To pick the most innovative and stylish items that appear in this month’s magazine, our editors considered hundreds of well-designed pieces of gear before narrowing it down to the final 42 items. You won’t find a sleeker group of stuff than this, from the $2.7 million street-legal Mercedes-AMG Project One (pictured above) built with 1,000 horsepower and F1 style to high-tech gadgets for your home and your next adventure, including new bikes, skis, shoes, and sunglasses.
This September, we’re rooting for more than just gear: Get ready for some football. Whether you’re a dedicated fan or you’re still picking your favorite team, our 2018 NFL preview, “15 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the NFL”, has all the coverage you need going into this season. We give you a rundown of the underdogs and rookie QBs to watch, why it’s tough not to cheer for the Philadelphia Eagles, Odell Beckham, Jr.’s comeback, and more.
In The Blueprint section, you’ll find tons of must-know health news and simple ways to get more out of your time in the gym. For your next Workout of the Month, you’ll complete just three circuits. It’s a full-body routine that uses one piece of equipment in the weight room: the cable pulley machine. No complicated group of workout gear, no unnecessary moves—45 minutes with the cable and you’re out of there. We also put together a complete guide to keeping your back strong with expert advice and essential preventative moves you can do wherever you go.
There’s plenty to do outside the gym, too, thanks to our adventure race calendar. We picked a dozen events all across the country to last you until winter. Whether you’re ready for an epic off-road half-marathon or a fall trail ride, you’ll find a race that’s right for you.
Finally, Rob Lowe, who appears in the upcoming The Bad Seed on Lifetime, gets the Last Word. In our Q&A, Lowe answers our questions on the best ways to handle criticism and regret, plus offers his best advice on marriage and raising kids.
