INSIGHT FROM OUR COWORKERS A.C. [4:01 P.M.] The meathead look is out. But beyond that, I don’t really think about specific muscles on men that often. Randomly, I do like a good calf muscle. A.B. [4:03 P.M.] I think arms matter … like, muscular but also not like arms-that-could-double-as-thighs. L.G. [4:03 P.M.] You can’t go wrong with a nice butt! But yeah, the meathead thing hasn’t been that attractive since, like, the Jersey Shore days. K.C. [4:04 P.M.] ABS. Still like abs. M.T. [4:05 P.M.] Arms, but I want a guy to look like he has muscles from doing stuff, not just lifting stuff. Think it is a red flag when a guy is too jacked—like, doesn’t he have other hobbies? Ki.C. [4:05 P.M.] ^^ Yes, also looks a little vain. A.B. [4:15 P.M.] I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with @L.G. on…

recover like a pro

WITH MH ADVISOR BILL HARTMAN, P.T., C.S.C.S. The no-nonsense trainer specializes in recovery and bouncing back from injury. The question he gets asked all the time: Q. How hard should I be foamrolling? It should hurt, right? A. First off, you don’t need to use a foam roller. It is a choice. For some, it may help with mobility or temporary pain relief, as the pressure enacts changes within tissues and the nervous system. (For more on some of these tissues, called fascia, turn to page 30.) But you should never use a foam roller for a bone issue. Pain here could just mean pain, or you could be irritating a fracture and causing more problems. When foam rollers are used correctly, though, you will experience mild discomfort. Still, there should be no…

“The first issue, from Rodale Press in 1986, had a man and baby on the cover. I’ve seldom seen articles relating to fatherhood since.” Check out page 70!—Editor “I note the large number of six-pack abs and ripped men on your cover. I prefer men who look like me (one-pack).” Fair enough, but for inspiration, turn the page for a guy maybe more like you. “As a veteran of the Marine Corps, I am painfully aware of how many of my fellow vets face suicidal thoughts. Have you ever offered tips on mental health?” We’ve got a whole section on getting help on page 73. “Keep up your good work.” Will do.

belly off!: a techie’s body reboot

MATT CLEMENTE: STATS AGE: 40 LOCATION: Graham, North Carolina OCCUPATION: Investor (former executive VP at Dell) BEFORE WEIGHT: 417 AFTER WEIGHT: 207 The Setback My legs started to buckle, and my joints started to creak. I was sleeping just two to three hours at night. My blood pressure was going through the roof, and my physical activity was limited to trips to and from my office upstairs. The littlest bit of activity, like bringing the garbage out to the curb or working in the yard, made me totally exhausted. It was a miserable way to live. The Wake-up Call I had a kidney stone, and it was the most painful and excruciating experience in my life. Because I was so big, I couldn’t get rid of it via the traditional route. I had to have invasive surgery. After that,…
