    Hi Everyone,

    Basically I have never really been one to go to the gym and prefer going running/swimming/football or doing body weight workouts!! :laugh: I have recently been looking at local gyms though as I want to bulk up A LITTLE and get more toned!! :dumbells:

    Thing is I would have absolutely no idea where to start so I was wondering which magazine is best for workouts etc... Men's Health or Men's Fitness!?! I have been looking on both websites and Men's Fitness seems to be better in my opinion but all my mates have Mens Health and swear by it!! What do you think?

    If anyone knows any other magazines or good workouts... I am open to any suggestions!! (not bothered about body building)

    They are both a waste of time, read stuff on here or buy a book. All magazines do are drip feed you with information, most of it is useless

    Edit: Read these

    Neither they both suck. Usually written by phags who don't even work out.

    Or will prescribe the 'new workout' or 'ten tips for abs' etc etc etc - all bull - you eat well, train hard - most of the stuff in there is a waste of time.

    The stuff in the studentforum thread is alright - some is good, most is basics and a lot is quite airy fairy and useless - but better than reading those magazines. Bodybuilding.com articles are good - just beware of taking too much advice from people on steroids - look at people like layne norton who are natural. If you want to bulk up, starting strength with additional exercises or westside - anything where you're doing 3 full body workouts each week is best - as a beginner you recover quickly.

    You gotta admit though, they have a guy showing his air brushed abs and they carry slogans such as "GET THIS 6 PACK NOW!". Literally every issue of either one.
