Men's Health Recycles Old Cover

What a dissapointing and shocking revelation!! And to think, I thought magazines like MH were the best place to get outstanding information and articles about fitness...

Wow! Shocking! Who would have thought that a high quality publication like MH would do something like this?

Re: Men's Health Recycles Old Cover

Yeah, every issue says the same crap on the cover anyway - Six pack abs, build muscle and lose fat, and how to get laid more. Then the respective article associated with that cover story is maybe a paragraph. It was only a matter of time before they used the same line again.

Or maybe it was just a coincidence that 1293 of something showed up again in the magazine...

Re: Men's Health Recycles Old Cover

I have to back up men's health. They had some of the most CF like workout's I have ever seen. Not all of them are that way, but they had a military style workout that included pull ups and burpees, and another that had you do 3 sets -8-10 power clean and push presses. Not all of them are like that, but compared to "Leg day" and "curl day" they are pretty good.

Re: Men's Health Recycles Old Cover

I always thought that if any of the stuff in Men's Health actually worked, wouldn't you only need to buy one issue?

Re: Men's Health Recycles Old Cover

Super squats work, but I can't imagine doing nothing but 20 rep squats for the rest of my life. Also peope have different goals. Milo is great if strength is your goal, but if your's run more to endurance, it wouldn't be the magazine for you.

THey also have articles not realated to training, including article about women, relationship, fatherhood, recipes, etc.
