Stress and Bad Breath

Stress and Bad Breath

We all know that stress and nervousness can increase cortisol, which can cannibalize muscle tissue. It turns out that muscle growth isn’t the only thing that goes bad—so can your breath. Stress produces more sulfur compounds and diminishes saliva production, both of which contribute to breath distress. Chewing gum or sucking on mints can help.

Jake Sawyer

You might call Jake Sawyer the new face on BodySpace. You may have seen him recently in a lot of places, such as a Tylenol commercial that ran during the broadcasts of the Summer Olympics, in which he played a wrestler, a commercial for Harley-Davidson, guest appearances on the Comedy Central show with Lewis Black, the new HBO series “Little Britain,” Work Out” on Bravo, and a bunch of magazine ads for everything from photo labs to travel. Now, it’s not as if Jake has been working on being an actor for the past 10 years; that’s all happened in the past 10 months! It’s a big deal for a 30-year-old from Maine, who wrestled for the University of Nebraska.

Around the Worlds

Around the Worlds

I recently rediscovered a great old-school exercise. I think the last time I saw it was in Bill Pearl’s “20 Months to a Championship Physique” about 10 years ago in IRON MAN. The movement is part flye, part pullover and all-pec stretch. It’s called around the worlds.

I credit Milos Sarcev for bringing these back, as he’s had Dennis Wolf, Hide Yamigishi, Silvio Samuel and others add them to their precontest programs. Around the worlds are not a mass builder—you can’t go heavy, and if you do, you risk serious injury. As a finisher, though, this will tie the pecs together nicely while stretching out the lats, delts and even triceps a bit.

Steve Reeves - The King of Bodybuilding

 [Photographer] Tony Lanza and Steve were walking along, searching for a suitable location to begin shooting, when suddenly they heard a crash behind them. A man had driven his automobile into another car. He climbed out of the wreck, raced up to Steve and shook his hand, saying, “I just had an accident over there, and I had to come over and congratulate you because you’re the cause of it—I couldn’t believe my eyes!”
