FHM Nation, we'd like to hook you up with our colleagues from Men's Health Philippines, who did a mighty fine job of delivering the goods for their magazine's 100th issue this August. We suggest y'all give it a read because, as their Gilas Pilipinas-filled cover suggests, the whole thing is packed with hundreds of tips that will change our lives for the better.
Really, kind sirs, you should; we'll vouch for these guys any time of day. Because in this month's issue, we learned that...
...That a health and fitness magazine such as MH can (and actually already has) change the lives of its most devoted readers. Take for example, 24-year old Teng Sibug, who lost as much as 70 lbs in the reading Men's Health for the first time last year. "Nakita ko ang Men's Health as a bible, if I can call it that," he says. "That was when I really decided to lose weight. It's about testing yourself." Swing by page 92 to meet seven more readers who share the same sentiment.
...That, according to premiere point man L.A. Tenorio, basketball practice is all about creating a habit. Then the habit becomes an instinct that duly connects with our subconscious, which in turn will show in the actual game. "Slow the game down by learning your coach's system, and knowing the spots of your teammates; yung kahit nakapikit ka, alam mo na kung nasaan sila," he adds. Gilas Pilipinas standouts Tenorio, Gabe Norwood, Marc Pingris, Marcus Douthit, and Jeff Chan talk about excelling in the different aspects of the game in this month's cover story.
...How to treat lovemaking as total-body experience. How sex is almost meaningless without touch. How important body hygiene when she starts kissing you everywhere. How soundplay is just as vital as doing foreplay. How not to take the visual aspect of sex for granted. How making love reinforces the pleasure of food. All that and more. Page 80 has all the details.
...That Coach Chot Reyes has always kept his strategy for success quite simple: Your willingness to outwork the opposition will dictate the kind of leverage you'll have over them. "The only way to win against much more superior teams is to do things a little bit harder than they do," Coach Chot explains. Learn more about earning your stripes courtesy of Coach Chot on page 49.
