August 2012 Issue Preview

/ Posted 06.26.2012

Our August issue, as usual, is an Arnold extravaganza. We always pay homage to the big guy around his birthday, and this year we present his best IRON MAN covers. Amazing stuff—from mountainous biceps to Terminator bad-ass you’ll see it all. Then, Gabriel Wilson, Ph.D., and Jacob Wilson, Ph.D., look at the intriguing research on breakfast and lay out what you should be eating to boost your muscle-building and ripping results. Plus, Dr. Joe Klemczewski tells you how to peak your physique to look your ripped best—whether you’re headed onstage or on vacation.

Cory Crow gets Matt Christianer’s unique physique-champ perspective on building boulder shoulders. Check out his unique exercises, like barbell lateral raises (yes, with a barbell!), exclusively in the digital version:

For inspiration, Sean Sarantos reveals how to get up after life knocks you down. David Young interviews the active-duty United States airman after a brutal knife attack nearly ended his life. Sarantos, a CytoSport and TeamBodybuilding.com sponsored athlete, lives what he preaches: “You can never schedule when life is going to take you for a loop. You take the hit, get your focus back, and move forward.”

From the teen scene, Bodybuilding.com BodySpacer, Savon Wyant, tells how he went from the verge of an eating disorder to his dream of a healthy, ripped and muscular body at age 16.

IRON MAN Publisher John Balik gives high marks for Old School, New Body, the new e-book by IRON MAN editor in chief Steve Holman and wife Becky. The Holman Team have reworked Vince Gironda’s density training principles to create their own F4X System, serving up several excellent programs primarily for those 35+ looking for health, some muscle and the amazing anti-aging benefits of resistance training.
