letter from the editor

IN THE weeks just before the Men’s Health team started producing this issue, the world was reeling from video footage of three different acts of physical and mental violence committed against Black men in different parts of America: Ahmaud Arbery, gunned down by private citizens while jogging in southern Georgia; George Floyd, killed by a Minneapolis police officer after being pinned to the ground with a knee to his neck; and Christian Cooper, harassed, profiled, and threatened by a woman walking her dog in New York City’s Central Park. Any of these incidents alone would have been enough (or should have been enough) to spark a national conversation about the massive stress and the daily, enduring dangers of being Black in America—how to “live free in [a] black body,” as…

1. LET GO OF THE UNMANAGEABLE “Control what you can! Anxiety is often associated with an onset of thoughts directly linked to things we cannot control.” 2. COME TO YOUR SENSES “Using your senses would allow you to focus on the present moment, e.g., the smell of a scented candle, touching something soft, looking at the stars in the sky, listening to jazz or meditation music, drinking something warm.” 3. TALK TO SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF “Whether it’s a friend, a family member, a community/religious leader, or a therapist—everyone can use a therapist. Create the support you want, and be intentional about engaging with your support system.”…

LORENZO P. LEWIS STATS AGE: 32 LOCATION: Little Rock, Arkansas OCCUPATION: Founder/CEO of the Confess Project The Setback I was born in jail; my mother was incarcerated when she had me. My father was also imprisoned. I was raised by my aunt, but I still experienced the effects of childhood trauma. My father died when I was in third grade, and I remember my teacher telling me to “stop crying and be a man.” Later, I joined a gang, and when I was 17, I sought retribution for a friend who had gotten jumped at a basketball game. The police intervened before I could do anything—I was carrying a gun and was arrested. The Call to Action Detention shook me. I felt sick and hopeless and depressed, thinking about both my parents, who had been imprisoned. Luckily,…

lean into the power of kinstretch

YOU’VE NEVER STRETCHED like this. Sure, you stretch your arms to the ceiling when you get out of bed. Before a workout, you warm up by swinging your arms and touching your toes, and you cool down with calf stretches and quad pulls. None of that is what Andreo Spina, D.C., RCCSS(C), calls stretching. The sports-specialist chiropractor wants you to stand tall, squeeze your glutes and abs, and slowly rotate your arm high overhead in a wide arc while keeping your back straight. Then he wants you to flex your deltoid, the muscle that links the top of your arm to your shoulder, for ten seconds, before flexing your lat, the V-shaped muscle connecting your arm to your spine, hard, as if you were trying to make it spasm (which is…
