WHAT A WEEKEND -- Nadal is Finally at Rest & Roethlisberger Plays Backyard Football

So let's start with Nadal, by now it should not come as something of a surprise to see him beat Federer or fight so hard during each and every point. What I personally wonder is how he does it? I mean here's a guy who had just played a 5 hour and 14 mins. match barking his "Vamos" and 2 days later he comes back and does it again to one the most competitive tennis players of this decade, taking not just a title from him, but an opportunity to make hisrtory.

Where does his energy and tennis-fury come from? What kind of antioxidants is uncle Tony giving him? What is he taking to maintain his energy levels so boosted? And yes, he has said that he likes more fighting to win than wining -- whatever it may be, it is clearly giving us a fun sports rivalry to follow. No discussion.

Anyhow, congratulations to Nadal and I hope he can conserve energy for future Fernando and Roger matches.

Now, let's talk about this year's Super Bowl. What a victory! The Pittsburg Steelers made history by becoming the only NFL team to win 6 Super Bowls, yet Warner was able to hold his head high in defeat. It even made Roethlisberger feel almost guilty about throwing that winning touchdown pass.

What was so great about last night's game is that, despite the Cardinals getting their upset spoiled in the final two minutes, Warner was still greatful that he was able to be a part one the greatest games and he has been fortunate to be part of three great Super Bowl games. So, Cardinal fans should definitely proud of that.

I guess now there are a couple of things we have to wonder about: is Warner's record going to make him a Hall of Famer and will he be back in the NFL next year.

Tell us what you think by posting some comments here.

Jessie's Grandpa Shines the Brightest!

This Father's Day, Jessie nominated her grandfather, Julio, for the Dad that Shines the Brightest Award - and after reading her letter - we at MenScience agree he deserves to win it.

Here's a little of what Jessie said about dear ol' grandad:

" My grandfather, Julio, is honestly the hardest working man I know. At age 80 you would think he would be retired by now, but he is still working hard to support my grandmother and make his children and grandchildren happy. My grandparents have raised ten beautiful children and now have plenty of grandchildren in which they both helped to raise.

Ever since I was a child, I remember going over to my grandparents house with my cousins and family members and doing ...all sorts of [outdoor] activities such as bike riding, playing ball, tennis in the backyard, even pulling weeds for my grandma. The amazing thing about it is how he could make a small bouncy ball into a fun game of basketball, or tennis, football, even soccer. Even at my age, I still enjoy going over to my grandparents house with my little sisters and so do his ten wonderful children... my aunts, uncles, and parents...

My grandfather is such an amazing person, father, and grandfather. He has worked every single day of his life ensuring my grandmother, myself, and my family all the happiness he can give us. He is an extraordinary person and I love him with all of my heart. He most definitely shines bright. He is my grandfather, my best friend, and most of all, my hero."

Besides an official MenScience certificate recognizing him as a stellar father and grandfather, Jessie's grandad Julio will soon receive a fun-in-the-sun Father's Day gift with four dazzling sun care products: the TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30, Advanced Lip Protection, Anti-Aging Formula and Pigmentation Repair Formula.

Men's Nemesis, the Terrible Emesis Attacks!

A severe, highly contagious 'norovirus' is attacking men with severe emesis (vomiting) and diarrhea, according to Men's Health article, 'Attack of the Puking Virus.'

Coined "Norovirus" after a 1960s outbreak in Norwalk, Ohio, this terrible stomach virus may be broadly described as 'a virus that lives in the stomach and causes illnesses like gastroenteritis, food poisoning and stomach flu' within 24 hours of exposure.

The norovirus is easily spread, which is why, according to the Mayo Clinic, 'an estimated 23 million cases of norovirus occur in the United States each year.' Spreading quickly between people via contaminated surfaces, food, and water, it shut down entire hospital wings in New York, and Boston.

Eating healthy and getting adequate sleep can do much to increase immunity to infectious diseases. Men who worry they're not getting enough nutrition may do well to consider taking a supplement like Advanced Antioxidants, which supports the body's antioxidant processes (critical to optimal health). Here are some other tips men can take to avoid infection - and avoid infecting other men:

- Wash your hands throughly, including the backs of your hands and wrists using a soap with anti-bacterial properties, like MenScience's Daily Body Wash. (The Mayo Clinic suggests washing for 15-20 seconds with soap and warm water before closing off the faucet with a disposable towel.)

- Clean contaminated surfaces with a bleach solution immediately, scrubbing on all hard, non-porous surfaces.

- Take care not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth in public.

- Take off work! The virus is at its worst for for the first 1-3 days, but it's still highly contagious for 48 hours after symptoms subside.

About Abs - Get Six Pack Abs By Summer

You Have the Chiseled Abs of a Greek God... Wishful thinking? MenScience offers some helpful tips to help get you - if not perfectly contoured - summer six-pack ready.

Get Motivated. It's the first and most important component to the Greek God body you so eagerly covet. There's a difference between desiring an end result, and having the constancy and determination to get there. It's important to learn to enjoy exercising, finding pleasure in both the immediate and long-term benefits. Some experts have suggested considering a healthy lifestyle and workout regimen as a job, one that you won't get paid for unless you follow through.

Drink Liquids. Besides curbing your appetite, this will flush fats out of your system. Water is great, but drinking green tea is especially useful. A powerful antioxidant, green tea is known to boost the metabolism to help burn calories.

Eat Breakfast. A study at the University of Massachusetts found that men skipping morning meals are 4.5 times as likely to be heavy than those that don't. Within an hour of waking, eat a high fiber or high protein meal, capping your caloric intake at 500. Complement your morning efforts by taking MenScience's Thermogenic Formula as it increases metabolic rate and calorie-burning to support weight-loss.

Boost your Metabolism. Get fit by eating small meals every three hours - it will keep your metabolism going and help with weight loss. High fiber snacks like nuts are a great way to keep your metabolism running when you're on the go. Take the Advanced CLA Supplement Formula in the afternoon to bolster muscle growth and decrease bodily fat for net increases in lean muscle mass.

Workout. Goes without saying, but do those sit-ups, crunches, jackknifes, leg lifts and tummy trimming workouts 3-5 times per week.

Lift Weights. The more muscle your body has, the more calories you can burn, even during rest. Cardio is great, but without lifting weights too, you're just losing muscle mass – which makes the fat take longer to disappear. For the greatest results in building a better body, do cardio in combination with muscle building activity.
