your secrets to a killer guys’ trip

Behind the Issue ASK AN MH ADVISOR WHAT’S IN YOUR (ADVENTURE) DOPP KIT? Jedidiah Ballard, D.O., is a former Army Ranger, an ER doctor, an osteopathic authority, and the MH Advisory Board member who best knows how to prepare for the worst when braving the great outdoors. HIKING AND CAMPING are wonderful outdoor activities with the potential to bring peace, joy, and fond memories. But they also have the potential for pain. Falls definitely present the biggest risk for severe injury once you’ve made it outdoors. The terrain you’re hiking affects that risk, but you should always carry a few trauma items with you, just in case. (This advice applies to the stories on pages 41 and, quite possibly, 72.) How About Those Guns on Mackie? Want arms like the guy on our cover? Fitness director…

the crossfit king

EVERY SUMMER, top CrossFitters compete in “the Games,” a five-day, 14-event CrossFit challenge that’s like the decathlon, American Ninja Warrior, and World’s Strongest Man mashed into one ab-tastic sweatfest. Last year, the final event was called Aeneas because… well, Aeneas was a war hero, and presumably ripped. It involved five pegboard climbs, requiring you to hold a dowel in each hand and jab your way up an eight-foot board; 40 thrusters, front squats to overhead presses with an 85-pound barbell; and three 33-foot loaded yoke carries, in which you shoulder a crossbar attached to a base. Weight is added for each subsequent carry, starting at 425 pounds and going to 665 pounds. The event separates the very fit from the impossibly fit. It also separates the impossibly fit from Mathew Fraser. Fraser…

“welcome to crossfit. i’m mat.”

THE SNATCH WHAT IS IT? The most technically demanding move in CrossFit (and Olympic weightlifting), the snatch has you lifting a loaded barbell from the ground to overhead, all in one motion. FRASER’S WISDOM: “Keep your arms absolutely straight and locked out through the first part of the lift so all the power from your hips will translate upward.” ★ FRASER’S BEST: 315-pound snatch. THE MUSCLE-UP WHAT IS IT? An advanced movement, the muscle-up requires that you start hanging from a bar or rings then pull your entire torso above it, locking your arms out at the top. FRASER’S WISDOM: “Do not try ring muscle-ups until you are very good at pullups, strict pullups. Learn pullups first, then muscle-ups will come.” ★ FRASER’S BEST: Can do 30 muscle-ups in 2:00.16. CARDIO ROW WHAT IS IT? The cardio row machine…
