MIND/BODY CONNECTION

Rebecca Hahn

Ian Sitren

At this time of year we often think about family and Mom, but most of our moms don’t look like 34-year-old Rebecca Hahn, who has three kids. One year after giving birth to her third child, Rebecca saw a “fat” picture of herself and knew it was time to change, she says. She set out right then to get into the best shape of her life. Two years later the self-described domestic diva has completely transformed herself—and also discovered BodyBuilding.com and BodySpace.

Always searching for more info, Rebecca found Body
Building.com to be a great resource, and she found a huge bunch of new friends in the BodySpace online community. Just to be cute and cheeky, she gave herself the BodySpace name of MILFNation, which for Rebecca means a nation of “Mommies Into Loving Fitness.”

She has competed in figure contests, placing in and winning a number of shows. In Arizona she won the America’s Fittest Model title, which qualified her for national-level competition in 2008.

So what could be left? Well, she’s a successful fashion model, and it looks as if she’ll make an appearance in the iconic magazine of female beauty, Playboy.

Visit Rebecca’s BodySpace Profile at BodySpace.BodyBuilding.com/MILF
Nation, and tell her you saw her in IRON MAN.

2008 Arnold Classic

The Arnold Classic has become the premier bodybuilding event of the year. Since its inception in 1989, it’s set new standards in entertainment, stage production and competition among the top professional bodybuilders in the world. The presence and celebrity of the contest namesake, Arnold Schwarzenegger, only add to the excitement.

Why Not Look Good All the Time?

Why Not Look Good All the Time?

I have “dieted down” about two dozen times in the nearly 20 years that I’ve been competing. Stop and think about that phrase for just a moment. If you have to diet down to look good, that must mean you’re carrying too much bodyfat to be aesthetically pleasing. In my case—and I know it applies to the vast majority of bodybuilders out there—I’ve always spent far more time in off-season bulking modes than I have in looking good.

Incense Linked to Cancer

Incense Linked to Cancer

Individuals who regularly burn incense may be at an increased risk of developing cancer of the respiratory tract, claims a new study.

Published in the October issue of Cancer, the journal of the American Cancer Society, it’s the first investigation of incense and cancer risk, according to its authors. Incense is typically made from plant materials mixed with oils and, when burned, produces a mixture of possible carcinogens, including polyaromatic hydrocarbons, carbonyls and benzene.

Skin Cancer Answer?

Skin Cancer Answer?

Arecent melanoma treatment was reported on in the September ’08 Reader’s Digest. Scientists took some white blood cells, the cancer fighters, from a patient with late-stage melanoma. They cloned the cells and then replaced them in the patient intravenously. The tumors disappeared within two months. Research on the treatment is continuing, but the procedure looks very promising for late-stage skin cancer.

Hugs for Health

Hugs for Health

Have you ever heard of oxytocin? It’s a hormone released by the brain that induces bonding—as in strengthening relationships. It’s been shown to reduce stress hormones like cortisol, which can derail workout recovery. It can also help lower blood pressure and fortify the body’s immune system. How do you get more oxytocin? Hugs help release it, and sex causes it to spike. So if you’re feeling down, get physical—find someone to hug. Just make sure it’s okay with the huggee.
