build your beach body

What’s your reason for wanting to get into the shape of your life? For me, it was wanting to prove that the advice we put in every issue of MF really does work. For this month’s cover star Zac Efron, it was being cast in the movie revamp of an iconic TV show where most of his screen time would be spent standing next to man mountain Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wearing nothing but a pair of red trunks and a whistle. And it worked. Efron’s transformation from High School Musical choirboy to Baywatch beefcake is nothing short of remarkable (and you can try his workout plan on p91). What’s more impressive is that he had some well-publicised problems that embracing a fitter and healthier life helped him overcome. In short,…

If the only blue sky you ever see is through the window of your office or car, you need to put on your trainers and get off the beaten track. Taking your training outside will help beat gym boredom, reinvigorate your gains and improve your mental health and wellbeing, according to an analysis of 11 trials involving more than 800 people which was published in the journal Environmental Science And Technology. It found that subjects who exercised in the great outdoors reported an improved sense of wellbeing compared with training inside, as well as an increase in energy levels, greater enjoyment and satisfaction from their workout, and a heightened likelihood of repeating the activity soon.…

shake up your smoothie

1 SKIMMED MILK If fat loss is your primary fitness focus, blending your protein powder with water instead of milk will keep the calorie count lower and reduce your intake of both sugar and fats. But if you want to increase both muscular size and strength, then add some milk to the mixer. Research shows that taking protein with carbs during the post-workout window hastens muscle recovery thanks to a faster replenishment of glycogen stores. 2 A MEDIUM BANANA Adding a banana to your blender when making a post-workout shake can do wonders for your physique because they’re an excellent source of vitamin B6, which plays a central role in the metabolism of the fats, carbs and protein you eat. A medium banana contains more than one-third of your daily recommended intake of…

is fresh fruit always better than juice?

Concentrated juice is little more than a type of sugary water and it’s best to eat oranges in their natural form, right? Yes, but there’s a but: while OJ is high in sugar and best avoided if you’re trying to get lean, research shows that drinking it gets you more of two key compounds found in oranges - vitamin C and cancer-fighting carotenoids. The research, published in the Journal Of Agricultural And Food Chemistry, found that while pasteurising did lower levels of vitamin C and carotenoids in juice, it increased the bioaccessibility of both compared with eating oranges, meaning your body is better able to use the compounds. So the occasional glass can in fact be good for your health.…
