clothes best flatter a fit body. When it comes to your appearance, apparel is only part of the equation; it is important to eat well, drink well, and exercise occasionally.

The best way to make your clothes look better is to shape your body to fit better into your clothes. While tailoring is still important, your clothing will naturally follow the contours and shapes of your body best when you're in your best form.

you should be able to save your own life: five fitness benchmarks.

The art of manliness put out this little article and it's kind of awesome. I mean, as you start getting older, you need to put your fitness goals into perspective. Accept the fact that you'r enot going to be Mr. Universe, and therefore, don't need to be able to benchpress 500 pounds. You're not going to be an Olympic distance runner and probably don't need to be able to run two marathons back to back. Your biceps probably don't need to be bigger than your waist and you probably don't need to be taking 12 supplements to get you jacked.

Let's take a step back into reality and focus on some basic skills that could potentially help you save your own life someday.

Every Man Should Be Able to Save His Own Life: 5 Fitness Benchmarks a Man Must Master

In 1926, strong man and physical culture enthusiast Earle Liederman wrote a book calledEndurance. In it, Liederman makes the case that every man should be physically fit enough to save his own life in an emergency. He sets out five fitness benchmarks that indicate whether a man is up to this task. None require you to be able to bench press 500 pounds or have six pack abs. Rather, the benchmarks focus on having the strength and endurance to run, swim, or pull yourself to safety. If you’re looking for a fitness goal, the five fitness benchmarks Liederman lists are a good place to start.

“Every man should be able to save his own life. He should be able to swim far enough, run fast and long enough to save his life in case of emergency and necessity. He also should be able to chin himself a reasonable number of times, as well as to dip a number of times, and he should be able to jump a reasonable height and distance.

A man should be able to...

Swim at least half a mile or more


Run at top speed two hundred yards or more


Jump over obstacles higher than his waist


Pull his body upward by the strength of his arms, until his chin touches his hands, at least fifteen to twenty times


Dip between parallel bars or between two chairs at least twenty-five times or more


...If he can accomplish these things he need have no fear concerning the safety of his life should he be forced into an emergency from which he alone may be able to save himself.”

Better get started on that new fitness regime.

'hiit' it hard.


Let’s fast forward one month to when you go back to school, or to work, or wherever it is you’re headed at the end of summer. You see all the ‘old gang’, or maybe meet some new people and you’re proudly touting some new threads. Unfortunately, that’s that’s not all you’re sporting. You’ve kicked back over the summer and because of that you’re (not so proudly) sporting a new gut. A muffin top/ flat tire/ beer belly/ whatever you want to call it, chicks don’t dig it. Let’s face it, all those summer BBQ’s, Snow Cones, homemade Ice Cream, and buttered popcorn have not been kind to your belly. It looks like the only summer lovin’ you’ve gotten was from the value menu.

Here are some tips to get rid of that unwanted cushion before the fall. It’s called HIIT. High Intensity Interval Training. If you want to torch fat fast, you want to train in short bursts of energy -- get your heart going really fast, calm it down, then rev it up again, and repeat. This has proven to obliterate fat much more effectively than long, low intensity training, such as jogging.

Without getting too nerdy, here’s the why: The changes in the speed of your heartbeats burns a lot more calories than just keeping it at a constant, steady pace. Your heart has to use calories to speed up and pump blood to the rest of your body, and then uses more to calm everything back down. HIIT builds muscle as well, and muscle helps in fat loss, but more on this later.

So now you know the why, here’s the how:


Walk at Level 4......1:20

Jog at Level 6.5.....0:45

Sprint at Level 10..0:30

Repeat 6 times

3 days a week

Keep in mind that this doesn’t have to be on a treadmill, you can modify this for running on a field, track, or down the street.

Here’s some motivation -- when you lean over at the office or at school to pick up your bag and your shirt comes up, that’s when the muffin tops make their grand debut and it’s never pretty...You don’t want this! So do something about it.
