Matt “Matty” Auslander

Exploring New Frontiers, One Satisfied Customer at a Time

M

att Auslander is no stranger the bar and grill business. For years, he was the general manager at venerable Wilton Manors staple Georgie’s Alibi. Thinking that the grass might be greener out west, Auslander decided to pull up stakes and give Las Vegas a spin. As he likes to put it, he soon learned “there ain’t much grass in Vegas.” After about a year in the arid Intermountain West, he returned to Fort Lauderdale. It wasn’t his first stop on the ‘service train,’ one that first pulled away from the station almost 30 years ago. “My first foray into the hospitality business was in 1985,” the native of Manhattan recalled. “There was a restaurant in my neighborhood that I frequented. I was in one night and the maitre d’ came up to me and asked, “Do you want to work here?” Auslander turned out to be a “quick study.” “I began as a server, then two days later I was promoted to bar back. I worked in that position, and then two days later I started bartending. I worked one summer for Julius in [Greenwich] Village [located about a block from the historic Stonewall Inn]—which was a real happening spot and I then in 1994 I moved to Fort Lauderdale.” Auslander worked at Club Elektra in Fort Lauderdale, and eventually to that Gayborhood standard, the Alibi. The experience would leave an impression. “Having worked for George at the Alibi, it gave me the freedom to go to another part of my career. I got to work in Saint Pete, and then opened Alibi Palm Springs, which was a great experience, but I really wanted my own place.”

That place would be Matty’s on the Drive, which he would locate at the northern tip of Wilton Drive, within throwing distance of Five Points. Auslander is proud of his accomplishment. “Since we opened four years ago, we have won ‘Best New Bar’ in 2008, in 2009 we won ‘Best Signature Martini,’ and in 2012, ‘Best Bar,” he noted before adding, “and now onto the next frontier.” Ironically, that next frontier takes him back to where it began. “We recently purchased the former Oscar Wilde bar,” in New York City’s Manhattan, “and while we are still working on the details, we are very excited about the addition,” Auslander says. Even as he plans for expansion to the New York tavern, Auslander is determined to provide great service to his existing local patrons. “We have our employee Turn-About show coming up October 15, and we will be heavily involved with Wicked Wilton Halloween on the 31st, including a dance floor and”—now hear this— “a castle we are building to coincide with the theme,” he said, adding ‘wickedly,’ “Anything can happen in the Castle.” Last Sunday, September 23, Auslander celebrated a birthday, which he insists makes him one year closer to 40. That “extra” year has made him a little wiser, too, and made him one of the community’s business owners who help make Wilton Manors a destination spot. Stop in and say hi to Auslander at Matty’s on the Drive, located at 2426 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors.

~FALL STYLE TIPS ~

Fall into Your Style This Autumn

It’s Go Time!

Pink: You Got a Problem With It? Yellow might look good on VP candidate Paul Ryan (or anyone else from Wisconsin), but lighter- skinned guys need to be careful about muted colors making them look sickly or ashen. If you spend enough time in the sun to enjoy the glow of a healthy tan, then you can pretty much wear what you want. As the sun makes itself scarcer post-Labor Day, be cautious about wearing anything that’s too pale. Pink is the perfect off-set for a paler complexion: It gives a healthy glow to a pallid skin tone, and (like red) brings out the color in an alreadystunning complexion. Plus, it’s PINK.

Sport a Coat, Sport. A sport coat or jacket not only makes you look fitter, slimmer, taller, and betterproportioned. It makes you look like a grown up. (Even if you’re going for that Endless Twinkie look, a slim sports jacket will impress Daddy enough to kick up your allowance.) Throw a casual shirt underneath, and pair it with some cool sneakers. (But avoid anything that has a logo or number—and no ribbed tees, or anything you would wear to bed.) Lighter fabrics are a must, so you aren’t all a-sweat until the cooler weather arrives.

chadallenjackson.com

T

here’s no way to get around it: Not being able to “enjoy” the change of seasons is the “price” we pay for living in the most perfect spot on the planet. When the weather is 80-degrees year ’round, one “invokes” the seasons, rather than living them. That’s good news, stallion. As we slide into the cooler, “schooler” months, here is some sage advice for a guy who wants to look—if not like a “man,” then definitely an attractive “male” of the species.

