One Punch Max Out
The Power Max 360 is a resistance-based machine with hydraulic handles that can swing in every direction. UFC bantamweight Brad Pickett uses it to simulate punching, pushing, pulling, and clinching.

Pumping Pumpkin
Don’t give in to the temptations of high-sugar pumpkin lattes, muffins, and sweet breads that show up in grocery stores and coffee shops this time of year. Instead, use canned pumpkin as a flavor booster to your favorite pancake recipe or protein shake. Pumpkin is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and beta-carotene.

The Juice Is Loose
Watermelon juice’s sterling reputation among athletes is getting scientific support in a new study, which found that juice from the lush melon can relieve post-exercise muscle soreness. The report attributes watermelon’s healing effects to its high content of the amino acid L-citrulline.

Mouth Guarding
To keep your mouthguard germ-free, use a clear or white one so you can see any dirt or debris that is lodged in the crevices, and clean it with soap and hot water after every use, then rinse it with mouthwash.
