“Fitness training [might] help you get more power out of your legs, to bowl for longer or to hit the ball further; but skill is about trying to do a particular movement, or having a focus on something in particular. Fitness gives you the extra edge, the extra one per cent on top of that skill – it’s a deadly combo.” – KAGISO RABADA, SOUTH AFRICAN FAST BOWLER REDEFINE FITNESS. South African cricketer Kagiso Rabada has been training hard and keeping fit ahead of the Cricket World Cup starting on 30 May. But his approach to fitness is different: he doesn’t believe you always have to kill yourself in the gym to achieve it. “Fitness is a lot of things. It’s playing a game of football, running around playing a game…

man, what a ride.

It’s been a relationship for 12 years of my life, and with the exception of my wife, I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. It’s been an older brother, personal trainer, financial advisor, therapist, career coach and more. And what a ride it’s been: our team has created everything from award-winning stories and digital training plans through to TV ads, MH playing cards, and – most importantly – an army of men who want more out of their lives. Men’s Health has made me healthier, fitter, stronger, and happier. Iknow I have a long way to go, but it’s made me want to be a better man; and I’ve no doubt it’ll keep on helping other men, too, especially with the talented Rob Cilliers at the helm of the…

QUESTION: Does Your Dad Need A Health Intervention? You love to work out. So why is someone you care about stuck on the couch? Here’s how to make the case for a more active life, without turning him off exercise forever.“I get this question from students all the time,” says Kathleen Martin Ginis, a professor of exercise psychology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. “Nagging never seems to work,” Ginis says. The result is often “behavioural reactance” – doing the opposite of what you want. “Nobody likes to be controlled, and that’s one way of regaining control from aperson who just won’t let it go.” Find out how to persuade without nagging: MH.CO.ZA/HEALTH FOUR Weeks To Lose Your Dad Bod Raising a family is no excuse to get soft (or get a dad…

THE MOVIE 21 JUNE TOY STORY 4 Buzz, Woody and their ragtag company of toys are set to return to the silver screen this June. While the last outing saw the ensemble of plastic figurines do battle with a sinister stuffed bear (before almost melting to a gloopy death inside an incinerator), their next adventure will revolve around rescuing a runaway fork. Bonus: the utensil is having an existential crisis. This is one of those rare movies that both you and your kids will want to see. Capitalise on that. 7 JUNE THE OTHER MOVIE: DARK PHOENIX With the Avengers dominating the box office, it’s easy to forget the X-Men still exist. While the franchise has had its ups and downs, many of the more recent films have shown there’s still hope for superpowered mutants. In…

We live in adigital world, where messages are sent from one platform to another in seconds. These conversations can be as important as a political announcement or as simple as a selfie. But before this medium was available to the masses, people had to find other ways of getting their messages across – such as street art. Before wallposts on Facebook, there were murals painted on actual walls. And graffiti tags were doing the rounds long before hashtags on Twitter. Although graffiti is still seen as vandalism in most countries, there are people who are finding ways to use street art to make a positive impact on society. People like Nabeel Petersen. The 36-year old Capetonian is the director of Interfer, a company that aims to uplift communities through storytelling and…
