Pamela Chong's Checklist on Showering Your Girl With Attention and Being a Man

It’s a big drawing point when you can look at someone in the eyes; your inability to do so can be considered a sign of weakness.

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 ...

Men's Health September: Step Into The Unknown

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?
