November 2012 Issue Preview


Our November issue is all about helping you build a physique that turns heads and drops jaws with shock and awe. First up is an interview with Diego Sebastian. You won't believe the lean, ripped muscle on this dude. He's a walking athletic sculpture—with abs for days. He'll tell exactly how he did it and how you can do it too. Also, the Diet Doc, Joe Klemczewski, Ph.D., continues his series on eating for maximum muscle with a look at meal timing and precision. Then you'll be set to try on Roger Lockridge's 500-rep chest workout for pec size. The November IRON MAN hits newsstands the first week of October.
