Our January issue takes an over-40 turn as L.T. talks with 45-year-old Vince Galanti. It took him two decades to get his pro card—but he’s learned loads about building muscle and amassing motivation. He shares it all, including his winning workout and diet. We’ll also have more from the Diet Doc, Joe Klemczewski, Ph.D., on how to rip up your physique, a profile on up-and-coming strongman Jon-Clark Eklund and the 10 keys to a world-record bench press—or at least an impressive new personal record.
