  1. A guy gave me a free magazine today when buying protein as a promotional gift. i was paroozing through it i saw muscle tech offers a product called nitro tech hardcore that guarantees 8.4lbs of muscle in 4 weeks :wtf: 50lbs to your bench in 6 weeks

    The (results not typical) part allows it.

    yeah thats why i dont buy fitness magazines period, i havent since maybe a half a year into my bodybuilding "career" when i realized how fucking DUMB they were. I'll start reading some potentially interesting article about arms or something ill turn the page, see greg valentinos arm pic and an ad for "superswole700000000" that promises you those arms by the time you get to page 95.

    i read those magazines for articles if they seem interesting




    all advertisement sucks. They do what appeals to the generic folk, its the same reason u see people who buy 7 series bmw's when they make like 40k/year

    just looking at my friends magazine today and saw some huge maa fucka with stupidly cut abs. "take this one pill 10 times a day for 1 month and do a regular workout and you will get abs like this----for only 200 dollars a bottle."

    I hate mags aimed toward people who don't know shit about lifting and all that they feed them is useless information about some faggot ass pills or supp.

    The only reason I pick them up at the gym is to ogle the fitness models.

    thats the only reason they can do that "Get a 12 month subscription for only $12.95 thats 85% savings!" They get all the money from the ads anyways
