February Issue of Men’s Health

Fyodor Yemelyanenko – the undefeatable leader in ultimate fighting, the man whom the foreign press calls the “the champion of champions, the last emperor” – gives an in-depth explanation of his training routine, his guiding principles and his work. Of his 33 victories in world-class fights, Yemelyanenko clinched 22 in the first round – and of those, four in the first minute and 12 more in the second.

The February issue also announces the results of the PRO-Motion competition held from July to December 2009. Biology teacher Dmitry Gudush, who organized three activities under the aegis of Men’s Health, won a new bronze colored Toyota RAV4. The second- and third-place winners won a scooter and mountain bike. The prizes will be awarded at a party in February marking the 12th anniversary of Men’s Health magazine.
