In the January issue, John Cena gives us a behind-the-scenes look at his typical no-frills workout at Hard Nocks South, a private gym inside a converted warehouse on the outskirts of Tampa, Fl. It’s out of the way and that’s how The Prototype prefers it. Just him, the iron and a few alligators lurking outside the gym’s doors. However, when he’s not crushing his PRs in the weightroom, Cena continues to shine under the spotlight; both in the squared circle, and on the big screen. 

Along with learning more about his meteoric rise in the world of show business, Cena also shares his ‘8 Rules of the Gym’ for getting the most out of your weightlifting efforts. And if you’re looking for a killer upper-body workout, the one designed by Cena’s personal trainer, Rob Macintyre, will leave your muscles begging for mercy. 

In addition, we’ve got the ultimate way for true beginners, lapsed meat-heads, and guys looking to reset their programs with a solid foundation to start the year off on the right foot with our 2016 Starter’s Guide. You’ll also find a list of foolproof, body-sculpting methods to turn your New Year’s resolutions into reality. And when it comes to fueling your winter workouts, we’ve got you covered with a hearty helping of protein-packed, soup recipes.