No “Redneck Tuxedoes.” This is what happens when you pair jeans and a denim shirt. New York Fashion Week star designer Prabal Gurung always wears a plain white tee and jeans (“I just want to be more of a blank canvas,” he said recently), and he looks fabulous doing it—see above regarding a sport jacket. Denim shirt? Try khaki pants.

Dark Clouds, Dark Clothing. Dark clothing hides a multitude of seasonal sins, including raindrops and the inevitable stains of daily life. On the subject, you should always have a Backup Outfit ready to go, in case a late-season shower soaks your shirt, pants—or worse, socks and shoes. Have a dry spare change of clothes handy, big boy.

Continued from Page 18

A Pen In Need. Parker, Montblanc—there are some unique and stylish pens that add a look of elegance and sophistication to your inside sport jacket pocket—and adds something else: Protection against seasonal germs, which are especially fond of hand-to-hand transmission, such as occurs when you ask the server for a pen. Now who’s thinking outside the box?

Top and Bottom Should Go Together (In the Middle) A light shirt and light pants call for a light belt—unless you want to look like the assistant in a Vegas sawing-box stage illusion.

Pocket Protectors. I love cargo pants—the military style and earth tones aside, they are loaded with tons of pockets! Keys, wallet, handkerchief, money clip, pocket change, Swiss Army knife—whatever you’re packing can find a home that’s in fast and easy reach. Find ’em cheap anywhere on the Drive or outer environs.

Flip-Flops Are For Politicians (and the Beach). Need I say more?

Term-Limit Your Clothes If you haven’t worn it in two years, get rid of it. There are many worthy thrift stores that will take your pre-loved items and find them a good home. Out of sight: Out of mind.

Why Screw With Perfection? If you particularly like a favorite brand, color, or cut of jeans, buy five pairs. Like the man—me—said: Why screw with perfection?

McDonald’s Counting the Calories at Mickey D’s

T

he new McDonald’s Premium Grilled Chicken Ranch BLT has 380 calories, which sounds pretty good where a McDonald’s sandwich is concerned. We know this fact because Mickey D’s made the news last week for launching a national roll out of in-store menus with calorie content displayed right next to the item price. While McDonald’s isn’t the first national chain to place calories front and center (Panera Bread has been doing it for two years), the company is certainly the biggest. In addition to promising to introduce new menu items over the next several months that will include more seasonal fruit and vegetable options, additional produce options and grilled chicken choices for Happy Meals, and new breakfast choices including egg-white breakfast sandwiches on an English muffin, the chain had started to showcase a Premium Menu containing higher priced entrees. The Premium Grilled Chicken Ranch BLT among them. The sandwich comes on a whole-wheat roll, as opposed to a hamburger bun, has leaf lettuce, thick-sliced tomato and bacon, and a nicely proportioned grilled chicken breast. For $4.49, the sandwich is expensive by McDonald’s standards, but a bargain in real life, and well worth the extra money for a realitively healthy lunch or dinner meal. The downside here is the 1,000 milligrams of sodium, much of which is contained in the bacon and ranch sauce. (For those who want cheese, order the McDonald’s Premium Grilled Chicken Club for $4.79—460 calories; lose the bacon and cheese with the McDonald’s Premium Grilled Chicken Sandwich for $4.29 and 350 calories.) It’s a winner for taste. Salads are also among the new premium items. Our favorite is clearly the Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken ($5.39), which mixes spinach, radicchio, carrots, corn, beans, and tortilla strips with a package of Newman’s Own Southwest Dressing. The calorie count here is 290; 390 with

the dressing as packaged though we recommend adding your own non-fat variety. This doesn’t mean that McDonald’s has suddenly become a healthy choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night snack (most branches now feature 24-hour drive-thrus). Even the most nutritious menu items are still too high in fats and sodium. The Premium Grill Chicken Ranch BLT, for example, has 10 grams of fat (three of which are saturated). And remember that 1000 milligrams of sodium, while recalling that the U.S. government recommends a maximum intake of 2,400 milligrams per day. Move over to the Double Quarter Pounder with C h e e s e ($5.09) and prepare for 740 calories, 40 grams of fat (19 of which are saturated) and 1380 milligrams of sodium. The famous Big Mac ($3.59) charts in at 540 calories, 29 grams of fat (10 of which are saturated) and 1040 milligrams of sodium. Mickey D saves the really potent numbers however for its early morning breakfast spread. Order their colossal Big Breakfast with Hotcakes ($4.99), but announce it to your stomach first. This meal, which includes three pancakes, a grilled sausage patty, scrambled eggs, crispy hash brown potatoes and a fresh-baked buttermilk biscuit, tops the chart at 1090 calories, 56 grams of fat (19 grams saturated—96% of your daily allowance), and 2150 milligram of sodium (90% of your daily allowance). And that’s without syrup or butter. To its credit, MacDonald’s now proudly posts this information. The only thing missing is a siren that shrieks when this item is ordered. The good news is that now the information is clear and so is the choice to eat healthier. Thank McDonald’s and tell them Guy Magazine sent you.

