IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MATTER After a hectic few months of holiday feasting, from Christmas to Chinese New Year, are you still working hard on your new year’s resolutions to shed that extra weight? It’s been reported that around 80 percent of resolutions supposedly fail by the second week of February. So, if you’re still going strong, keep at it! If you’ve fallen off the weight loss wagon, don’t be disheartened. Maybe you’ve chosen a target that was a little too unrealistic. The solution is to break it down into something more manageable by setting S.M.A.R.T. goals; specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timely. So, that means less of “I want a six-pack in one month!” And more of, “I will cut down on sugary drinks during meals!” If you’re struggling to make it work,…

How You Can Do Full Body Workouts With Just A Pair Of Dumbbells If you could only use one piece of gym equipment for the rest of your training days, your best pick would probably be dumbbells.

what exactly is a “deload week”? — oscar

A bit tired are we? We don’t blame you. All that effort to maintain a good body can take it out of a man. And as the training sessions get longer and tougher, it might be a good time to ease your foot off the pedal. Deloading involves reducing the volume and intensity of your training to support repair and recovery. “Without proper rest, your body’s ability to produce force becomes inhibited and you’ll stop seeing results,” says strength and conditioning coach Sam Pepys. Even if your muscles feel fine, heavy lifting takes its toll on your central nervous system (CNS) responsible for multiple functions within your body. If your CNS is fried, you’ll struggle to muster energy and focus in your day-to-day life. Schedule a deload every fifth week. You may…

It’s a tempting option. And as hair loss affects 25 percent of men before hitting 30, you’re in good company deliberating the pros and cons. There’s no doubt that going under the knife can yield successful results: “Follicles transplanted from the back of your scalp to thinning areas still ‘believe’ they’re living there, so won’t be subject to balding,” explains Dr. David Fenton, a Harley Street consultant dermatologist. However, it’ll hit you where it hurts: your wallet. It’s worth looking into cheaper options first. Lotions can prevent further hair loss, but not all encourage regrowth. Or, you could try systemic hormone tablets which have proven effective for returfing patchy areas. “They block the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, the hormone responsible for baldness,” says Dr. Fenton. Yet the results are variable. Another option…

I ASKED MY NEIGHBOUR TO LOOK AFTER MY PET WHILE I’M AWAY, BUT IT IS NOW MISSING. CAN I HOLD THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR FINDING MY PET? According to the Animals and Birds Act, an “owner” of an animal is any individual who had possession, custody or control of the animal either permanently or temporarily. Moreover, every owner of an animal must take reasonable steps to ensure that where the animal is missing, they must make reasonable efforts to recover the animal, failing to do so, they are held to have committed an offence. In conclusion, yes, your neighbour is legally obligated to make reasonable efforts to find your missing pet. DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE LAW THAT YOU WANT TO FIND OUT? Please send it to us at magmenshealth@sph.com.sg. The legal information here…

As ice-cool, superhero Norse deities go, you’re renowned for not taking life too seriously. Has your upbringing helped you to stay grounded? CH: I had an amazing childhood and lovely, brilliant parents. They shaped who I am. Dad worked in child protection – a selfless line of work that says so much about someone’s character. He always had a strong sense of right and wrong, standing up for the most vulnerable among us. As kids, my two brothers and I were hugely athletic, so we were always outdoors, kicking a football, riding motorbikes, surfing together, or playing water polo. We didn’t live in a suburban setting; our nearest neighbour was a couple of miles away in the Dandenongs, east of Melbourne. We fought like all siblings do, but mostly we had the…
