Welcome to HFM’s strength special. When it comes to hitting the gym, winning at your sport or just living a more active lifestyle, your efforts always come back to one question – are you getting stronger? If you can say yes, then your personal goals, whether those are burning off your belly, building new muscle, or amping up your endurance, will be able to follow suit. We have the workouts, nutrition hacks and the advice to get you there – and, if you want to be 30% stronger in eight weeks, turn to p55 for the ultimate plan.
When it comes to gym transformations, HFM likes to lead from the front, which is why I accepted strength-guru Rich Hudson’s challenge to get stronger with sport. I’ve recently taken up indoor rock climbing (bouldering), as I found it’s a great way to get fit in a sociable setting. My problem was my strength was failing before my fitness. So I signed up for a 10-week plan to amp up my performance and sport-specific strength without adding unnecessary weight. It’s a formula that can apply to whatever sport you love, so turn to p23 to see how I got on. This issue, we also lift the lid on vitamin supplements – do we need them and what does the recommended daily amount mean? And, if you’re looking for rippling abs, see Jake Gyllenhaal’s fighting regime for his six-pack secrets. Whatever your goals, may your New Year be a stronger one…