“Heroes” Hunk Rupert Everett: Quinto Has (Heart) Throb for “Glee” Star.

A

ctor Zach Quinto, who came out last October, is now making beautiful music of his own with “Glee” star Jonathan Groff. “I’m incredibly happy, I’m incredibly lucky,” the 35-yearold star—best known as the evil Sylar on “Heroes” and the sexy Mr. Spock in 2009’s “Star Trek” reboot—told Out magazine. Quinto says that it took him a lot of time and “a lot of work on the [therapist’s] couch to Zachary really get to a place where I was Quinto able to show up to a relationship with someone who was actually capable of being in one.” Congrats, Zach—rock out with your Spock out.

“Gay Dads” Suck (So to Speak)

O

British penly-gay Everett Rupert actor (“Shakespeare In Love,” “My Best Friend’s Wedding”) told reporters that he “can’t think of anything worse than being Rupert brought up by two gay dads.” Everett After throwing same-gender pops under the bus, he decided to be thorough, adding, “we’ve got too many children on the planet, so it’s good not to have more.” The actor’s foot-in-mouth disease has gotten him into trouble before. In 2008, Everett compared modern British soldiers unfavorably with warriors of the past, saying that today’s military men “are always whining about the dangers of being killed. Oh my God, they are such wimps now.” Cheerio.

Chris Brown : Once a Tool, Always a Tool.

T

he new ink that singer Chris Brown is sporting on his neck is causing a buzz because of its more-than-passing resemblance to a battered and bruised Rihanna, Brown’s ex, who was beaten by the singer in 2009, a crime for he pleaded guilty to felony assault and received five years probation. Was the tat some kind of weird homage to Rihanna and the hateful incident? Brown’s peeps—and the singer himself— deny any connection to the battery. That must mean he’s just a thoughtless, self-absorbed narcissistic douchetard. Same as it ever was.

The King of Angels Has Left the Building…

A

Bible that once belonged to Elvis Presley sold at auction this month in the U.K. for just under $95,000 (more than double the expected sale price). The Good Book had been a Christmas present for the King of Rock and Roll from his aunt and uncle in 1957. Elvis used it for the rest of his life, and scribbled notes and comments throughout the pages, until his death in 1977.

...And That’s Not All He Left.

T

he Bible was one of numerous pieces of memorabilia that were auctioned—which also included a pair of stained underwear worn by Elvis during a 1977 performance. Bidding for the shorts reached around $8,100, but failed to hit the minimum required bid (or reserve price) of $11,000 (thankfully).

Adam & Ease By ADAM STRONG

The Well-Stocked Home Liquor Cabinet

O

ne of the best things about getting my first place was bring able to stock my dream liquor cabinet. Having a wellstocked home bar is an essential for home entertaining (duh). Not as easy to figure out, especially if you’re new at this, are the essentials that go inside. For starters, you should include base liquors, complimentary liqueurs, and non-alcoholic staples, and get your hands on the bar tools that will help make your mixology job a snap. Be forewarned, there’s an expense to owning a fabulous liquor cabinet: The list I have sampled will probably cost around $500, but it covers a pretty good spectrum of standards, like a Manhattan, a martini, cosmo, margarita, whisky sour, and the like.

Taste? I Didn’t Even Know I Had Any.

F

irst and foremost, you should build your bar with ingredients to make the drinks that YOU like. Otherwise, you will wind up having a bottle of dark rum that just gathers dust.

Liquor Up!

