Here’s what’s in the April 2013 issue of Men’s Fitness
With hundreds of pills, powders and potions available, each promising to make you stronger, healthier, bigger and better, it can be confusing to know what’s right for you. So in our April issue we’ve created a test that will help you discover which supplements you need – tailored to your lifestyle, diet and training – to achieve your fitness goals.
Also inside, with spring and the potential for fair-weather training not far away, we’ve compiled expert running tips for anyone from race novices to marathon veterans. Alongside this is a guide on which footwear will help you achieve a PB.
We also show you how to upgrade your workout to harness the power of metabolic conditioning – a combination of cardio and strength training – to help you get stronger, lose fat and boost endurance all at once. Speaking of getting strong, we got British film star Mark Strong to talk about how he got into shape for his latest role.
Elsewhere we sent features editor Joel Snape off to cowboy school in Arizona (mainly because he looks good in a Stetson) to discover just how tough you have to be to survive life on a ranch. MF editor Jon Lipsey encountered the perils of altitude sickness scaling Africa’s second highest mountain, while content editor Ben Ince ventured to Rome to learn how to fight like a gladiator.
Squeezed in amongst all that we’ve got rugby drills from England’s new generation excelling in the Six Nations and an interview with Hollywood star Jared Leto on the physical demands of being a movie actor and rock musician. For all that, plus muscle-building meal plans and a free additional outdoor training magazine, pick up our latest issue from the shops or subscribe here.
And while you're at it, don't forget to download our brilliant new interactive iPad magazine here.
