Men's Health November: Go Around the Storm

  This month’s theme sparked all sorts of comments when I mentioned to friends what we have in store. The general feeling about wealth, or more specifically, money as of late is that every individual is going to experience a precipitous drop in his spending power—if that hasn’t already happened. So, are you ready? I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not. However, instead of whining and pointing fingers—which is not what Men’s Health is about anyway—we’re prompting you to take action proactively to ensure you’re prepped not ...

Jump Off The Band Wagon

Sometimes a cool look doesn’t work: Wristbands that contain negatively charged ions do not appear to boost endurance. In a Belmont University study, athletes’ VO2 scores were no better when they wore one of these bands than when they wore a sham band or none at all. Other research has suggested that breathing the ions (which are naturally present in air) can impact aerobic capacity, says lead study author Patrick Sells. “But we didn’t find any benefit to wearing the bracelets.” To amp up your VO2 max, try adding twice-weekly intervals ...

Best Exercise To Improve Your Tennis Backhand

Blasting a backhand like Djokovic isn’t about arm power—it’s about core strength and good posture, says Brad Minns, a certified tennis coach based in Orlando. “You must twist your body so your nondominant hand can lead when you strike the ball,” he says. That means your hips, shoulders, arms, and core muscles should all work together. So build balanced strength with perpendicular medicine ball throws, which mimic the shot, says Minns. Practising with a partner is also a good way to simulate the complexity of a real game.   Image ...

Know Your Dark Chocolate

The wrapper is your Rosetta Stone. First, scan the front for the percentage of cacao, an indicator of antioxidant flavonols. As little as 10g a day of 70% cacao chocolate can improve heart health, Portuguese research reveals. Next, read the ingredients. Avoid dark chocolate that specifies “alkalinisation” (a.k.a. dutch processing), which strips out flavonols. What you do want to see is sugar and vanilla to balance out the bitterness of the cacao, and cocoa butter to hit that sweet spot of creaminess.   Image by Levi Brown