I

t isn’t a bad idea to provide liquors and cordials that can be served neat (or “up,” without ice) or on the rocks without any further fuss. This would include Cognac and Scotch, and could also mean bourbon, Madeira, and port—a collection that you can roll out whenever you need it (just like in “Mad Men”). Store them in a cabinet, because light will slowly degrade the quality of the booze. Here we go: Bourbon: The essential American whisky, especially for the Southern gentleman, it is great for both sipping by itself or as an ingredient in numerous classic cocktails. Jim Beam and Wild Turkey are two standout brands of this spirit, which has been produced in the U.S.—and only the U.S.—since the 1700s. (While Jack Daniel’s meets the criteria for to be classified a straight bourbon, the distillery disavows this classification and markets the brand simply as Tennessee whisky, not Tennessee bourbon.) guy magazine 36 36| | guy magazine

Gin: The base spirit in many popular cocktails. Gin comes in four varieties: London Dry, Plymouth, Old Tom, and Jenever (or, for the English-speaking world, “Holland Gin”). Start your bar off with a London Dry gin, adding a Plymouth later. Vodka: The foundation of Modern Drinking, it is excellent for doing shots or for mixing into popular cocktails. Distilled variously from potatoes, grains, and sugar cane, vodka doesn’t have a strong color, taste, or aroma, which is why it makes the perfect mixing liquor. Different vodka brands do have different textures. Absolut, for example, has a silky, oily, texture while Stoli (“Stolichnaya”) has a watery, medicinal finish. For many of my friends, Grey Goose is the standard.


Rum: This tasty staple of the American Revolution comes from the Caribbean distilled from molasses. Of the two kinds, dark rums are best in punch-type drinks, while light rums are best for mixing cocktails. Start your bar with a light rum brand and add dark rum when you throw a party and serve punch. Scotch Whisky: Like Alec Baldwin on “30 Rock,” I enjoy staring intently out a window, holding a glass of scotch. As the name implies, Scotch is whisky that’s made in Scotland. The first written mention of Scotch is in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland for the year 1495, in which John Cor, a friar, named as distiller at Lindores Abbey in the Kingdom of Fife (friars and their stills!).

entertaining an over-35 crowd), get something with a recognizable name and you should be fine, Precious. Tequila: A staple for most bars, and especially for the under-35 set. The type of tequila you stock really depends on how you plan to it. Get “gold” tequila if you plan to make mixed drinks, like margaritas, plus it’s usually cheaper. For straight up shots, “silver” tequila is the agave-based drink in its purest form. Before I host a party, I usually have a bottle or two of wine and some craft brews on hand. And because a good host is thoughtful of ALL his guests’ needs, have some craft soft drinks and other non-alcoholic beverages on hand. Mixers: These will depend on what you are stocking in the hard drinks portion of your bar. Mixers include such basics as club soda, tonic water, cola, Sprite or 7-up, ginger ale, and orange, cranberry, tomato, and pineapple juice. Angostura bitters aren’t actually a mixer, per se: splash it in to add some extra flavor to certain drinks.

Scotch is divided into five distinct categories: single malt, single grain, blended malt, blended grain, and blended. Confused? Add to that the fact that there are two basic types of Scotch, from which all other blends derive: Single malt Scotch whisky, produced from just water and malted barley, and Single grain Scotch that--in addition to water and malted barley--may include whole grains of other malted or unmalted cereals. “Single grain” here means that the Scotch was made at a single distillery. (Ironically, making a “single grain” requires using a mixture of grains.) Among the most popular Single malt Scotches are The Dalmore (12- and 15-Year), The Macallan (12-Year), The Glenlivet (12Year), Glenfiddich (15-Year), and Laphroaig (10-Year). I especially like this last one as Laphroaig lacks the “kick” evident in many Scotches (and certainly the ones on the lower rungs of the Scotch ladder. Did I mention I’m a bit of a Scotch purist? If you can afford it, get one of the nicer Scotch brands mentioned here, or if you’re not too concerned (or not

Garnishes: It wouldn’t be a “fabulous” home bar without these edible decorations to give your drinks some visual assist. Your choice of garnishes will depend on the drink. Gin-based cocktails use olives and onions. Tequila drinks often include a citrus garnish like a lime or lemon. Never add a garnish to Scotch. Garnishes include cocktail olives and cocktail onions, horseradish, limes, lemons, Tabasco sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, and ice. It’s a good idea to prepare your garnishes on the day of a cocktail party. Glassware, etc.: An apothecary of invigorating elixirs requires the right tools. Some basics: martini glasses, rocks glasses, red and white wine glasses (yes, sugar, there are two different kinds), highball glasses, beer mugs and pint glasses. You’ll also want to have a martini shaker and strainer, as well as a supply of napkins and toothpicks for the olives and onions. A good mixologist drink recipe book will also come in handy. There are a million titles, and you can get “Bartending for the Really, Really Inept,” or something similar, cheap online.

