BEHIND THE SCENES WITH THE EXPERTS, ADVISORS, AND READERS WHO BRING MEN’S HEALTH TO LIFE. Learning to live in the present. @MichaelCzarnomski Started watching my diet and working out 2 years or so ago so when I went around the sun for the 50th time I was and am in the best shape in my life!! 65 to 70 pounds gone and adding more muscle every day and never ever miss an issue of Men’s Health magazine!!! @patrick.powell.921 The need for approval fell away. I earned this body, this mind, and this life. It took me 50 years to realize that I can’t fix everything and that sometimes letting go is the best choice to be healthy. #50 @timothy_rios Actually being able to imagine retirement as a real, attainable goal and not just some far-off notion. Hoping…

—@rivermaskew OPTIMISM. HARD WORK. An honest sweat. Kumail Nanjiani’s biceps. Lottery winners. The forever-young 50-somethings on pages 86 through 95. A really good joke. Weddings and graduations. A day without meetings. People. All kinds of people. People who are really, really good at something. People who believe in something, and stand for something, and endure trollery and harassment and bad-faith BS to make themselves heard. People who sometimes wake up feeling that life is just impossible, and they get out of bed anyway. Life has felt sort of impossible for me lately. I broke my collarbone skiing a few weeks ago and underwent pretty extensive surgery to fix it, and while I’d heard that collarbone fractures were painful, I wasn’t ready for this level of hurt. Aleve and Advil and Tylenol don’t…

ask men’s health

Q. Coffee always makes me work out harder, but I know it dehydrates me, too. So what do I do? —ALAN, Kansas City, MO A. It’s less about dehydration and more about timing. Studies show that you’d have to slam down about four cups of coffee quickly to put you at risk of dehydration. Even if you did that, exercise counter-acts the diuretic effect of coffee by increasing your adrenaline, which in turn reduces the need to pee. All this said, caffeine is a stimulant with a long(ish) half-life, and if you’re working out in the late afternoon or later, you’re going to disrupt your sleep. If you go to bed around 10:00 P.M., drink your last cup before noon. —ERIC HELMS, PH.D., C.S.C.S., PNBA PROFESSIONALLY QUALIFIED BODYBUILDER…
