee health, and a 62% increase in better…

have more sex this summer

1 RISE FOR THE MORNING SUN Getting up and out into the morning sunshine can dramatically increase your body’s production of testosterone, according to a study from the University of California. Researchers found that exposure to bright light first thing increased levels of luteinising hormone – a pituitary gland hormone that instructs Leydig cells in the testes to produce the primary male sex hormone – by a massive 69.5%. 2 PLAY MORE TEAM SPORTS Winning team sports against an unknown opposition causes a testosterone surge, according to the University of Missouri.

boost brain power with black grapes

Most us have a preference for red or white wine – but when it comes to grapes before fermentation, you should choose the darker varieties if you want to improve your memory. This is because of their higher levels of an antioxidant compound called resveratrol, according to a rodent study by Texas A&M University. Researchers found that neurogenesis – the growth and development of neurons – doubled in subjects given resveratrol compared with a control group. The resveratrol group also had significantly improved blood flow to the brain, as well as lower levels of inflammation in the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in long-term memory and spatial awareness. Resveratrol is also found in peanuts and other dark berries. 25% If you commonly suffer from aching muscles after a weights workout,…
