1989: Strengthen Your Core
Save your back, lift more, run more: It all starts in your middle, man.
1990: Tilt Up Your Rearview Mirror . . .
. . . just far enough to force yourself into an upright sitting position to see behind you, which is good for your posture and your aching back. We’ve used this simple tip ever since that year, when we drove a Geo Metro (55 miles a gallon, baby!).
1991: Never Eat Out of the Original Container
How many times have you dipped into a pint of ice cream only to find yourself staring at the bottom of the container 15 minutes later?
1992: Accept the Latexed Finger
We called prostate cancer “the overlooked disease,” and encouraged more testing and research. Have you been probed lately?
1993: Your LDL Cholesterol Number Doesn’t Mean Much
At least not as a stand-alone stat. That’s because it doesn’t take your “good” HDL cholesterol, which may counteract the bad kind, into account. A better gauge of heart-disease risk: your ratio of total to HDL cholesterol, a notion confirmed by a 2001 study in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
1994: Make Them Wait for Your Best Offer
Go to the bargaining table understanding what you’re willing to concede. The longer you sit on your hands, the more they’re likely to cough up.
1995: Don’t Check In for Surgery in July
If you’re scheduling elective surgery in a teaching hospital, shoot for late spring, when residents have more experience.
1996: Tape a Golf Ball to the Back of Your PJs
It’ll stop your snoring by forcing you to sleep on your side or front. Back sleepers often have blocked airways, and that leads to a host of troubles.
1997: Drink Green Tea, The Wonder Liquid
Few beverages (with beer as the possible exception) have been celebrated in these pages quite as much as green tea, that antioxidant-rich elixir that may help prevent prostate cancer, lower your heart-disease risk, and find your missing slippers.
1998: Compliment Her on What Counts
“You’re beautiful” isn’t a compliment. If you want to impress a woman, praise what she’s made, not what God’s made. “Lovely dress.” “Terrific memo.” “Incredible insight.” “Great joke!”
1999: Use a Blow-Up Workout Partner
We’re not sure when we fell in love with our curvaceous assistant (the Swiss ball, that is), but the affair was consummated when we devoted a feature to pushups and presses performed with our inflatable friend tight against our bodies.
2000: Don’t Blow Your Nose When You Have a Cold
It can force mucus and germs back into nasal passages and prolong the cold. Use antihistamines. And please—wipe.
2001: The Bicycle Crunch Is the Greatest Abs Exercise Ever
Imagine our thrill when biomechanics researchers at San Diego State University used electromyograph machines to measure muscle activity and figure out the best abs exercise. Fortunately, we’ve since discovered a whole slew of new abs moves the scientists didn’t test.
2002: Use the Stall Nearest to the Door
It has the fewest germs and the most toilet paper, because everyone walks past it.
2003: Everybody Needs a Best Friend
Spending time with a pet is more effective at reducing stress than spending time with friends, girlfriends, or alcohol.
2004: Lose Your Gut, Because Belly Fat Kills
Visceral fat (the stuff that settles in your abdomen) lets toxins seep into your vital organs. Which is why round-bellied men die sooner than flat-bellies. So eat six small meals a day instead of three big ones—you’ll stave off hunger and avoid overeating. The Abs Diet makes perfect sense.
2005: Drink Chocolate Milk
We found a study that says it’s a nearly perfect postworkout drink. You’re welcome.
2006: Hard and Fast Is Best
The quickest way to burn fat and build fitness is with the Tabata Protocol, which sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel but is a Japanese exercise technique that involves bursts of intense activity and short rests. It works with body-weight exercises, sprints, or exercise bikes. Less time, better body.
2007: Eat the Bacon
Fat doesn’t make you fat. Too many calories does. Fat is good. Just not too much.
2008: Earn the Promotion
Forget your rivals: Do your job and do it well. Where are you looking? At the scoreboard? At the other guy? Or at the assignment in front of you? In any competitive endeavor, team or otherwise, success comes down to the man in the mirror and how he completes his assignment.
