Men’s Health magazine finally puts a gorilla on the cover

MUSCLE-BASED periodical Men’s Health has unveiled its first ever cover gorilla.

The magazine’s May edition features silverback gorilla Akoo explaining the jungle exercise routine that gave him bulging arms and huge slab-like pectoral muscles.

Akoo said: “Akoo do pull ups from the big tree, three sets of twenty. This good for bicep and tricep, make big.

“After this, press ups for chest, many as Akoo can manage.”

“Then Akoo hungry, go eat.

“Akoo like eat, this good.”

In the cover feature, Akoo explains that he stays fit to defend his community from hunters and also because it gives him more confidence in meetings.

However Akoo is not concerned about having a six-pack: “In jungle big belly is okay, upper body main priority.

“Akoo focus on chest, do bench press with heavy rock, then go jungle chain pub, get female.”
