Forget the paleo diet, it’s time for the caveman workout! Matthew McConaughey told Men’s Fitness that’s he’s been using rocks to get a hard body. McConaughey, who appears on the cover of the April edition of the magazine, says the activity requires more finesse than it might seem.
“It’s not as simple as it seems,” he says. “You shift the weight from high above your head, in your right arm, then your left, then rest it on your shoulders, adding more weight to your back, then your legs.”
The workout challenges more than just the arms. “You get a full-body workout just by finding out how many positions you can manage without having to set the weight on the ground. You also discover the stronger and weaker spots in your physique.”
Move over Gatorade and Vitamin Water. There is competition in the beverage case and the Material Girl is one of the first to hop on the newest hydration bandwagon of coconut water.
Coconut water is a wildly popular new drink that has recently hit stores all across the country like Whole Foods and other national grocery store chains.
The New York Post just reported that Madonna is investing $1.5 million in one of the largest coconut water manufacturers in the country, Vita Coco. Other celebrities like actor Matthew McConaughey and singer Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers are also rumored to soon be lending their cash to help make coconut water more mainstream.
And it’s no wonder. Coconut water is quick becoming a favorite among yoga practitioners, fitness enthusiasts and those just looking for a nutritious way to stay hydrated.
