Re: You, too, canít have a body like this

Men's Health (although still crappy) is actually starting to say more about doing more high intensity stuff as well as high weight/lower rep strength work. Something I've noticed over the past several months. They still have the same cover stories - get lean, have better sex, what to do at your age - but they are improving. The fitness models are still the same, and most don't even look they do strength work, but baby steps.

I'm not ashamed to say I wax my eyebrows. There is nothing wrong with taking care of yourself. And I'm the proud owner of about 4 chest hairs that I pluck from time to time since they look so out of place.

I might go and get a pedi today. I could use one.

Re: You, too, canít have a body like this

i wasn't aware that straight men read men's health and men's fitness and style magazines? seriously i always assumed these magazines were marketed towards homosexual men (not that there's anything wrong with that).

i have a beard, chest hair, even some patchy back hair which i admit is kinda gross, but as a man i'll be damned if i go get it waxed. maybe my wife will shave it for me...

i shaved my chest ONCE and never again, the itching was horrifying.

Seriously? MF and MH aren't. Men's fashion magazines, in my opinion, aren't geared towards anyone specifically. They talk about men's fashion and grooming, which is sexual preference immaterial. If there was a pie chart depicting % of men based off of sexual preference who care about how they look, homosexual men would probably have a bigger piece of the pie, but I think the %'s would be closer to 50/50 (minus outliers) than you'd think.

I'm sorry but my husband doesn't have much body hair (Good lord made him that way) and he's ALL MAN

now...men and tanning? different story

MEANWHILE... I found this article fascinating. You hear left and right about women's body issues but I feel men aren't adequately given the same "you are adequate the way you are" environment as women are. It's not fair to men!

Give me a hairy chest and beard any day. Naturally hairless men are ok, but dudes that shave - get that **** out of here.

Men's fitness is the reason I got into CF. They had an article about it. I bugged my fiance non-stop until she went and tried the baseline too. Then we both signed up and are almost at the year mark. We love it!

learn something new everyday, i honestly thought they were magazines for the g@y community. i mean there's a difference between caring about how you look, (most people who aren't chronically depressed care about their appearance) and constantly focusing on certain areas of the male anatomy and all the hot fashion trends and latest designers. i figured the latter is why it was geared towards homosexual men (again not that there's anything wrong with that at all).

You're not the only one. I had always assumed the same.
