Healthy For Men 64 April/May
Time waits for no man and how true this is for the 21st-century bloke. With family, work and, er, social pressures, there’s hardly time to fit in a decent session in the gym or a weekend run, let alone maintain a regular daily training regime. Here at HFM we understand this – we’re one of those men, after all – so this issue we’re looking at ways to maximise the time you do have to exercise. Whether that be high intensity interval training (p56), a lunchtime bodyweight workout (p59) or the best exercises to do for the time of day (p48), we’ve got your fitness needs covered.

I hope you have time to read it all!
