Men’s Health September: Step Into The Unknown


Muscular Nerves

  Your muscles aren’t the only ones benefiting from that workout. A research group at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel discovered that endurance sports don’t only change the condition and fitness of muscles, but simultaneously improve the nerves connected to it. The protein PGC1α that allows muscle adaptation to stress and training was found responsible for this effect—the higher concentration, the more efficient the synapses are in adapting to meet the requirements of the muscles. Now you have more reason to hit the gym.   Image ...

Ride Out the Stress

Is your significant other having a tough time at work? Then make sure you buckle up for a good ride. Researchers analysed a 12-month data on the sexual behaviour of women ages 18 to 20 who were either stressed or depressed. The study discovered that women under pressure were 43% more likely to have frequent sex as opposed to 35% of those who weren’t. However, no link was found between sexual frequency and depression.

Men's Health September: Step Into The Unknown

  So, when was the last time you changed your workout routine? Recently, a friend asked me about my exercise programme. Instead of replying “I thought I told you about it just a couple of months ago”, I hesitated and, self-effacingly, confessed that it was every bit the same as before. Even though I felt the urge to reason I was in my maintenance phase, I knew I wouldn’t be able to fool anyone. The truth? I was enjoying how comfortable it had become that full concentration was no longer necessary—perhaps not an uncommon disposition ...

Sweaty Solution

  Hit your pits with an aluminum-fortified antiperspirant. It will block sweat, starving stench-building bacteria, says Dr Carolyn Jacob, medical director of Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology. If your skin is sensitive, try a soothing roll-on, like Perspirex Original Antiperspirant Roll-on. For a clear shield when you’re shirtless, go with a spray, like Nivea Invisible Black & White antiperspirant. Still sweaty? Certain antiperspirants have stronger sweat blocker in the highest amount available over the counter.   Photograph ...

Outwalk Cancer

    Minimising the risk of cancer could just be a walk in the park, literally. National Runners’ and Walkers’ Health Studies collected data on 111,266 runners and 42,136 walkers. The data was then analysed by researchers to compare physical activity with the risk of developing brain cancer. The study found that the more metabolic equivalent used up from either running or walking, the lower the risk of death from brain cancer.   Edited by Lila Battis. Image by Inmagine

Beat Cancer with Beer

After a few cold ones, even your health looks better. Marinating pork in beer before grilling it may block potentially carcinogenic compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). A Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry study found that submerging pork cuts in black ale for four hours reduced the formation of eight key PAHs by 53%. (A pilsner marinade blocked PAH formation too, but only by 13%.) The scientists think the beer’s antioxidants, found in higher levels in ales than in lagers, help prevent the free-radical activity needed ...

Whose Line Is It Anyway?

  The key to a satisfying sex life is reading the script right. In a recent study, couples were asked separately to gauge their partner’s level of sexual satisfaction. The result showed that both emotional awareness and sexual communication play a big part in accurately judging her contentment. The secret? Being able to predict if she’s enjoying herself, albeit a skill which women seem to be slightly more adept at than their counterpart, it’d help if you were to pay more attention to her every move.   Image by

The Power Duo

    1 / KETTLEBELL SINGLE-ARM PRESS A kettlebell is best for this move because “you can start the lift lower, which is safer for your shoulders,” Tsatsouline says. “At the top it pulls your arm back slightly, improving mobility.” DIRECTIONS : Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a kettle-bell in front of your shoulder with your palm in, elbow tucked, and the weight resting on the top of your forearm. Press it straight up, rotating your arm so your palm faces forward. Do equal reps on both arms.   2 / KETTLEBELL ...
