This Month's Features

NFL Special
Don't look now, but it's almost pigskin season. M&F went to the weight room with one of the baddest men in the league - the Bears' Brian Urlacher - to find out how to build snot-bubble-producing power with the iron. Also, find out what changes you can make to your usual tailgate spread - beers included - to keep that six-pack from hiding yours. Finally, we touch off a yearly debate with our annual NFL Strength Team.

Creatine Update
Just when you thought a good thing couldn't get any better, creatine goes and evolves on ya. Known for its ability to produce rapid gains in strength and muscle mass, the world's most popular and effective supplement now comes in several versions, all of them still with the same mind-blowing results. Find out which one suits you and your goals the best.

Arms Special
This month, we're flooding your gym bag with all the tools you'll need to build tank top-worthy pipes. With detailed programs and science on training biceps, triceps and forearms, you're sure to close out the fall with your best arms ever. Oh, and don't miss Arnold's 42-set arm blast - if you can't grow on this program, then you just can't grow.

Abs By Kris
IFBB pro Kris Dim doesn't stick to any type of sets and reps scheme for his abs. "Look and feel are the most important," says Dim, who boasts some of the best abs in the sport. It's not uncommon for him to finish the day with 80 or 100 reps on some of the toughest exercises in the book, and the results are undeniable. Spark your midsection's routine by taking a peek at his.

Get Ripped Quick
How ripped can you get in four weeks? Combine bodybuilding nutritional guru Chris Aceto's advice and our four-week "Show Me the Muscle" routine and find out for yourself. Summer may be over, but your quest for a leaner physique doesn't have to be.
