    Flex Magazine

    Do people still read the muscle rags? I picked up a copy of flex today while waiting at the hair salon. The first 40 pages were ads. When I finally got to articles they were basically ads as well. Such crap.

    I only look at a select few anymore for those same reasons.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    When I was in high school, I used to get them for artistic reference. I wanted to be a comic artist. Having a library of superhero-looking people made it a lot easier to draw superheroes.

    The Ironman swimsuit issue was always awesome though.

    Yeah Flex is junk. Muscle and Fitness is waste. MD isn't too bad. Still tons of ads in there, but lots of halfway decent articles as well.

    It is my guilty pleasure bathroom reading material. I subscribe because it is cheap as hell compared to picking them up individually. One time I ripped out all the ads from one, to see how skinny the magazine would be. It was smaller than Tapout by the time I was done.

    I have picked a few MD's up at the grocery store recently because they have had interesting cover stories. When the flex subscription runs out this time, I am going to switch to that. Those articles actually are pretty good as Travis has mentioned, but it is still a supplement catalog. I don't have a laptop though, so I can't read WBB on the hopper.

    I was actually browsing the recent flex magazine while buying some aspirin at kroger. Weider chargers $6.99 for it now!!! And more than half of it is ads. My library actually has flex magazines so I might browse them there. But the whole purpose of flex is to have something to read while on the ****ter....but not for $7!