iPhone Rivals Rock New Features But Steve Jobs’“Baby” is Still “Big Daddy”

L

ast week (BYTES, September 19, 2012: “Taller, Faster, Lighter iPhone 5 is a Techboy Dream”), we talked about the latest toy in the iOS sandbox, Apple’s new iPhone 5. It hit the Apple Store and other retailers last week, and is already surpassing sales expectations (which are on track to sell 58 million units by year’s end). iPhone’s rivals have certainly taken note of the terrain since the smartphone’s unveiling in 2007. At first, that meant pirating the iPhone’s features as closely as was legally possible (which wasn’t always done with an eye to the finer points, as Samsung learned to its $1.05 billion consternation in a recent patent-infringement ruling). The iPhone 5 (priced at $199 for 16GB to $399 for 64GB) represents more of a product evolution than a revolution. The 4-inch screen is taller than the one on the iPhone 4S, but isn’t wider, so it can still sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. The high-speed 4G LTE Broadband was added under duress, and is already standard fare on every other hot smartphone. The smarter camera is cool, but just an improvement on an existing feature. Don’t get me wrong: The iPhone is still in a class by itself, but the competition is getting better, and soon the other smartphones on the block will be much more than “iPhonies.” Some examples: Nokia’s Lumia 820 and 920 will include inductive technology that allows you to charge the units wirelessly. The Lumia 820 was unveiled this month, along with the Nokia Lumia 920, at events in New York and Helsinki. The 820 is presented as the kid brother of the Nokia 920, and the second device to run the Windows Phone 8 platform. Its screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels isn’t particularly impressive, and the company brass has kept news of the 820’s actual asking price tighter than a bear’s towel in Samsung’s Galaxy Note II a bathhouse. Samsung’s Galaxy Note II will have a screen so big (5.55-inches), you will

barely be able to fit it into your pocket, and will include a pen for taking notes and making sketches. By comparison to the iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is pretty darn big, with a higher resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels) than packed by the iPhone 5’s 4-inch screen (1136 x 640 pixels). The iPhone 5 Apple A6 Processor has 1GB RAM, versus the Galaxy Note 2’s 1.6GHz quadcore processor with 2GB RAM. Both iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note II are available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB memory variants, but the Galaxy Note II has the option to upgrade memory size using an external MicroSD card, up to 64GB. ($279) The Samsung Galaxy S III uses an NFC chip to allow easy transfers of photos and other items with just a single tap, and its 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen gives you all the rich detail of full HD in the palm of your hand. For music-philes, the HTC One V—which is available in various HTC One V markets through prepaid Cricket Wireless’ Muve voice plan ($50)— includes unlimited music downloads. The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has an oversized battery that the charge life up to 32 hours. That’s a lot of Angry Birds, hombre.

That’s Why the Lady is an App

L

ady Gaga’s upcoming album, “ARTPOP,” which comes out early next year, will be released as a “multimedia experience” that includes a downloadable app. “The most major way to fully immerse yourself in ‘ARTPOP’ is through the app,” Gaga said last week. “ARTPOP” will be released as an iPad, iPhone, mobile and c o m p u t e r- c o m p a t i b l e application that is, as the performer put it, “completely interactive with chats, films for every song, extra music, content, Gaga-inspired games, fashion updates, magazines, and more still in the works!” The artist also plans to turn the app into its own Gaga-fied platform. “I will also be able to upload new things to the app all the time, the same way I upload to twitter and LittleMonsters.com,” she said. “It will also be released in the regular physical and digitals,” Gaga added, “which will be unique and different to the app.” (Elf-like Icelandic performer Björk used a similar strategy for the release of “Biophilia,” making her the first major artist to simultaneously release a new LP as an app for iPad and iPhone. The app arranged the album into a field of ten stars, giving users access to interactive games, videos, animations, and essays—along with the music that inspired them.) Lady Gaga kicks off her North American “Born This Way Ball” Tour on Jan. 11 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and wraps things up right here in South Florida, with performances March 15 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise and March 16 at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami. (Wanna bet she stops by the Gayborhood either of those nights?)

