Okay, gents: Since you follow Men’s Fitness in all its digital permutations, you probably know all about the stories we post every day on workouts, nutrition, and all-around cool stuff that makes your life even more awesome.

But what you might not know until reading this very sentence is that we publish a real-life print magazine on very high quality paper, with all those stories in one gorgeous, beautifully crafted package. Better yet: The brand-new June 2017 issue is out on newsstands now—and it’s not even June yet. That’s how much we care about keeping you ahead of the curve.

Show your crappy wi-fi signal who’s boss as you enjoy our latest reporting on how you can lean out with just your body weight (check page 111) and summer’s hottest vacation spots that won’t be clogged with tourists (page 94), all arrayed in a glorious printed magazine. There are also pictures! Pictures of people like Alexandra Daddario, the stunner who’s heating up the beach in the new Baywatch movie. (Say hi on page 48).

Best of all: This print issue can be yours, no subscription necessary. That’s why we’ve created The Men’s Fitness Newsstand Workout. It’s specially designed to get your heart pumping, your endurance capability up, and your toughness intensified as you get your hands on the June 2017 issue of Men’s Fitness.


Step 1: Get off your ass
Standing up is good for you. Do it. You know what else is good for you? Lobster. Check out our primer on the summer’s protein-packed delicacy on page 36.

Step 2: Do some pushups
Back straight, head in line with your body, elbows tight to your body, chest to the floor. Essential, like the best-fitting, best-looking swimwear of the summer (page 80).

Step 3: Go to your nearest purveyor of quality magazines
This is the cardio component of the workout, and that means you have endless options. Hit up the newsstand on the way to your workout—preferably while saving face with the best sunscreens of the season (yeah, you need it—see our explainer on page 64). Or head to the nearest drugstore, potentially as a prelude to our 10-minute abs workout (page 124). Better yet: Go to a brick-and-mortar bookstore and show the ladies in your life you’re an erudite son of a Socrates as you flip through our feature on four delicious seafood-and-meat-pairings from around the world (page 86).

Step 4: Buy the June issue of Men’s Fitness
Ryan Phillippe, the Shooter star who’s still impossibly jacked even at age 42, is on the cover. Check out his feature on page 76, and then steal the workout he uses to stay incredibly ripped on page 14. (We did.)

Step 5: Profit
Imagine the satisfaction on your next business flight when all the other schmucks on that 747 have to shut down their laptops during takeoff and landing, all while you’re getting the scoop on what it takes to land a spot on American Ninja Warrior (page 105). “Damn,” the non-magazine-endowed fellow passengers will say. “That totally badass dude has his shit together.”

And you will, because you’ll be reading the latest issue of Men’s Fitness.
