Snooze to Lose

Becky Holman

Most bodybuilders know that growth hormone is a potent fat burner. One of the biggest surges of GH occurs in the first two hours of sleep, so being relaxed and getting into deep-sleep mode early, without restlessness, is important.

Also, a hot tub session or a warm bath can help you fall asleep faster.

Priest Confesses That His Test Is Low

The days, they go by. Monday will always be Monday, blue as a bruise. Tuesday is chest-and-back day, the only way you can identify the everyday day, give it distinction. Wednesday is the day in the middle of the week, and the center of things is generally agreeable. Thursday offers hope, as most of the work or school week is complete, and tomorrow is Friday. Yes! Friday is Friday, a rainbow of colors if you plan to paint it. And where theres a rainbow, theres a pot of goldthe weekend, Saturday and Sunday.

Chest, 29; expanded, 30. Waist, 26. Arms, 8; flexed, 9. Height, 48 1/2. Bodyweight, 74 1/2 pounds... March 27, 1942. This person aint exactly in the mold of a strongman, right? Whod guess that from that modest beginning would emerge the sensational Tommy Kono, who set more than two dozen world records, winning gold medals in two Olympics (plus a silver in another), six world championships and a string of physique titles, including Mr. World and Mr. Universe. The list of Tommys accomplishments goes on and on, but you get the picture.