Guy Travel

By ROBERT ELIAS DEATON

Portland, P

ortland, Oregon, is the third most populated city in the Pacific Northwest (after Seattle and Vancouver). Its warm, dry summers and wet, cold winters are perfect for growing roses, and grow roses they do. The 4.8 acre International Rose Test Garden (850 SW Rose Garden Way) is world renowned and stands in the shadow of Mount Hood. The garden contains over 7,000 roses from 550 varieties, making it one of the most impressive displays of the woody perennial in the entire United States. Roses blossom in this vibrant city through Halloween, so travel now before the rainy season puts an end to your fun.

The International Rose Test Garden is a can’t-miss stop on your trip to Portland

The most convenient flights from Fort Lauderdale airport to Portland are on United Airlines that makes a brief pit stop in Houston on the way. Current economy fares run around $320 round-trip. The Red Line of the Tri-Met Rail System can transport you directly in the walking-friendly downtown area were a rental car is not required. While Portland has its share of luxury hotels and budget bed-andbreakfasts, our favorite place to stay has always been The Nines (525 SW Morrison St.), an exclusive inn situated in the historic Meier & Frank Building, built in 1909 as the largest department store west of the Mississippi. The structure currently houses a branch of the Macy’s Department Store chain on the lower levels with the top nine floors remodeled as the 330The Nines, at the Meier & room The Nines Hotel. Play, relax, Frank Building and luxuriate in the sophisticated elegance of this luxury hotel where king-bedded rooms start at $199. The Nines is conveniently located across from Pioneer Courthouse Square, a public space

The City of Roses

known as Portland’s Living Room, so popular is this bricked plaza. It’s also the site of the MAX Light Rail system, where the Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow lines converge, and can get you anywhere in the city within a few minutes, including to the array of gay clubs this illusive city has to offer. The hottest dance club in town at the moment is C.C. Slaughters (219 NW Davis St.-- 1 block west of the MAX Red & Blue line stop on 1st Ave, Old Town), with a large packed dance floor, adjoining show lounge, and no cover charge ever. Sunday is swimsuit night; Wednesday it’s time for underwear. If you need to be more undressed than that, head over to Silverado (318 SW 3rd Ave.—Oak/SW 1st Ave. MAX station). The Eagle Portland (835 N Lombard St.) follows the theme of most Eagle Shanghai Underground bars appealing to leather Tour transports you back to desperate times men and the boys who love them. Stop by Thursday and play naked billiards. That’s the one with the balls and the cue stick. At the other end of the club scene, Portland’s elegant piano bar and lounge is Hobo’s (120 NW 3rd Ave.) located in Old Town. The dinner menu is a diverse affair with a delectable Blackened Cold-Water Salmon ($19) that is seared and roasted with a cucumber wasabi tarter sauce that will clear your sinuses if not your wallet. Jim Blackburn is on the piano Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 8 p.m. Hobo’s is also the starting location for the Shanghai Underground Tour, (503-622-4798) an hour-and-a-half guided exploration of the brickarched tunnels that criss-cross under the streets of Old Town Portland (formerly the city’s Old North End), where white slavery was rampant during the early 1900s. Tours begin at 6:30 p.m., with extra tours scheduled for Halloween. An underbelly never looked so fascinating.

Robert Elias Deaton is a world-traveling epicure who enjoys the finer things in life.

Put the Growl Back Into Your Workouts!

S

ummer in sunny tropical Florida is about to turn into autumn. Sure, that means a hurricane scare or two, and maybe a little less humidity, but all in all, we still have several more months of sun and fun in store for us. If your summer workout routine has been less than sizzling, then let’s take advantage of the brand new season ahead to put some growl back into your workouts. I have a fantastic little formula to stoke up anyone’s workout and it’s called the Five “R’s”. When you are in the gym pay attention to each of these five elements and your time there will pay off 5, 10, 20 fold! Whether you are a beginner or a pro you are sure to benefit from following these principles. The first “R” stands for range of motion. When I speak of range of motion, I mean the complete movement capability of a joint. Every exercise from a bicep curl, lunge or crunch should be performed through the muscle’s complete range of motion from a fully stretched position to a fully contracted position. For example, during a bicep dumbbell curl, begin with your arms at your sides, then curl each dumbbell to your chin by fully flexing your elbow, contract your biceps with all your might and supinate your forearm. Pause at the top of the motion for a fraction of a second and squeeze your bicep before you slowly lower the weight back to starting position. The second “R” stands for resistance (or, the weight that is moved). Resistance must be small enough that the exercise can be performed through the full range of motion without cheating, swinging or jerking the weight. Yet, resistance must be such that it taxes the muscles for the desired number of reps. Your 1 rep max is the

