When you hit the gym hard, it can be tempting to load up on every shiny tub of mysterious purple powder you can get your hands on in hopes it'll turn you into vintage Schwarzenegger overnight. But rather than loading up on some generic "best supplements" just because they're popular, it makes sense to identify your specific needs as an athlete, then address those issues first. Are you a hardcore power lifter? A physique-focused bodybuilder? A long-distance cyclist?
Quick: What do Superman, Bart Starr, and every character Arnold Schwarzenegger played in the 1980s have in common? They're tall, sure. And yeah, they're rugged manly men. But any casual moviegoer or sports fan knows: These guys are straight-up dominant. Now, scientists have some evidence that those traits—height, masculinity, and "dominance"—are bound together. And Hollywood is backing them up.
Men's Fitness editors test out athletic gear all the time. But when we had the chance to test out the new Reebok CrossFit Nano 8, we figured we'd churn through box jumps, burpees, and wall ball shots alongside people who literally do CrossFit for a living: 2016-2017 CrossFit Games champion Katrín Davíðsdóttir and 2017 CrossFit Games silver medalist Brent Fikowski. More specifically, we sent two editors to complete a partner WOD to get a firsthand feel for the new shoe.
@NYCTSubway Thanks for the reply guys. Appreciate it. It would have been helpful for planning if you’d posted about it on the Weekender, etc—disruptions are easier to deal with if we know they’re coming.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
