    Powerlifting Magazines

    I'm considering subscribing to a powerlifting magazine. Which one do you guys think is the best. Powermag and Monster Muscle are both pretty good. Or is there another one I don't know about?
    Squat - 505
    Bench - 325
    Deadlift - 550
    Total - 1380@175

    I think Monster Muscle is good, and it is cheap, a nice combo.

    Is Powermag a different magazine than Monster Muscle? Are they associated in any way?

    Monster muscle is Powermag.

    Powermag was the original name. After a split of the guys who founded Powermag, the mag name was changed to Monster Muscle (the guy who runs the mag also runs Monstermuscle.com)
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Okay. I'll probably get a 1 year subscription to MonsterMuscle. It is a pretty good mag. I got one issue a while back.