48

|

guy magazine

most weight that you can safely raise for one rep. A rule of thumb is to keep within 55% - 85% of your 1 rep max when doing your reps and sets. The third “R” stands for repetitions. When choosing the number of repetitions (how many times the exercise is to be done in a set), you must first decide what you want from your workouts. Generally, low reps (3-8) with heavier weights, will produce greater strength. Medium reps (10-20) with moderate to heavy weight are best for producing size. High reps (20 or more) with lighter weights are best for tightening, toning and producing aerobic strength endurance. The fourth “R” stands for rest. A working muscle needs about 1-3 minutes rest between each set of reps before it is ready to function near full strength capacity again for the next set of reps. This period of time gives your body time to replenish ATP and phosphocreatine, the two chemicals your muscles need for every contraction. Between sets, don’t just sit there, get up, walk around, stretch and re-hydrate yourself. Finally, the last and fifth “R” stands for recovery. Recovery is crucial for muscle growth and rebuilding. Muscles fibers cannot grow unless you allow them to rest between workouts. As a rule, you should not exercise the same muscle group two days in a row, and usually not more than 3 times a week. Allow 48-72 hours of rest between workouts for each muscle group. For example, if you work chest on Monday, don’t work it again until Thursday. Allow yourself at least one day of rest per week, otherwise your body will become over trained or injured. Need more sound advice on working out? Contact trainertomb@aol.com!

David kitchen

Living Free, Riding Smart

D

avid Kitchen has such a familiar face that it might take a second for you to remember exactly from where you know him. The ever-conscientious, ever-smiling Kitchen, who works at Rosie’s Bar and Grill in Wilton Manors, will once more participate in the Smart Ride. What’s different for Kitchen is that this year, he is taking stand against a national outrage: The bullying of LGBT teens. “This has to stop,” says Kitchen. “This is my fourth Smart Ride,” notes Kitchen, who says that the beneficiary this year of his fundraising—and cycling—efforts will be the Oakland Park-based Live Free Be Strong Foundation, which has a self-described mission of taking a stand to end bullying, by supporting grassroots organizations which provide education and outreach services. “There are many members of the LGBT community who have experienced bullying,” says Kitchen, noting something that has become all-too-familiar in today’s headlines. “One thing that I have found is that there is no age range,” he adds. “It can be a young man or woman coming out and dealing with their sexuality, or it can be someone older.” Kitchen says that Live Free Be Strong attempts to impact three different groups which are ‘impacted’ by bullying: “Those who are bullies, those who are being bullied, and those who stand by and do nothing.” The Arizona State alum has done more than take his bicycle on the road. “I recently made a presentation at Fort Lauderdale High School,”

he explains, and notes that “on September 23 we will be collecting money at the Royal Palms Resort T Dance. There will be a fashion show presented by the Pride Factory, and eyewear provided by Chic Optique, and an open bar for one hour sponsored by Bud Light. Then on November 10, we are holding a yard sale, with all money going to the organization.” As well as the call to give to the community, Kitchen recognizes that there are individuals, businesses, and organizations that help make life better in our gay corner of the world. “Sidelines Sports Bar has been so supportive of the Smart Ride,” he notes. “They are hosting a Bar Olympics which will feature pool tournaments, poker, and darts, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Smart Ride.” He has high hopes to be part of an ambitious agenda set by the organizers and sponsors of the event. “It’s our wish to raise $1 million this year for the Smart Ride,” he says. Those who want to be a part of that projected success, and to assist the Live Free Be Strong team riders in accomplishing it, can visit smartride.org, navigate to team 959, and enter the amount they would like to donate. Kitchen says that he has excellent role models for giving back to the community, and making a meaningful difference in the lives of others. “I learned everything from John Zieba and Cliff Mulhahy, the owners of Rosie’s,” he says, with real gratitude. “I’ve watched these guys, and they truly love the community.” That sentiment seems to be catching.
