I enjoy the Ghostdog column because it makes light of how shitty the other mags are out there. That being said, I think Flex is absolutely out of control.
First, I dont give a shit about what Arnold has to say anymore. I don’t like reading the 70005th reiteration of his worn out training techniques.
Their training advice is horrible. Their gossip column makes me want to hurl and the advertisements from Muscle Wreck and their ilk are the only entertainment I get from the mag. I mean with “sentences” like
‘NITRIC OXIDE ESTER “PUMP EXPLODE” FUSION’
What the fuck does that mean? It’s just a bunch of buzz words slammed together.
I’ve had a subscription since my dumb high school kid days, but I’m letting my multi year subscription run out this year.
Also, am I the only one who thinks a picture of a shirtless, shaved, oiled, bronzed blond pretty boy body builder holding two mastifs is an ambiguously gay cover shot? (Not that I think there’s any thing wrong with that, but with all the fake hetero machismo in the mag…) It makes me feel like Im picking up a gay stroke mag when I go to the front desk to pick up my mail.
Anyway, rant over. Feel free to disagree with me.
