“Anybody can pick up a weight and do a weightlifting movement. It’s easy. The physical isn’t really what it’s about—it’s the mental side that holds people back from achieving their goals.”

True Blood star Joe Manganiello gives us the scoop on how he channels all his energy, both physical and mental, into maintaining one of the best bodies in Hollywood. He also talks about his new book, Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted, and brings you the workout that has made him the leanest and meanest werewolf on television.

Plus: The six-week training program that will whip you into shape, a comprehensive guide to fat-burner supplements, the kettlebell workout that got Mark Wahlberg shredded, the ridiculously hot Anja Zeidler, the only home gym guide you will ever need, and an excerpt from Sean Hyson’s new book, The 101 Best Workouts of All Time.

And, don’t forget to check out the great web exclusives to go with our January issue:
