Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is walking into a chamber. It looks like a high-tech shower, or a teleportation device from The Jetsons. Liquid nitrogen vapors rise around his face as a digital counter shows the temperature dropping: -110° F, -120°, -121°. The footage is from a 2015 promotional video for the Las Vegas spa SubZero Recovery. (Mayweather is an investment partner.) SubZero specializes in cryotherapy, a treatment that uses extremely low temperatures to ostensibly help reduce pain and inflammation and aid in overall recovery. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below David Levi, the owner of SubZero Recovery, says the boxer became a fan of the therapy after receiving more localized treatments on his hands, elbows, and back. “Little aches and pains that Floyd had in his elbows and hands wouldn’t bother him for two to three days [after the treatments],” Levi told Men's Health. Mayweather isn’t the only celebrity to promote cryotherapy. Last year, … [Read more...] about Mark Wahlberg and Floyd Mayweather Are Big Fans of Cryotherapy — But Is It Legit?

This is a story about nothing. Its subject is you, unconscious. And me, striving for unconsciousness. It's about what's happening to us between the hours of 10:15 p.m. and 7 a.m., when we should be hanging z's like Twins fans hang KKKKs with Johan Santana on the mound. It's about me, in bed (and leave my wife out of it, you perv). Not a lot going on between those sheets, you say? I say, Wake up! Sleep heals. Sleep calms. Sleep rebuilds. Sleep provides an opportunity for the penile exercise you don't make time for during your busy day. Sleep shuts down your body and awakens your mind. In addition to being vital, it's also bizarre and contradictory -- it's the inactive activity, the void you fill by dreaming up entire worlds, the state of nothingness that means everything. Weird. The science of sleep is only about 40 years old, and among the things yet to be discovered by researchers is...um...how sleep works, exactly. That, and how to define it. But that's sleep for … [Read more...] about Good Night, and Good Luck
He’s famous for packing heat on the big screen. But on the day I meet him, The Rock is packing Tupperware.Specifically, he’s toting his translucent to-go tub inside the Hotel Bel-Air lounge, a quintessential L.A. hot spot. But the atmosphere looks dicey: A table of boozed-up real estate developers is causing a ruckus.Nothing good can come of an encounter with that mob, so he strides down a long hall to another classic eatery, Wolfgang Puck’s, which adjoins the hotel.A hostess quickly seats Johnson at a white-clothed table; he is backlit by a wall of glowing votives. A formally dressed server approaches. Johnson smiles and makes the ask: “Could you do me a favor, please?”The server waits patiently, perhaps wondering what crazy celebrity demand is forthcoming. But Johnson simply pops the lid on his container, revealing a pile of sliced chicken and scoops of rice.When you’re built like he is, you need to control the quality and quantity of the food … [Read more...] about How Dwayne Johnson Overcame Adversity (and So Can You)
Everyone has a nemesis. Think about yours for a second. Maybe it’s that guy who grunts a little too loudly at the gym. Maybe it’s that checkout lady at the pharmacy who never scans the club card for you. Maybe it’s your clone sent from the future to stop you from receiving the antidote. Doesn’t matter, the point here is that we all dream of confronting our nemesis one day, and there was a fun example of that this weekend when Kyle Bush and Joey Lagano squared off after Busch’s No. 18 spun out on the final lap of Sunday’s NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Kobalt 400.Footage of the race appeared to show some contact between Busch’s car and Logano’s car that apparently caused the wreck. Naturally, Busch wasn’t happy so he went over to Logano after the race and hauled back and socked him in the face. It happened that fast. No formal square-off and no initial “Hey, Logano!” that might have announced to the other driver that a fight … [Read more...] about Watch NASCAR Driver Kyle Busch Fight Joey Logano Right in the Pit Lane
